Course Description:

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to integrate Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) into your patient care. You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utilizing IASTM.

Not anymore.

This hands-on certification program equips you with all the skills you’ll need to begin using IASTM with patients across the continuum of care – without spending thousands on equipment. Explore the fundamentals of modern IASTM techniques, and learn how to combine IASTM and functional movement to produce the kinds of active treatment strategies that are revolutionizing rehab. Discover cutting-edge treatments that integrate the latest neuroscience research, and take home highly effective clinical applications of IASTM to improve function and performance with your patients. Instructed by industry-leading clinicians, hands-on labs throughout the program will show you how to get impressive results without aggressive techniques – your patients (and your hands) will thank you!
Objectives:

  1. Review the principles and physiological/neurological effects of Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).
  2. Demonstrate movement screening techniques to identify faulty motor patterns.
  3. Demonstrate fundamental IASTM treatment techniques and comprehensive strategies for improving function and performance.
  4. Practice fundamental IASTM techniques in conjunction with kinesiology taping, manual therapy, and functional movement.
  5. Integrate advanced strategies for preventing bruising, redness, and hand fatigue during IASTM treatments.
  6. Practice IASTM treatments for the upper body and lower body.
  7. Practice IASTM treatments for scar tissue and fibromyalgia.
  8. Develop IASTM applications based on your assessment/treatment approach and the individual needs of your patient.

JESSICA HILL, PT, DPT, MSPT, CSCS

Jessica Hill, PT, DPT, CSCS, is a Physical Therapist who received her BA in Biology and Psychology at Dartmouth College. She completed her professional training at Simmons College where she earned her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and her clinical Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy in 2002. She is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association, certified Specialized Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) level 1 practitioner, certified Functional Movement Screen (FMS) level 1 practitioner, and a certified Functional Movement Techniques provider through RockTape. Dr. Hill has 15 years of clinical experience in general orthopedics, sports medicine, industrial rehabilitation, pre-/post-surgical care, performance enhancement, wellness training, and injury prevention. She works with patients of all ages and across all activity levels from highly sedentary people to highly active populations including national caliber/professional/semi-pro/collegiate athletes, extreme and ultra-athletes, law enforcement, and military. Dr. Hill co-founded a group of highly successful outpatient Physical Therapy practices in VT before starting a solo, concierge practice in NYC.

Dr. Hill evaluates and treats with a whole-body approach that combines knowledge and understanding of localized anatomy and function within the context of full body structure, function, and movement patterns. She works to restore compromised mobility, strength, stability, and movement patterning through a variety of manual techniques, IASTM, active modalities, progressive exercise, taping, and education. She enjoys solid rapport with her patients and clients, clinical problem-solving, and watching her patients and clients progress to the activities they need to do, want to do, and aspire to do.

Dr. Hill is a self-professed “biomechanics, kinetic chain, fascial train, feed the brain enthusiast” who never tires of learning new treatment and training techniques, perspectives, and the latest medical literature has to offer. She is an avid skier (telemark), cyclist, ice hockey player, photographer, and outdoor enthusiast. She will read anything an arm’s length away.
