Description

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.

IASTM Practitioner Certification explores the fundamentals of modern IASTM techniques through a full day of interactive labs. Learn how to combine IASTM and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that are revolutionizing rehab. Practice treatments you can use the next day for fascial restrictions, ROM, scarring, and more.
