What is the Graston Technique?

Created in 1995 by therapists Michael Graston and David Byars, the Graston Technique is a highly effective soft tissue mobilization. The technique involves practitioners using specialized instruments made from stainless steel to remove scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial obstacles that cause pain and discomfort. It is backed by evidence and has been shown to relieve a wide range of pain and body stress, including soft tissue injuries. Many professionals use the technique to treat clients, including chiropractors, physical therapists, occupational therapists, certified massage therapists, and beyond. All Deep Massage & Wellness Clinic is fully trained, licensed, and certified to provide the technique for our clients.

NOTE: The Graston Technique is not a form of massage therapy but a technique that can be used in tandem with other treatments.

How Do You Perform the Graston Technique?

As mentioned, the technique comprises durable yet gentle stainless-steel instruments designed for mobilization. First, your massage professional will talk with you about the areas of your body that are the sources of your pain and discomfort. After identifying the sources, your therapist will select the instruments most suited to your needs and use them to relax the targeted areas, moving them in a back-and-forth motion. The technique should alleviate pain and discomfort caused by scar tissue and other restricted areas. It can be performed every one to six weeks, and standard treatments take up to a minute to complete.

How Does the Technique Differ from Deep Tissue Therapy?

If you love your deep tissue therapy and treatments, you may be skeptical about trying a new technique. Choosing Graston over deep tissue therapy is a matter of preference, but many clients use both for different purposes. Some deep tissue therapy clients have switched to Graston because they believe it better meets their pain relief needs. We recommend giving the Graston a try at least once to see if you like it. Only then will you know what the suitable method is for you. Our professionals would be happy to discuss the technique further. The differences between the Graston Technique and deep tissue therapy are:

  • Depth: The instruments used for Graston are designed in varying shapes, sizes, and contours because they work on different parts of the body. The instruments are made to relieve tension in the most hard-to-reach areas, penetrating deeper stagnant or scar tissue than a massage therapist’s hands can do.
  • Efficiency: The instruments allow massage therapists to cover more areas of the body efficiently and in a shorter amount of time. Your therapist will be able to relieve more pain in less time, which in turn saves you time, money, and energy spent scheduling numerous appointments.
  • Consistency: As the massage therapist’s hands tire, they may lose stamina, leading to uneven or inadequate pressure applied on the body. Pressure is essential to successful pain relief. The instruments enable therapists to provide even pressure throughout the body and give you an enjoyable experience from beginning to end.
  • Stamina: Though providing relief is a massage therapist’s job, the physicality of it can lead to burnout and fatigue. Graston instruments alleviate more pain with less power and effort. During your treatment, your therapist will not tire. This ensures you’ll receive the care you need from start to finish.
  • Versatility: The Graston technique is a relatively recent development and an answer to many pains, ailments, and injuries. The technique is genuinely suitable for people from all walks of life, from athletes to physical labourers and beyond. Whatever discomfort or disorder you suffer from, the Graston Technique can help to bring you relief.

Is the Graston Technique Right for Me?

The Graston Technique is an exceptional treatment because it can be used to remedy a multitude of issues ranging from minor to severe. You don’t need to have a chronic or acute injury to receive it. Even people with small soft tissue injuries can benefit from the technique. If you suffer from impaired mobility, body stiffness, or pain located throughout the body, then the Graston Technique could work for you. The technique’s deep penetration and consistency make it a favourite method of relaxation and healing among athletes. If Graston can help the most active and injury-prone individuals, we can almost guarantee it will work for you, too.

As with any treatment or technique, we recommend consulting with our professionals first before proceeding with Graston. Deciding on the right treatment requires having comprehensive knowledge of your body and the type of pain you are experiencing. During your initial appointment, our team will meet and get to know you and learn more about your discomfort, therapy history, and why you are interested in the technique. After assessing your needs, we can better decide on the treatment options that are best suited for you. We look forward to welcoming you to our practice and providing you with the customized treatments for your relief, health, and wellness.
