According to PHYSIOPEDIA “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is said to be a modern evolution from Traditional Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha.However Gua Sha was not used to treat Musculoskeletal conditions but was traditionally applied along meridiens to move the bad chi out through the skin. IASTM is a is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive,with its own indications and limitations.”
However Physiopedia although correct is incorrect to ascribe the use of tools in therapy exclusively to traditional Chinese Medicine! Using tools in medical therapy is first recorded in the classics of Indian and Thai Ayurveda … the Sushruta Samhita recorded Ayuvedic Physician using a great variety of instruments to supplement the use of their bare hands over four thousand years ago.
In our indigenous traditional way of thinking we make no defined distinction separating the body into physical and or energetic quanta. We see no clear distinction at all. Fascial Planes= Energy Lines and vise versa. Additionally in the western variations there is little or no emphasis on the traditional Hammer and Probe type of technique which is consider vital in our traditional medicine.
This treatment strategy and protocol is useful for therapist who are seeking to use their hands less as the primary tools or expression of their healing arts… Through the use of the various instruments one may do entire sessions and treatments Hands Free!
A derivative of the traditional oriental techniques becoming popular in western medical physiopathy are called “Graston®, Fascial Abrasion Technique® etc.”
In this course we introduce and explain all of the traditional tools used in TAELR™ practice and with live demonstration practice exchanges building application competencies. Students through lecture and in-class learning environment improve understanding of indications, contraindications and clinical applications for common conditions and issues. Additionally, students are introduced to the protocol as a form of Complimentary and Integrative Medicine Practice in the context of a modern Religious Therapeutic modality suitable for ministers of traditional medicine practice.
