When therapists use Muscle scraping tools (also known as IASTM Tools), the treatment becomes much less physically taxing. Many therapists use their fingers to apply pressure to the tissue. This is why joint wear and strains are a common complaint among therapists. But what are they good for, exactly? Here’s 5 benefits you did not know yet muscle scraping tools can have.

How to use FASCIQ® Muscle scraping tools

5 Key Benefits of Muscle Scraping Tools

  1. Improved Muscle Recovery

    Muscle scraping tools promote muscle recovery by breaking up adhesions and scar tissue that can form in muscles after intense exercise. By reducing this tissue, blood flow and lymphatic drainage are improved, which leads to a faster recovery time and reduced soreness and stiffness.

  2. Increased Range of Motion

    By releasing tension in the muscles and fascia, muscle scraping tools can help to improve mobility and flexibility, leading to an increased range of motion. This can be particularly beneficial for athletes who need to maintain a full range of motion in order to perform at their best.

  3. Enhanced Athletic Performance

    When muscles are functioning optimally, athletic performance is improved. By using muscle scraping tools to release trigger points and reduce muscle tension, athletes can improve their muscle function, leading to better performance during workouts and competitions.

  4. Pain Relief

    Muscle scraping tools can be used to alleviate pain and discomfort in muscles and joints. By releasing trigger points and reducing inflammation, muscle scraping tools can provide relief from chronic pain conditions such as tendinitis or arthritis.

  5. Stress Relief

    The therapeutic massage experience provided by muscle scraping tools can be incredibly relaxing, helping to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Using muscle scraping tools can be a great way to wind down after a long day or intense workout, and can help promote overall well-being.

Muscle scraping versus traditional gua sha scraping

While muscle scraping tools are often compared to traditional gua sha scraping, there are some key differences between the two. While both techniques involve applying pressure to the skin and underlying tissues, gua sha involves using a flat tool to scrape the skin, while muscle scraping tools come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used in different ways. Additionally, muscle scraping tools typically offer greater control and precision, allowing for targeted treatment of specific muscles and areas of the body.
