What is IASTM?

Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization is know by many names: Graston, Guasha, Scraping and FAKTR. Whether you are in acute or chronic pain, IASTM can help to relieve it.

IASTM is designed to facilitate soft-tissue injury recovery. The treatment works on “scar tissue” or adhesions in the muscle and fascia to eliminate pain and restore range of motion. These results allow faster rehabilitation and restoration of normal function. In athletes, IASTM also reduces the time taken to return to sport!

Dr. Eric Phillips specializes in utilizing IASTM, particularly FAKTR (functional and kinetic soft-tissue.) which couples specific movements of provocation with IASTM to help you recover even quicker.
