Ascension Biosystems is a company devoted to evolving and elevating our current evidence-based instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) instruments and techniques that clinicians use to effectively treat scar tissue, fascial restrictions, and range of motion restrictions.
Our proprietary instruments and protocol use special surgical grade stainless steel instrument designs based on current research and advanced treatment techniques. When we use these instruments with the appropriate training, we are able to better assess and effectively treat patients.
We recognize that Ascension Biosystems was not the first to start this practice and in fact, it is thought to be thousands of years old. However, Ascension Biosystems is the first to make a significate evolution of the instruments and protocol of IASTM in the manual therapy industry. We have compiled thousands of hours of clinical experience and research from the areas of allopathic medicine, osteopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, materials science, optical physics, and mechanical, electrical, and biomedical engineering. We are a company created on the premise that adaptation and evolution of manual medicine is a requirement, not because the previous information and instruments were wrong, but because we can make it work better.
