RockBlades are an IASTM which means instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. A clinician uses a tool to release disorders within the soft tissue (muscles, fascia, connective tissue, etc) which cause pain.
Trauma or stress cause our soft tissue to become restricted. These restrictions are what people commonly refer to as “knots.” These knots are restrictions in the soft tissue. When a knot appears, it usually causes our bodies to be out of alignment. This misalignment is usually what causes pain.
A clinician then uses the RockBlade to release these knots and to restore proper movement and blood flow to the soft tissues which in turn alleviates pain.
