HawkGrips are a great way of saving our hands from the abnormal wear and tear required when performing hands-on therapies related to fascial dysfunction and breaking up adhesions. The use of HawkGrips has been a great adjunct to my rehabilitation of our players.”

What is IASTM?

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is an advanced form of myofascial mobilization — similar to deep-tissue massage. It is primarily used to detect and release scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions. This technique enables a clinician to locate adhesions and restrictions in the soft tissue through the vibrations or undulations of the instruments. Once these areas have been identified, clinicians may then utilize the instruments to restore optimal function.

Who can be treated with HawkGrips?

Anyone! HawkGrips are an excellent modality not only for treating injuries and chronic conditions, but also for preventive maintenance, recovery after a workout, and increasing range of motion in healthy patients. They are safe for use with the general population, as well as many pediatric and geriatric patients. Your doctor or clinician can tell you if IASTM would be an appropriate choice for you as an individual.
