Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization uses a medical stainless steel bevelled edge blade to treat myofascial restrictions and adhesions, pain, inflammation and “tightness”. Tissues warm quickly with the scraping movement and can target areas that can’t be reached with finger, elbows or knuckles. This is a deep localized treatment, not for the whole body. IASTM is efficient and effective, and non-invasive with only a minor discomfort. The goal of IASTM is to create an environment in the body for optimal healing in a very short time (5 minutes). This therapy can be included in any Massage Therapy session or as an appointment by itself. 3-4 days rest between appointments is recommended.
