ASTYM – Regenerative Soft Tissue Therapy
Did you know that ALL of our therapists are ASTYM certified? Each therapist has attended a course to learn the specific techniques to effectively treat: joint and muscle stiffness, chronic tendinopathy, pain and stiffness associated with degenerative conditions, among many other symptoms.
Astym is soft tissue therapy that focuses on previous scarring, fibrosis, and degeneration in many tissues. According to Astym’s website, it “successfully restores movement and eliminates pain, even when other approaches have failed.” Astym is scientifically based, supported by research, and keeps patients active (in activities, work, and/or sports) during treatment.
