Instrument assisted soft tissue therapy course
By Maria DiDanieli
Toronto, Ont. – Dr. Mohzen Kazemi will be presenting a course titled Instrument
Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy:Intro to the Kazemizer Shark at the CMCC campus in Toronto on
Sunday, May 26.
About the instrument
Kazemizer Shark is an instrument used for soft tissue therapy. It is made of
surgical stainless steel to provide feedback from the tissue
for detection of the adhesion and scar tissue site due to its stiffness and
ability to conduct vibration caused by adhesions, fibrosis and scared tissue.
As such it can be used as a diagnostic tool and locator for the site of
adhesions and scar tissues as well as therapy.
Kazemizer Shark is light and slightly longer than a regular pen; therefore, it
is easy to handle without fatiguing the practitioner. It is easy to clean,
store and even carry in your side pocket. The instrument can be used for all
body parts, with edges that are all bi-beveled so that it could be used in any
directions and sides. The Kazemizer Shark is used to break down scar tissues,
adhesions, to treat trigger points and to enhance blood flow and lymphatic
drainage of the injured areas.
