Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to use IASTM. You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of applying Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization.

Not anymore. Taught by industry-leading experts in movement assessment and therapy, these hands-on certification programs equip you with all the skills you’ll need to begin using IASTM with patients tomorrow -- without spending thousands on equipment.

Advanced IASTM Practitioner Certification builds on the fundamentals with innovative applications that integrate the latest neuroscience research. Master cutting-edge treatments for pain, tunnel syndromes, nerve entrapments, neuropathies, tendonitis, and other common conditions.
