Our IASTM seminar has been developed by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy
IASTM introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM). The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes.
The IASTM certification will review screening, dysfunctional movement patterns, and utilising soft tissue tools to improve patient treatment. The anatomy, physiology and most importantly the neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered along with supporting research. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care.
The cost of this course includes RockBlades, Mohawk or both depending on your preference. You will be able to take these supplies home with you at the end of the course (if you already have a set of RockBlades please call the office and we can book you a place on the course without including the cost of the RockBlades).
You can watch some FREE videos and consider taking our online course as a ‘warm up’ here.

Myofascial Cupping has been around since the early 19th century – only recently has the image of purple circles on professional athlete’s backs created attention to an ancient myofascial therapy. The cups and techniques have changed over time, but the basic premise of the cups providing suction to decompress the underlying tissue remains the same.
FMT RockPods explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression with easy to use myofascial cups. RockPods are one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician and therapist to deliver superior patient and client outcomes.
