Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a manual therapy technique used to address soft tissue dysfunction and musculoskeletal injuries. During IASTM, specialized instruments are used to apply controlled pressure and friction over the skin to detect and treat areas of scar tissue, adhesions, or fascial restrictions. By breaking down these adhesions and stimulating tissue repair, IASTM aims to improve tissue mobility, reduce pain, and enhance range of motion. This technique is often used in conjunction with other therapies, such as exercise and stretching, to optimize treatment outcomes for conditions like tendinitis, muscle strains, and joint dysfunction.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a manual therapy technique used to treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction by targeting the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones, and organs. During myofascial release, therapists apply gentle pressure and sustained stretching to the fascia to release tension, break up adhesions, and restore mobility. This technique aims to alleviate pain, improve range of motion, and enhance overall function by addressing restrictions within the fascial network. Myofascial release is often used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for conditions such as muscle tightness, trigger points, and postural imbalances.


Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which can promote blood flow, relieve muscle tension, and reduce inflammation. Cupping is often used to treat musculoskeletal pain, such as back and neck pain. 


Kinesiology Tape/K-Tape is a flexible, elastic tape that is used to provide support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting motion. It is made of cotton fibers with an adhesive backing that is activated by body heat. Kinesiology tape is applied directly to the skin over muscles and joints to help alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and improve range of motion. It works by lifting the skin slightly, which can increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, leading to faster recovery and enhanced performance. Kinesiology tape is commonly used by athletes and individuals with musculoskeletal injuries or conditions, and it can be worn during physical activity or throughout daily activities.
