GT is the Leader in IASTM Education

We recognize there are options in the marketplace. However, Graston Technique® is the original pioneer of modern IASTM. For more than 20 years, we've set the gold standard of excellence. Other companies have tried to mimic us, but we're the leaders in education. Our course materials are constantly being revised to reflect the latest research and industry best practices.

Graston Technique® is not a generic term. It's a well-known brand synonymous with faster and better patient outcomes. Graston Technique® redefines patient care and practice success.

The Graston Technique® was developed as a combination of our industry-leading training and our specially designed instruments. The M1 Basic 12-hour course includes an hour of didactic lecture that will challenge your anatomical recall and manual therapy skills. The training then moves into hands-on lab demonstrations with performance, feedback, teaching, supervised open practice and case troubleshooting.

The completion of M1 is required before using or purchasing a GT instrument set. Clinicians who pre-order instruments prior to training will leave the course as GT Providers and will be able to start treating patients the very next day.

M2-Advanced Training/GT Certified

The M2 Advanced 14-hour course takes the GT Provider to the next level of learning, earning them the Graston Technique® Certified status. M1 establishes guidelines for GT and the basic framework for static stroke applications. M2 adds five new treatment strokes and new procedures for assessing musculoskeletal dysfunction while introducing movement and the principles of regional interdependence and 3-D kinetic chain myofascial applications.

As a company focused on education, GT has also partnered with MedBridge to offer additional educational opportunities. Check out our new online courses at GT.MedBridgeEducation.com.

The Strength of GT

More than 24,500 clinicians, 3,042 outpatient facilities, 86 industrial sites and 431 professional and amateur sports organizations worldwide offer Graston Technique®, a unique, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. Additionally, GT is part of the curriculum at more than 45 respected colleges and universities.

Testimonial

"Having been fully certified in the Graston Technique now for more than 8 years, I can only say it has been an invaluable therapeutic tool for me in my sports-based musculoskeletal practice. When used dynamically or functionally, incorporating GT helps me achieve excellent clinical outcomes on an ongoing basis. I would not be able to practice as I do without adding GT to my treatment protocols. Certification and instrument purchase has paid for itself many times over."
