Course Description:

The days of painful techniques that lead to excessive bruising are over – welcome to the future of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).

Rather than the old aggressive mechanical model, this certification course focuses on the neurological effects of IASTM. Modern IASTM is designed to work with the patient’s neurological system to manage symptoms, motor control and biomechanics with a very safe and gentle approach.

This framework offers a dynamic assessment philosophy designed to arm clinicians and clients with an innovative approach to treatment. By incorporating a joint by joint analysis of skin, fascial anatomy, and muscles, you will be able to incorporate IASTM to:
  • Reduce pain
  • Increase mobility
  • Enhance proprioception
  • Boost performance
Instructed by industry-leading clinicians, this hands-on certification program equips you with all the skills you’ll need to begin using IASTM with the patients across the continuum of care.

Get impressive results without aggressive techniques – your patients (and your hands) will thank you!
Objectives:

  1. Discuss the myofascial sequencing model.
  2. Analyze the neuroanatomy of the fascial system.
  3. Utilize movement screening techniques to identify faulty movement patterns.
  4. Examine the current best-evidence theory and science of IASTM.
  5. Integrate assisted fascial manual therapy techniques with functional kinesiology taping to improve movement quality.
  6. Design effective plans of care that incorporate dry fascial gliding to promote improved range of motion.
