Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is an option that we use to resolve pain and tightness in the body. IASTM is a treatment utilizing hand held instruments to break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves).
IASTM is effective in the following:
Increase muscle flexibility
Alleviate muscle spasms and cramping
Improve blood circulation to facilitate healing and muscle growth
Help athletes prepare or recover from an exercise session
