Get Relief from Pain
Astym is a scientifically-based, non-invasive treatment that is designed to regenerate healthy soft tissues, such as muscles, ligaments and tendons. This therapeutic treatment targets thickened soft tissue, scar tissue and degeneration that may develop due to overuse, trauma or surgery.
The ultimate goal is to restore movement and reduce pain by getting to the source of the problem rather than simply relieving symptoms. Our Astym-certified clinician will glide special plastic instruments over the skin and muscles in the affected area. The use of these special instruments allow clinicians to contact, assess and treat soft tissue fibrosis in a way their hands cannot; allowing a deeper assessment of the soft tissue layers with less wear and tear on their hands.
