Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a non-invasive treatment technique. It employs the use of specially designed instruments to facilitate the healing of soft tissue, smooth out adhesions and abnormalities, improve range of motion, and decrease pain. A proper IASTM treatment can provide immediate relief in many cases. IASTM therapy is rapidly growing in popularity due to its ability to treat a multitude of conditions.
When applied correctly KT tape lifts the skin, decompressing the layers of fascia, allowing for greater movement of lymphatic fluid and transportation of white blood cells throughout the body. Which removes waste products, cellular debris, and bacteria. By taking the pressure off, this treatment is great for swollen or injured muscles and/or joints.
Is a therapy technique where blockage of blood in an area of the body is deliberately made, so that resurgence of local blood flow will occur upon release. The compression of the joint allows it to “sit” in it’s natural position, so that the therapist can manually manipulate and free up the joint that is being treated.
