iastmexplained
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM) is a simple, non-invasive form of manual therapy to manipulate or mobilise soft tissue structures of the human body. IASTM is becoming increasingly popular these days among both practitioners and patients alike due to its remarkable safety and efficacy profile. The therapy is nonaggressive, yet effective, and can be applied either alone or in conjunction with supplementary exercises and additional modalities.

The procedure uses instruments to mechanically stimulate soft tissue structures to relieve musculoskeletal pain and discomfort and improve overall mobility and function. In other words, IASTM is a common term that describes the use of a range of ergonomically designed tools to enable clinicians to detect and treat soft tissue pain, injury, and dysfunction.

The complete soft-tissue tool set

arco is a complete system of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation, or IASTM for short, and is a combination of fascial and neuro-muscular release techniques using the arco2 tool and bar.

The arco tools have been designed so that they are not only effective but also comfortable to use by an experienced practitioner and by patients. They boast fascial and Ischaemic /neuro-muscular release edges to treat patients effectively.

The arco tools are investment cast in 316 surgical grade stainless steel and hand finished to a high polish. They are robust and give the practitioner the desired ‘feel’ that is needed from assessment to treatment.
