Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) can benefit your practice, save your hands, improve outcomes and prolong your career.

In this introductory Seminar, we discuss the definition of IASTM, MSK pain best practices, soft tissue healing principles, review of the literature and application in practice.

Learn in a fun, interactive environment where you can try different instruments and tools to make your treatments easier and more effective. Anatomy, Assessment, Action.

Evidence-informed content on pain science, anatomy, physiology, tissue-specific assessment, pain referral patterns, injury healing, multidisciplinary person-centered best-practices, and treatment options. Including manual therapy, biopsychosocial influences/contextual factors, language/terminology modification to influence outcomes and case studies.

Stop with cookie cutter techniques and start critical thinking and application. See how IASTM is an extension of your body that will give you renewed confidence in skills to use in practice. Save your hands.
