Essential Self-Paced Training

Graston Technique (GT) therapy is an advanced form of instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), which incorporates the use of six specially designed stainless steel instruments. GT therapy enables clinicians to effectively treat the adverse effects of scar tissue and fascial restrictions as well as improve and maintain optimal range of motion. The purpose of this basic training is to introduce students and clinicians to GT therapy, its clinical applications, physiological effects/benefits, and potential contraindication.

Training materials, including Graston instruments, will be shipped to your home or office upon enrollment, providing you with all the tools you need for a successful learning experience. 60-day access will be granted to complete the online training.
