Course Description

Prior to the live course, attendees will participate in a 2-hour online course covering the research and fundamentals of IASTM technique. The course includes watching 2 videos and taking a short quiz. Attendees must obtain a 75% or higher on the quiz in order to pass the online portion of the course.

This 8-hour course covers the basic skills necessary and to safely begin Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) techniques. In this introductory skills acquisition course, participants will receive hands-on instruction in the proper use of IASTM through a lab-focused teaching format. The course will address proper instrument selection to address body contours and reach target tissues. At the end of the course, attendees will take a 1-hour exam for a certification in Level I: IASTM Fundamentals. A passing score of 75% is required to pass the course. Participants may take the exam multiple times to obtain that score.
