In 2005 I experienced frozen wrist. At the time, my career was in Sonography and I was running a high demand patient schedule. One day, my wrist literally froze and I could not move my hand for several days. From 2005-2017 I had chronic wrist issues, tingling in my fingers, experienced pain each day in my job and was limited in many sports I love: bowling, rock climbing, acroyoga, and cycling.

Fast forward to 2017…my bff was telling me about her results with Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) on her shoulder, post car wreck and I became very interested in this therapy and what it could do for me. In less than 6 treatments, less than 10 days between each treatment, my wrists have been healed now 5 months strong!

I went on a mission, to learn this therapy, to help everyone I meet! And so far, the results have been absolutely amazing!

IASTM is a manual therapy treatment technique that utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to assist in detecting and treating areas exhibiting scar tissue, soft tissue restriction, adhesions, chronic inflammation, and even stagnant lymph.

IASTM is a great treatment therapy for anyone: athletes wanting to improve sports performance and heal from past injuries, repetitive motion pain related to sitting at a desk all day, to healthcare professionals in direct patient care.

A soft-tissue injury involves damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and/or fascia somewhere in the body. Common soft-tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, blow to the body resulting in a contusion (ruptured blood vessels/bruising), or overuse of a particular body part. Soft tissue injuries can result in pain, swelling, bruising and loss of function. Adhesions within the soft tissue may develop as a result of repeated strain, surgery, immobilization or other mechanisms including repetitive motion injuries.

Four Wellness is RockBlade Certified and offers IASTM as a stand alone service or incorporated into deep tissue massage sessions, lymphatic drainage massage, dedicated myofascial release, and a perfect addition with cupping therapy.

CBD Clinic ointment Level 1 or 3 will be used in conjunction with Rock Blade blading therapy.
