Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, or IASTM, enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat
individuals with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is a modern evolution from Traditional
Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha. IASTM is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its
effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive.

IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions,
encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic
inflammation, or degeneration.
