What is IASTM?


IASTM uses a hard edge instrument (FS-ONE tool) to add shearing stress to soft tissue in order to enhance the body's healing response. The ability to focus a technical force along a small contact surface to your patient's target tissue, and do so with a relatively high level of comfort for both the patient and treating therapist is one of the best features of this technique. Great for chronic soft tissue injuries, including rotator cuff, achillies & musculotendinous sites as well as scars.
