Massage Tools Course

Register Now

Attend the RockBlades full day course and learn how Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) could be integrated into your patient care.  The course presents an alternate model for IASTM work – what we define as “Instrument Assisted Neuro Sensory Modulation” or IANSM.  This draws from current research regarding the way in which fascia behaves and the influence that manual therapy has on these tissues. The RockTape approach to using Massage Tools is typically very gentle, and the use of instruments can allow the practitioner to assess and “feel” the patient tissue in a different way.  Participants new to the use of tools are always surprised at the level of tissue information that can be felt through the tools.

The RockBlades course outline is as follows:

  • Introduction to IASTM and the RockTape philosophy
  • “Driver’s Education”- using the various tool edges and grips
  • Exploring treatment variables – rate and depth
  • Using the Massage Tools for neurosensory modulation and influencing muscle function
  • Using the Massage Tools for pain presentations
  • Using the Massage Tools for “shearing” and treating nerve entrapments
  • Examples of use for commonly treated areas of the body

As is the case with all our courses, the RockBlades course is highly practical.  Most participants will be confident to use the Massage Tools with their patients immediately on returning to the clinic.

You can register just for the RockBlades course or if you know what massage tool you want you can package a set of RockBlades and or Mohawk with the course, and the massage tool will be despatched to you, and you can start trialling the massage tool right away.  Alternatively, you can attend the course and trial the different massage tools, and then after the course purchase a massage tool at the packaged prices below.  There is no obligation to purchase a Massage Tool at the completion of the course.

Sometimes it is challenging to be available when a course is conducted.  So we have recorded one of our RockBlades online interactive courses that was recently conducted via zoom.  Once you purchase the online course, you will be sent a link, and you will have one month to watch the content as many times as you like – where ever and whenever you want.
