IASTM - Graston Technique

Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston Technique  is successful in treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post- surgical. Using unique handheld instruments with a specialized form of massage, we identify areas of restriction and break up the scar tissue.

Graston Technique therapy will not only accelerate your rehabilitation but you’ll be able to continue working, running, lifting, swimming, training.

How does Graston Technique work

Muscles are comprised of different fibers, and as fibers become tight, they build up toxins. This technique stretches and relaxes muscle tissues, which helps increase blood flow and restore movement patterns in injured tissues.

Goals of this therapy are to create a better healing environment for the soft tissue. The Graston technique has been known to foster more efficient recovery, decrease need for anti-inflammatory medication and resolve chronic conditions.
