IASTM is an abbreviated word to describe a type of physical therapy that we offer at Om Physio plus Nutrition. As we believe in targeting the affected area of the body with precision, therefore, to give an effective massage specialized instruments are used in place of hands. These instruments are advance enough to mimic the pressure and motion of an expert masseur but with more accuracy and stable repetitions. IASMT incline more towards being a treatment for conditions involving soft tissues such as muscles, fascia, ligaments, and tendons. This therapy can also be used to treat the conditions which do not need targeted influence of the massage but in that case only large group muscles would be involved.
