Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation
Effective treatment for soft tissue injuries
Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilisation, or IASTM, has become a generalised term to describe the use of any instrument or tool to massage, mobilise or manipulate soft-tissue structures.
I use specialised stainless steel instruments on scar tissue, adhesions or restricted fascia. This can stimulate a healing, physical or nervous system response to address these issues.
IASTM can efficiently and effectively mobilise tight soft tissues, increase restricted range of movement and treat many soft tissue injuries and chronic conditions.

IASTM in my experience compliments other techniques such as ART very well and has been shown to be effective in the treatment of:
- Lumbar strains and sprains
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Shin Splints
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Patello-femoral Disorders
- Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis
