Experience IASTM and Graston Technique in London at Kinect Health

What is IASTM and Graston Technique?

IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a type of soft tissue assessment and treatment administered with specially designed instruments. Developed from traditional Chinese Gua Sha, IASTM and Graston have proven to be very effective at treating soft tissue problems.

How can IASTM help me resolve pain and injuries?

Specially designed instruments are used to assess and treat soft tissues. This has several therapeutic benefits such as decreasing muscle tone, increasing blood flow and the mobilising of thickened hyaluronic acid. Treatment can also help stimulate and improve the tissue healing / remodeling process.

Graston has been shown to be effective in the treatment of:

  • Lumbar strains and sprains
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Shin Splints

  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Patello-femoral Disorders
  • Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis

Creating change in the nervous system

One of the best outcomes of IASTM is its ability to influence the nervous system. Stimulation of receptors that are found inside muscles, fascia, tendons etc, can help create fast changes to pain, tension and muscle function. Although these changes are often temporary, it creates a window of opportunity to reinforce the changes with movement.

Why movement is key

The goal of all of the techniques we utilise at Kinect Health is to help create lasting change. This can only be done through a systemic approach to influencing soft tissue and reinforcing with movement / exercises. Manual therapy techniques like IASTM, help speed up this process.

KinectHealth is the first place I refer clients to and I highly recommend!It's hard to explain the state the industry is currently at but you'll find these guys are within the 1% that truly understand human physiology on a completely different scale. If you are in pain, and had enough of managing it, give them a chance to show you what you're made of, what's causing it and what you can do about it for good. If you're painfully aware that your body is failing you, let them teach you and give you back options you never even knew were missing.You don't need any experience but you'll highly appreciate their skills if you've been around and already realize how broken the health industry is and want something better - by far.read more

I walked in to see Luke with a 12 yr groin injury and a long standing shoulder and neck problem that caused me to suffer weekly migraines. I had lost all confidence in my body and thought I would never know any difference. What can I say, Luke is a genius...Kinect Health is THE BUSINESS. What he does not know about movement and posture is simply not worth knowing.... I had ample homework but but if you do your part, he can do his. I have not had a migraine since seeing Luke, groin and shoulder pain all gone and all my muscles are so much stronger and more flexible. I cannot thank Luke enough. Any future niggles and I will be back without a doubt. Thx Luke for giving me confidence in my body again.read more

Kinect Health are the only guys I trust when I have a niggle or injury. They’re incredibly knowledgeable and always recognise that as an athlete you don’t want to be told to rest, but properly rehabbed and guided in training so you come back stronger. They’re great at spotting the underlying reason WHY you got hurt and how to re-train movement patterns to avoid further injuryread more

My recommendation for the team at Kinect Health couldn't come any higher. Not only are they extremely effective at helping to reduce your pain levels but they are also extremely knowledgable in the exercise, biomechanical and ergonomic interventions which help to ensure that the actual causes of the pain are effectively addressed in the long term. I regularly use their services myself and have recommended their services to many others. If you are looking for a long term fix for your bodily aches and pains, I would look no further than the Kinect Health Team!read more

Brilliant!I struggled with chronic knee, hip and back pain constantly for around 4 years. I sought the advice of several 'professionals' during this period, none of whom could relieve the pain that I was in. Having an initial 2-hour session with Luke was so refreshing. It was clear that he wanted to get to the root of my issues. My homework consisted of around a dozen exercises which I did daily. Within the first week, I was noticing huge improvements in both mobility and pain levels. A couple of visits later, I am living pain-free. I can't thank Luke enough for the help.read more

Amazing! I am a new person! I have had nothing but issues with my shoulder since my surgery in May 2014. Surgery went well but the after care was... useless. I put on a tonne of weight and could hardly move due to the constant pain. Sometimes the pain was so bad, I couldn’t even wear a coat..... until I found Neil. I’ve seen him 4 times and I’m a different person. I am now training comfortably and pain free, 3 days a week, lifting weights I never thought I’d ever lift. I am also not walking around in pain every single day. Neil, thank you so much! I would recommend these guys to anyone, but more importantly, Neil is now looking after my Mum. I’d also like to add, my partner is one of Lukes clients. He has a terrible historic knee injury, and again Luke has been amazing. He works alongside my partner and his trainer to ensure he can continue to train safely. I would not think twice about recommending these guys!read more

I’ve been seeing Neil at Kinect Health since April 2018 and I would highly recommend him and Kinect. I have suffered with neck, shoulder and upper back pain for 7 years. I have tried NHS physio, private physio, special back care gyms, acupuncture, osteopathy – the works. I initially went to Kinect to try laser therapy as a new option and then I meet Neil and within 10 minutes of talking to him I knew he was what I’d been looking for – his knowledge of physiology, pain, neuroscience and other factors that can help pain like diet and mindfulness is amazing! He is a holistic practitioner. I’ve been seeing him weekly for a mixture of laser therapy, physical therapy and exercises. Since that time my pain has decreased significantly and I’m working towards eradicating it forever! Since seeing Neil I’ve been able to go from part time work to full time work and I’m starting to feel more control over life again. I’ve also got some old hobbies back like running. Neil is great in that he is always coming up with new exercises, techniques and ideas to help improve your life and pain. He keeps it engaging and fun – and he’s a laugh too! But the best thing is he really cares – he is taking this journey with me, he wants me to get better and I thank him for that.read more

I found Kinetic Health searching for a functional movement screen after years of back pain which had plagued me for most of my 20s preventing me from playing sport or generally moving without a lot of pain. Having seen many different practitioners from physio therapists to osteopaths I sought a better understanding of movement patterns and body structure as a whole, hoping I could figure out more about my pain and dysfunction.I booked my first session with Luke over year ago and I'm now regularly playing sport pain free, but more importantly to me, with every session I learn more about how to move efficiently. Luke is passionate and obviously dedicated to helping people understand function that they can take back into their everyday lives. I've gone beyond hoping just to be pain free and I'm now excited about improving my strength and speed in sport something that I'd given up on a long time ago.I highly recommend Kinetic Health to anyone who are not only recovering from injury but are looking to educate themselves about how to move better.read more

Last year, due to stress and several other factors, I developed chronic neck pain, which was impacting my everyday life. I am a ROAR client and was introduced to Neil at Kinect, who has really helped me overcome the problem. Not only is he a great guy with superb knowledge, he also adopts an individual approach to the problem and made sure I understood the causes of my neck pain as we worked on solutions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kinect and will continue to work with Neil this year. A deserved five stars.read more

A life changing experience.I started seeing Luke 3 years ago for a long lasting knee problem. It took some time and a lot of work to solve it but Luke’s passionate and dedicated approach changed my way of training and thought me how to move efficiently. I have always been a sporty person and I realised that Luke’s exercises and techniques could add so much more to my favourite activities and my everyday life. I decided to seeing him weekly because I don’t want just to be pain free, I want to learn how to improve my strength and my motion ability. And Luke is not just a fantastic professional, he really cares and wants you to reach your goals and feel better.Luke is also fantastic with kids. My daughter Martina has been seeing him regularly for about a year to improve her mobility and strength for ballet, whereas my other daughter Matilde saw him for a back injury. They both had a great experience.I would recommend Kinetic Health to anyone, not just to get rid of their pain but, more importantly, to learn how to move efficiently and avoid the pain. It is a life changing experience, the sooner the better!!read more

I can’t recommend Luke at Kinect Health highly enough, his knowledge about movement is immense and he has taught me heaps on how my body should move. From a thigh strain cure, almost instant relief from a frozen shoulder to my last project on learning how to load correctly when training in the gym! Platinum service!read more
