Fluid Motion Soft Tissue Tools For Your Massage Practice

posted by Custom Craftworks on April 25, 2019

FMST-Tools
Our FMST (Fluid Motion Soft Tissue) Tools are used to effectively and gently manipulate tissue over all surfaces of the body, reduce scarring, control pain and improve joint and muscle flexibility. They were thoughtfully designed to be efficient and effective at the same time. Here are a few of the top features:

Easy to Use

The custom-molded, non-slip thumb grip makes these instruments easy to grasp and hold, even with slippery creams. The angular grip also allows for more control and ease of use. And at 12 ounces and 4.6 ounces, their superior weight allows therapists to affect tissue with fewer strokes and less pressure. 

 

FMST lotion
The wave edge pushes creams/lotions back on to the patients skin to keep it off the therapist's hands and off the top of the instrument for less slippage.

Innovative Design

FMST-lotionEvery edge on each instrument is specifically designed to track lotion/cream back on the patient rather than onto the tool itself and the therapist's hand. This eliminates the need to wipe the tools of lotion/cream during a treatment session and keeps the therapist's hand free from slipping and sliding on the instruments. 

The edge also has the proper design to grab the tissue in a way that allows proper glide between muscle and fascia to improve blood flow for healing.

These FMST Tools are made from a unique metal injected plastic (65% stainless steel) for ideal weight and durability. This material has a soft edge feel that improves patient comfort and healing. It's the perfect blend for a lifetime of optimal use.

These instruments feature an ambidextrous design so it doesn't matter if a therapist is right-handed or left-handed, they can use them either way.
