IASTM or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue that wraps every muscle and links them all together. This tissue helps link muscle together into chains of motion and provides an elastic or spring like mechanism for dynamic motion. Imagine your entire linked by a spider web like structure, where a pull on one area can affect any area, and you can begin to understand fascia.
This mechanism of energy absorption and spring like capacity are vital for the function of your body. Injury to Fascia and/or Fascial Adhesion has been linked to almost every physical pain known to us. The work by Stecco, Ida Rolf, Thomas Myer, and Karl Lewitt have shown that the fascia, in conjunction with the muscle can have far reaching effects. Our comprehensive treatment both hands on and with a Fascia Release Instrument has helped many get free of such ailments as.
