What is Astym?

Astym (A’-stim) stands for “a stimulation” of the body’s healing response. This results in the remodeling or reabsorption of scar tissue and regeneration of degenerated tendons.   The approach is a non-invasive therapy that works fast and is consistent with no medication, no needles and no surgery.

The Astym process is specific and has proven effective through documented, consistent, desirable outcomes – results physicians and patients have come to expect and trust. Developed by a research team of physicians, physical therapists, and scientists, this protocol-driven system yields long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed. Only Astym-certified clinicians may perform the Astym treatment.
