Description

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to integrate Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) into your patient care. You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utilizing IASTM.

Not anymore.

This hands-on certification webcast equips you with all the skills you’ll need to begin using IASTM with patients across the continuum of care – without spending thousands on equipment.

Explore the fundamentals of modern IASTM techniques, and learn how to combine IASTM and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that are revolutionizing rehab. Discover cutting-edge treatments that integrate the latest neuroscience research, and take home highly effective clinical applications of IASTMs to improve function and performance with your patients. Instructed by industry-leading clinicians, hands-on labs throughout the program will show you how to get impressive results without aggressive techniques – your patients (and your hands) will thank you!
