FASCIQ® IASTM Tools (Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization tools) are made of high-quality surgical stainless steel AISA 304 (1.403) and are used by the professional therapist for loosening fascial structures. They mobilize the fascial soft tissue.
Stainless steel is the most suitable material for IASTM Tools because it resonates. Information provided by the tissue about agitated structures can be felt by the therapist through the tool. The therapist scans the condition of the tissue by stroking the skin with the tool. In that way, he or she can feel where blockages are present that need to be treated. By stroking the skin with the tools, you can not only detect superficial adhesions, but also irregularities that are located deep underneath the skin. The feeling can be compared to stroking sand.
Many therapists use their fingers to apply pressure to the tissue. This is why joint wear and strains are a common complaint among therapists. By using FASCIQ® Tools, the treatment becomes much less physically taxing for the therapist.
