Muscle Scraping

Muscle scraping, also known as instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), involves using specially designed tools to apply pressure and friction to the skin’s surface, helping break up scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions. This technique aims to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and promote tissue healing and regeneration.

How Does Muscle Scraping Work?

  1. Preparation: The therapist assesses the area to be treated and may apply a lubricant, such as massage oil or lotion, to reduce friction between the skin and the tool.

  2. Application of the Tool: The therapist holds the tool at a specific angle and applies pressure to the skin surface over the affected area. The tool is typically moved in a scraping or stroking motion along the muscle fibers or connective tissue.

  3. Friction and Pressure: As the tool is moved across the skin, it creates friction and pressure, which can help break up adhesions (scar tissue), release muscle tension, and improve blood flow to the area.

  4. Feedback and Adjustment: The therapist adjusts the pressure and angle of the tool based on feedback from the patient and their assessment of the tissue response.

  5. Repetition and Progression: The scraping technique may be repeated multiple times during a session, focusing on different areas of the body as needed. Over time, as the tissue responds and heals, the intensity and frequency of treatment may be adjusted.
