Widely applicable and light to hold. General IASTM Tool. The “Mustache” has a flat finish on the bottom. The top has both round and upwardly slanted edges. The instrument also has a pointy side to reach deeper fascial layers. A popular choice for general use.
IASTM is short for “Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization”. FASCIQ® IASTM Tools are made of high-quality surgical SS (stainless steel) AISA 304 (1.403) and are used by the professional therapist for loosening fascial structures. They mobilize the fascial soft tissue.
Stainless Steel is the most suitable material for IASTM Tools because it resonates. Information provided by the tissue about agitated structures can be felt by the therapist through the tool. The therapist scans the condition of the tissue by stroking the skin with the tool. In that way, he or she can feel where blockages are present that need to be treated. By stroking the skin with the tools, you can not only detect superficial adhesions, but also irregularities that are located deep underneath the skin. The feeling can be compared to stroking sand.
Many therapists use their fingers to apply pressure to the tissue. This is why joint wear and strains are a common complaint among therapists. By using FASCIQ® Tools, the treatment becomes much less physically taxing for the therapist.

Fascia mainly consist of connective tissue in different forms and structures. They are located throughout the body and are interconnected. In recent years, we have learned more and more about the function of the fascial network. Good results have been achieved with a treatment directed specifically at the fasciae.
Among other things, the fascial network has an effect on:
- Movement and mobility.
- The immune system.
- The balance of various internal systems (lymphatic, digestive, hormonal and metabolism).
- The posture.
Various products are used to treat the fasciae, to bring about a loosening of the fasciae (fascia release) and to maintain a flexible fascial network (fascia treatment). Regular use of these products can prevent injuries. FASCIQ® is a carefully developed line of high-quality products for the (after) treatment of fascia
