Soft tissue mobilization therapy

What is Soft tissue mobilization therapy?
It is an instrument assisted form of soft tissue mobilization that helps break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions.

Graston-TherapySoft tissue mobilization therapy is done by massaging/scraping the skin gently with the instruments, which stretches out the connective tissue and rearranges the structure of the soft tissues being treated. These specialized handheld instruments are made of medical grade stainless steel.

Graston-toolsWhat to Expect?
Treatment time is generally 30-60 seconds per fascial restriction, and a typical session lasts 10-15 minutes. It is common to experience some form of discomfort during treatment. After treatment you may become sore, or bruised. The skin generally turns red over the treated area. It is suggested to ice 15- 20 minutes after treatment to ease the discomfort. Please wear comfortable and non-restricted clothing to this session.
