Townsville Massage Tools (IASTM) Course June 9

$290.00

Stainless steel tools enable you to assess the tissue in a different way, as well as being great self-care: prevent your hands fatiguing and being prone to injury yourself.

Attend the RockBlades full day course and 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.

The stainless steel RockBlades will last a lifetime! 

Course Outline:

  1. Introduction to IASTM and the RockTape philosophy
  2. “Driver’s Education”- using the various tool edges and grips
  3. Exploring treatment variables – rate and depth
  4. Using the Massage Tools for neurosensory modulation and influencing muscle function
  5. Using the Massage Tools for pain presentations
  6. Using the Massage Tools for “shearing” and treating nerve entrapments
  7. Examples of use for commonly treated areas of the body

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.
