Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage (IASTM)
We are now pleased to offer IASTM using the edge tool at all our clinics.

What is IASTM?
Instrument assisted soft tissue massage is the use of a stainless steel instrument pressed on the skin to move and break down connective tissue that has got stiff and immobile. The treatment lasts minutes and is lighter that traditional massage therefore can be a less painful treatment if you find massage painful this maybe for you.
