RockBlades | Rockblading | IASTM | Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Rockblading is a form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) that can be utilized as manual therpay technique during treatment sessions. The principles behind the use of RockBlading emphasizes the role of the body's proprioceptive receptors within the skin, fascia, and muscle to encourage appropriate neuromuscular responses.

There are a variety of tools and techniques available for a certified clinician to use on a case-by-case basis with patient or clients, whether the goalie to reduce tissue tension, bring awareness to underachieve muscles, or relax overactive muscle. IASTM is used as part of a comprehensive, therapeutic plan of care to promote improved movement patterns that will assist with improving functional mobility in everyday life.
