The Red HandlesYour hand squeezes a comfortable and familiar sized handle. Each tool is equipped with a non-slip grip, so you don't have to worry about gripping the sharp edge of an odd shape, which is a common problem of many IASTM and Gua Sha tools.
Balance Point/Finger RestThe balance point acts as a pivot point for better leverage, consistency, and control. Whether you are using the top or bottom edge, this feature will allow the index or middle finger to guide the tool comfortably with a secure hold.
Small and Larger Radii"Sharper" narrow edges are good for scanning, superficial tissue warming, & release. "Traditional" edges are good for most IASTM treatments. "Wide" edges are best for the deep layers of muscles, or sensitive muscles like the front of the neck.
Deep Fascia "Barrel Edge"Easy to maneuver for self-care along with added comfort for deep fascial release than traditional & scanning edges. Myo-Bar is the only IASTM tool brand that allows treatment beyond the superficial layers of the large muscles of the back & lower extremity.
Smooth Surface for CleaningEmollient stays on the treatment side of the instrument, so your hand and the red grip stays clean. After treatment, only a spritz with sanitizer and a wipe down with a paper towel is all that is needed to prepare the tools for the next use.
Better Two-Handed "L" BarsL Bars have a "Wave" profile on the top of the tool for deep & comfortable strokes. The bar also has a trimmed handle which stays out of the way when rotating into the adductors or when treating a patient's medial/lateral muscle groups on a table.
Each Tool has a PurposeWe made sure our profiles don't repeat. Each instrument has a convexity/concavity that scales with anatomy. "L" is bigger than "M" which is bigger than "S." You will always have the perfect sized tool for the target anatomy you are treating.
