Augmented Soft Tissue Massage (ASTYM)

Astym treatment is safe and effective: It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments available. It is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Physicians have confidence in Astym therapy and regularly prescribe it specifically for their patients, advising them to confirm a clinician is Astym-certified by checking the listing under Find a Provider at www.astym.com

It really fixes the problem: Astym therapy doesn’t just treat the symptoms     or hide a problem with a temporary solution. Instead, the Astym process stimulates the body to regenerate and remodel tissues. Response rates to Astym therapy are high, and most patients experience improvement quickly.

Research: Astym therapy was researched and developed by a skilled team of medical professionals, scientists, universities, and large hospital systems. It is perhaps the only therapy approach that was produced through rigorous scientific development: from theory through basic science investigation to clinical study and practice.

Astym® treatment safely and effectively stimulates scar tissue to be resorbed by the body and regenerates damaged soft tissues. It is highly effective in chronic conditions such as plantar fasciopathy, lateral epicondylopathy, chronic hamstring or groin injuries, tendinopathies and post-traumatic/post-surgical scarring – even when nothing else seems to work. It is also very effective on sprains, strains, and speeds recovery in acute and sub-acute soft tissue injuries.
