German term or phrase: Schallmassagetherapie
This is form of treatment involving a massage device which produces sound waves which penetrate the skin. Can anyone think of a translation which doesn't involve writing a whole sentence?

Explanation:

Sound massage therapy


Explanation:
Since the original does not specifically mention ultrasound I would just go with sound massage and possibly ask the client for a reference.

Hope that helps,
