Graston Technique

Graston Technique is the use of stainless steel tools which are specially designed to break down adhesions and restrictions in the connective tissue that result from muscular overuse, tightness and scar tissue.  They are applied to the warmed up muscles using different strokes and movements sometimes reminiscent of the Chinese Gua Sha "scraping" techniques along the pathway of muscles and fascial directions.  As these adhesions are broken down, you may experience a quick improvement in your muscle flexibility and circulation that other forms of massage may not be able to provide.
