Scraping or IASTM Benefits

So, if you know me, you know that I love everything Thai Massage. You also, may have heard me mention something about scraping therapy. Initially people hear the term scraping and they cringe. Let's talk about why it's so amazing and why it might be right for you. 

 

Scraping also known as IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a technique that has been around for thousands of years and is just now having a resurgence within the massage and physical therapy world for it's astounding benefits and quick results. 

So what is Scraping or IASTM? During a scraping/IASTM treatment a tool is pulled across the tissue, muscle and ligaments to reduce adhesions & trigger points, increase circulation, loosen tight muscles, increase range of motion and reduce pain. Yes, it does all that! Why wouldn't I love it and perhaps you might too. 

 

During scraping/IASTM the surface of the skin begins to get pink or redden. This effect is a result of an increase in circulation which nourishes the tissue by promoting tissue regeneration and healing.

 

If you're experiencing chronic pain and tightness, then Scraping/IASTM might be right for you. You can book a 30 min scraping session at Divine Spark to try it out and we also offer 60 min Scraping/IASTM that also include cupping therapy.
