About the IASTM Tools
FASCIQ® IASTM Tools (Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization tools) are made of high-quality surgical stainless steel AISA 304 (1.403) and are used by the professional therapist for loosening fascial structures. They mobilize the fascial soft tissue.
Stainless steel is the most suitable material for IASTM Tools because it resonates. Information provided by the tissue about agitated structures can be felt by the therapist through the tool. The therapist scans the condition of the tissue by stroking the skin with the tool. In that way, he or she can feel where blockages are present that need to be treated. By stroking the skin with the tools, you can not only detect superficial adhesions, but also irregularities that are located deep underneath the skin. The feeling can be compared to stroking sand.
Many therapists use their fingers to apply pressure to the tissue. This is why joint wear and strains are a common complaint among therapists. By using FASCIQ® Tools, the treatment becomes much less physically taxing for the therapist.
FASCIQ® IASTM TOOLS STIMULATE:
- A flexible and well-maintained, healthy fascial network.
- Improved tissue perfusion.
- Improved range of motion.
- Mobilization of the soft tissue.
- Loosening of adhesions in the connective tissue.
- Treatment of trigger points.
The FASCIQ® IASTM Tools consist of a number of separate IASTM instruments that look different with various finished sides. In addition to separate instruments, FASCIQ® also offers two complete sets with various tools. All IASTM Tools are packed in a sturdy, beautiful storage bag.Usually, each tool has multiple shapes and finished edges to increase its employability. The smaller tools are generally used for the treatment of smaller parts of the body, smaller strokes and reaching superficial tissue structures. The larger and heavier tools are used to reach deeper and are suitable for the treatment of larger parts of the body.
