At Custom Bodies and Massage, we are pleased to offer our patients the benefits of IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization).

IASTM enables us to efficiently locate and treat individuals  with soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM uses specially designed instruments intended to locate and manipulate soft tissue. These instruments provide our therapists with a mechanical advantage, thus preventing over-use to the hands.

IASTM instruments make it easier to detect and treat fascial dysfunction. They magnify the abnormalities (scars, restrictions and adhesion’s) in the fascia and make it easier to locate the area to treat. Using a tool focuses the force through an area smaller than your finger with less friction. This allows a more efficient treatment.
