Attend the RockBlades half day course for the chance to learn how instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) could be integrated into your patient care. The RockBlades course presents an alternate model for IASTM work – what we define as “Instrument Assisted Neuro Sensory Modulation” or IANSM.
This draws from current thinking of the way in which fascia behaves and the influence that manual therapy has on these tissues, as well as the latest pain science.
The RockBlades approach is typically very gentle, and the use of instruments can allow the practitioner to assess and “feel” the patient tissue in a different way. Participants new to the use of tools are always surprised at the level of tissue information that can be felt through the tools.
1. Introduction to IASTM and the RockBlades philosophy
2. Treatment variables to consider
3. Using fascia as a guide
4. Examples of commonly treated areas
As is the case with all our courses, the RockBlades course is highly practical. Most participants will be confident to use the RockBlades with their patients immediately on returning to the clinic
