AISTM- Tecnica Gavilan / Graston

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) involves the use of specifically designed tools, typically made of stainless steel, that enable the practitioner to efficiently locate and treat soft-tissue dysfunction. The use of these tools enables the practitioner to create a controlled inflammatory process, which will allow the tissue to begin the healing process, breaking down the scar tissue/adhesions in the troubled area, and accelerate the recovery process.
