Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation

instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization

Dubai, UAE- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a modern evolution from a Traditional Chinese medicine called Gua Sha, where Jade stones were used to treat the sick. Now clinicians use a hard tool to locate and treat soft tissue dysfunction, restrictions, and scar tissue. This is done by scrapping, scanning or massaging the skin with an IASTM tool. Tools are normally made from Buffalo horn or stainless steel, they are convex/concave shaped with rounded edges.

The instruments break down facial restrictions between the layers of muscle, fascia, and skin. This improves the ability of the tissue to slide over one another. Less friction between layers of tissue drastically improves the movement quality and reduces any related movement pain.

IASTM has grown rapidly in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while being non-invasive for patients.

What conditions and injuries can IASTM treat?

People with movement limitations or pain during movements, chronic injury pain, sports injuries, issues with muscle recruitment. People suffering from conditions such as:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Post-surgical/trauma scars
  • Tendinitis
  • Myofascial pain
  • Chronic joint swelling
  • Muscle strains
  • Back and neck pain
  • Joint sprains
