Muscle Scraping, or instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), can help promote tissue healing, improve motion, and help reduce pain. This form of scraping therapy evolved from the traditional Chinese medicine healing technique known as Gua sha.

With traditional IASTM, a manual tool is used to help get deeper into the tissue for treatment. These scraping therapy tools are made of stainless steel, stone, plastic, or other materials. In this video, I’m using the Achedaway Heated Scraper. It combines a scraping tool with heat as an added benefit. This combination allows for two techniques to be combined into one treatment.
