The goal of instrumented STMs, or IASTM, is clear and simple: to mechanically break apart adhesions.

Elite runners alternate between intensive physical training and recovery to improve performance. However, many runners fail to maintain a balance between intensity of training and appropriate recovery, resulting in a breakdown of tissue reparative mechanisms which eventually leads to overuse injuries.

The difference is that acute, short-term tendonitis is thought to be caused by inflammation, which is an active immune response of the body...

Scientific studies have shown an increase in fibroblast recruitment and fibroblast activation with Astym treatment, which reveal the body’s underlying physiological response to Astym. These studies highlight the regenerative mechanism of Astym treatment and help us understand how Astym treatment results in the regeneration of...
