We are thrilled to offer Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage at our Midtown East and Rockefeller Center offices. 

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage is a manual therapy technique that directly effects irregular muscle and connective tissue that limits a person’s motion and strength as they move through their daily lives. With the instruments the therapist can use different grades of pressure and angles to promote a different outcome in the body. The tools can help control pain, decrease tightness, increase muscle activation, break up scar tissue, and increase neuromuscular coordination. Any patient could benefit from this treatment. The physical therapist will evaluate the patient for any restrictions or deficits, and they can target their treatments to help make improvements. Using the tools helps the physical therapist provide the body with the sensory information to allow the brain to make better connections with the muscles to work more efficiently.
