Soft Tissue Techniques

Targeting soft tissue restrictions with instrument assisted techniques to enhance mobility and pliability

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) represents a soft tissue approach that harnesses both compressive techniques (such as scraping and nerve flossing) and decompressive methods (like cupping and tapping) to rejuvenate soft tissue functionality. The human body's soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, nerves, and various connective structures, play a pivotal role in performance and recovery. When these tissues become restrictive, they can severely hinder range of motion and often lead to discomfort.

IASTM techniques excel at breaking down stubborn tissue adhesions, reigniting blood flow to injured areas, stimulating cellular activity, and promoting an essential inflammatory healing response. This transformative approach aims to restore the natural functionality of soft tissues. By meticulously breaking down tissue barriers, it creates a controlled micro-trauma within the affect soft tissue, kickstarting a cascade of healing processes. This, in turn, results in profound remodelling of the impacted soft tissue structures, setting the stage for enhanced recovery and optimal performance.
