Audio sonic vibrator

This is a sound wave vibrator which is placed on the skin, vibrating smoothly up and down and gently assaging the tissues. Contact is maintained over the area being treated and the vibrations penetrate quite deep into the underlying tissues.

Sound waves are transmitted to the area requiring treatment through a sound head which is applied without pressure to the surface of the skin. There are two applicators, a round ball-shaped head providing sound waves to a small area and a disc-shaped head with a larger surface area for normal use. The sound waves can penetrate up to six centimetres within the body, allowing the therapist to treat areas which are ii inaccessible to conventional manipulative techniques. When the sound wave energy produced has been absorbed by the body tissues the sound waves t cease to travel further.

The vibrator is used normally for the specific effect of relieving tension in tense contracted muscles but § may also be used when the use of Oratory vibrators contraindicated because of hypersensitivity*
