Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) could integrate into your patient/athlete care. You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utilizing IASTM. Not anymore.

The term IASTM or "Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation" is commonly paired with the image of steel tools and deep tissue work that can cause redness and bruising on the skin. FMT IASTM certification courses introduce the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement with gentle soft tissue techniques. Some of the tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don't need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes. There are many forms of 'instruments or tools' that can assist your manual therapy skills and save your hands! You do't have to buy an expensive set of tools and attend a class that locks you into one way of utilizing IASTM on your patients or athletes.

FMT IASTM Certification courses are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy AND you get to keep the tools you use in the class.

FMT IASTM Certifications are intended for health care professionals, therapists and fitness professionals with all levels of experience with soft tissue techniques. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers - depending on location and class type. FMT Certified professionals receive an additional 10% discount on purchases after taking a class. 

FMT Blades - IASTM Certification

FMT Blades introduces the concept of movement therapy and performane enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The FMT Blades will review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve patient outcomes. The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a coprehensive approach to patient care, workshop and hands-on environment. This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with soft tissue techniques.

FMT Blades Advanced - IASTM Certification

FMT Blades Advanced introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding and neuro-sensory pain* modulation via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don't need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes. The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered, along with a review of the concept of interlayer connective tissue gliding using a rubber sleeve for added tissue traction. FMT Blades Advanced also addresses pain* modulation via specific mechano-reception stimulation using the novel hair comb attachment. This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with a more advanced understanding of soft tissue techniques.
