IASTM is a simple non-invasive treatment that is aimed to manipulate and mobilise the soft tissue of the body.
The concept is based on the same concept of Deep Tissue Massage by increasing blood flow to the area. This provides the area with the body’s own self maintenance and repair mechanisms causing it to start to self-heal.
This gentle treatment give the therapist greater feedback as to what is happening under the skin, deeper specific penetration, more accurate application. This creates faster tissue healing and repair restoring tissue balance, reduction in pressure on joints, improved motion, and increase in body fluid mobilisation.
