Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) could integrate into your patient/athlete care.
You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utilizing IASTM.
FMT Blades Advanced Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) Course introduces the concept of mechanical gliding of skin, fascia and nerve. It also presents concepts of neuro-sensory pain modulation via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. IASTM tools are designed to be used with very gentle applications of force, aggressive techniques with heavy pressure are no longer required. The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue is presented, along with a review of concepts of interlayer connective tissue gliding during normal human movement.
Students will learn IASTM techniques using a rubber sleeve attachment for added tissue traction to treat gliding dysfunctions of skin, fascia and nerve. FMT Blades Advanced IASTM also introduces pain modulation techniques via use of an additional IASTM tool attachment, the neurosensory comb.
This course is intended for health professionals who have already attained a basic understanding of IASTM techniques.
