Deep Tissue Hyperthermia

Deep Tissue Hyperthermia services offered in Buffalo, NY

At OWM Deep tissue hyperthermia with Thermofield is used to treat multiple conditions.

Deep tissue hyperthermia is achieved with radio frequency energy. This type of heat is able to penetrate as deep as six centimeters. Studies on deep tissue hyperthermia have shown numerous benefits: 

  • Increased circulation in the injured tissue, joint, or nerve promotes faster healing and pain reduction.
  • Increased circulation in solid tumors promotes activation of the body's immune defense system against the tumor, and better penetration of targeted chemotherapy and radiation therapy into the tumor
  • Direct tumor cell death
  • Increased collagen and elastin production restores healthy skin tone

Deep Tissue Hyperthermia by OWM


The benefits of deep tissue hyperthermia are numerous. Most importantly, hyperthermia activates our bodies natural healing mechanisms which can then promote repair as well as fight off cancer and infections.



Joint Health

  • Promotes healing of cartilage, ligament, and tendon
  • Reduces joint inflammation
  • Reduces joint stiffness and pain



Nerve Health

  • Promotes nerve repair
  • Reduces nerve pain



Pelvic Health

  • Reduces pelvic pain in chronic pain syndromes
  • Reduces pain in pudendal neuralgia



Vaginal Health

  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscle
  • Reduces the size of the labia and tightens the vagina
  • Improvement of stress urinary incontinence  
  • Improved vaginal lubrication
  • Improved sexual function and satisfaction
  • Heightened orgasmic response



Prostate Health: BPH and Cancer

  • Reduces prostate inflammation
  • Improves urinary flow
  • Reduces prostate-related pain
  • Improves erectile function
  • Kills prostate cancer cells




  • Effective in causing direct cell death of solid tumor cells creating either shrinking or elimination of the tumor
  • Increases immune surveillance of the body which helps direct the body’s cancer-killing cells to the site of the tumor
  • Improves penetration of chemotherapy and radiation therapy into targeted tumor tissue


  • Deep Tissue Hyperthermia is not FDA-approved as a therapy for cancer and is used as an adjunct to conventional cancer therapy at OWM
  • 10-12 treatments are recommended for pain management performed twice a week for 30 minutes with a maintenance treatment performed every six to twelve months
  • 3-30 minute treatments are recommended for prostate enlargement performed every other week with maintenance treatments performed monthly to every three months
  • 3-30 minute treatments are recommended for vaginal rejuvenation performed every other week with maintenance treatments performed every six to twelve months
  • 10-12 treatments are recommended for tumor control performed twice a week for 45 minutes. Treatments are frequently continued beyond 12 sessions until either remission or optimal tumor control is achieved
  • The treatment is essentially painless and is very well tolerated
  • Heat tolerance is developed after a few sessions, allowing for faster heating of the tissue and a longer therapeutic heating window with subsequent sessions



  • Deep tissue hyperthermia is applied with a Thermofield device.
  • A pad is applied to the target area that is connected to the Thermofield by a wire and the desired heat temperature is set.
  • Thermofield monitors and maintains a constant temperature of the tissue treated
  • Multiple areas can be treated by rotating the pad to the desired area and treating that area for 30 to 45 minutes


  • Deep tissue hyperthermia with Thermofield allows for deep heat penetration without heating the skin
  • This prevents skin burns
  • Continuous monitoring of the target tissue temperature prevents burning or injury of the area treated

How's Thermofield hyperthermia different?

For Vaginal and pelvic floor rejuvenation:

OWM’s patented Thermofield treatments are 50% to 100% less expensive and transfer nearly 700 times more energy into the tissue than wand-based applicators.

For Pain conditions:

OWM’s patented Thermofield treatments achieve higher and more consistent therapeutic temperatures than its competitors without risk of burns or tissue injury.
