Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation CPD 2018-03-07T17:49:01+00:00

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation IASTM

One day CPD for manual and soft tissue therapists

A brand new independent one day course on instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM).

This one day CPD you will learn the science behind IASTM, how to apply instrument assisted massage techniques into your practice and add movement into your treatment.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is a type of massage technique that can be integrated in many ways into your practice. It is non invasive and adds many other benefits into your practice than just a “hand-saver”.

What are the focuses of the course?

  • How to use instrument assisted tools into your practice to maximise treatments.
  • The effects of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation on the neurological system.
  • What the current research says about IASTM and how this applies in your treatments.
  • Ways of integrating movement into your practice with IASTM to create an effective treatment for your clients.

What students say!

“Danielle is a really energetic teacher who is clearly passionate about helping others. She went above & beyond what was expected, helping everyone with any specific techniques they could use for their own specialities or practice.  I wouldn’t hesitate in other training days with Danielle.”

– Lily Turner, Soft Tissue Therapist

“I completed a day’s tool training with Danielle and absolutely loved it. Danielle is a natural teacher – warm and friendly, very good at explaining the techniques used and of course she has amazing knowledge of massage, anatomy and the tool itself. I use my tool regularly with clients now, particularly if they’re struggling with painful areas, and they seem to love it as much as I do! It gets fantastic results and is so easy to use. It was a great day’s training and a really useful technique to add to the toolbox. Highly recommended.”

– Natasha Fewtrell-Smith, Soft Tissue Therapist
