This technique utilizes a proprietary blend to make tools that allow clinicians to feel and differentiate scarred tissue from healthy tissue through vibrations in the instrument. By preserving healthy tissue using SASTM instruments you can help achieve better outcomes.

The SASTM method

The SASTM method is a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. This method enables clinicians to effectively locate and treat areas of soft tissue dysfunction through the use of an instrument, thus preventing overuse of their hands.

Instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves. This allows the clinician to locate and treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure.

The introduction of controlled micro-trauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. The micro-trauma 'initiates healing'... the reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities, resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue, which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur.
