See below: The graston technique is a type of deep muscle work that tries to address irritibility in muscle tissue. It is basically a type of deep tissue massage and it uses a device to try to clear out irritable areas of muscle. It can be very uncomfortable as a lot of these techniques are.

Graston: This technique is used by chiropractors and perhaps some pt's. It is the use of metal rods and bars rolled over tense and tight muscles to promote blood flow, break down "adhesions", relax the muscle.
