IASTM Therapy Tools
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization IASTM tools are instruments used by therapists for fascia soft-tissue mobilization.
This Mobilization Magic IASTM tool Australia made and Designed by an Award Winning Physical Therapist.
These tools are usually operated by a professional therapist because it is not possible to use IASTM tools that are normally associated with IASTM treatment on yourself easily. The Mobilization Magic IASTM Tool allows you to mobilize yourself rather than have a therapist do it for you. Saving lots of money!
How to use these Mobilization IASTM tools?
All you have to do is lay on the MMT tool for successively longer periods of time up to 30 mins so gravity, your body weight and time releases trigger points, the fascia and connective tissue (CT) in the skin and the underlying muscle as seen in the image right. By stretching the fascia you will increase your range of motion and be able to do things you have not been able to do for years.
Muscles have a cartilaginous/fascia skeleton that runs down the core of it, seen in the diagram to the right. It is difficult to stretch this skeleton by other approaches but using this MMT tool especially in sideways stretches works very well in bending the fibres in a direction that breaks up stiffness and adhesions.
How this Mobilization tool works
This IASTM tool effectively breaks down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The introduction of sustained pressure to affected soft tissue causes the stimulation of local inflammatory response. The microtrauma that pressure causes starts a reabsorption process of fibrotic tissue or excessive scar tissue and promotes a chain of healing activities resulting in normalising the affected soft tissue. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur.
IASTM Tools stimulate:
- A flexible and well-maintained, healthy fascial network.
- Improved (soft) tissue perfusion.
- Improved range of motion.
- Mobilization of the soft tissue fascia.
- Loosening of adhesions in the connective tissue.
- Treatment of trigger points.

Q What is Fascia?
A Fascia is the glue that holds our bodies together. All the forces that our bodies experience are transmitted by the fascia, without fascia we are just a pile on bones. See Fascia Factshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArGm197_nRQ
