Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM)

Rock Blades Course Exeter (IASTM)

CrossFit Pi 26, Woodbury Business Park,  Woodbury EX5 1AY

Saturday 14th March 2020


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.
