Instrumented Assisted Massage / Fascial Release

The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. It is one of a number of manual therapy approaches that uses instruments with a specialized form of massage/scraping the skin gently.


The therapy is designed to help the practitioner identify areas of restriction and attempt to break up scar tissue.


The general goals of the therapy are to reduce the patient’s pain and increase function through a combination of:


  • Breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft tissue e.g. a strained muscle or a pulled ligament, tendon, or fascia.


  • Reducing restrictions by stretching connective tissue in an attempt to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue being treated (e.g. muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments).


  • Promoting a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.
