Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a technique that utilizes stainless steel tools. Each tool has a beveled edge that allows tools to be smoothly pulled across the skin to apply pressure to the desired underlying muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
What are the benefits of IASTM?
- Improve blood flow
- Reduce myofascial adhesions
- Improve range of motion
- Decrease muscular pain
- Reduce friction between tissues
