IASTM is the use of tools or instruments to mobilize and re-shape the soft tissue.  As the stroking of the skin occurs, the tissue begins to warm and the cellular matrix transforms from the jelly like form to a liquid form; therefore, the fascia becomes malleable.  With this flexibility present pain and scaring is reduced, soft tissue fibers can be aligned, and function & mobility is increased.

Guasha tools have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.  Graston® has been the leader in the Western development of IASTM.  Now the technique is expanding with choices, education, and a variety of tools.
