The overview of participating in this program
How is Astym different?
Astym treatment is different in goals and application from the Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) techniques. IASTM uses tools in an attempt to mechanically break apart tissue, whereas Astym therapy’s aim is to engage the regenerative mechanisms of the body to repair damaged tissue and resorb scar tissue.
How long does treatment take?
On average, an Astym treatment session is around 15-30 minutes depending on your injury or condition. Most conditions resolve after 4-5 weeks of treatment and therapy.
Does Astym break up scar tissue?
Astym treatment focuses on activating the regenerative mechanisms of the body by using scientifically developed protocols to engage the body to resorb problematic scar tissue and stimulate healing of soft tissues.
