Instrument Assisted Soft
Tissue Mobilisation

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM9) is an innovative range of tool which enables clinicians to specifically locate and treat soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage blood supply and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration.
