INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MOBILIZATION
IASTM uses specifically designed stainless steel instruments to identify and treat areas of soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Instruments are designed with specific edges, allowing for control over the invasiveness of the treatment. As the edge encounters adhesions within the tissue, it catches and pulls on them causing them to separate under tension.
Covid Safe Practices
We have obtained all of the required PPE for practice and are set to reopen for treatment on
May 19th. Existing Patients: your therapist has maintained a request for treatment list and will contact those patients first.
There are Covid-19 related forms provided on our website in the FORMS section, which you may print and fill out in advance (in order to reduce contact transmission in the office).
Upon arrival for your scheduled treatment:
Please wait in your vehicle and you will be texted when it’s time to come up—unless you have mobility issues, in which case you may wait in the main lobby. You can find your RMT's cell number here.

This patient volunteered to share a video of their Electroacupuncture session: You can see how the muscle contraction is strong in some areas but weaker in others. MSEA can help to regulate & restore motor nerve response, providing better muscle strength & support of the spine & joints. It flushes calcium buildup out of tight (contracted) muscles by rapidly engaging calcium pumps within the muscle tissue. And, electrical stimulus causes the release of your body's own pain killers (endogenous opioids).
The end result? You can feel looser, have reduced pain and better muscle recruitment & range of motion.
Oh, and most people sleep MUCH better, too!
