It all started in the year 2014 in the Physiotherapy Lab of Human Performance in the University of Patras, Greece.
Ass. Professor Dr. Konstantinos Fousekis and then student Konstantinos Mylonas were studying the effects of IASTM applications on athletic injuries. Their applications allowed local athletes to quickly return to the game post-injury. They had set up a full musculoskeletal therapy system based on IASTM. After months of research in the Lab, trial and testing they decided this knowledge needed to be shared. ERGON IASTM Technique was born with a mission to educate!
Since the first in-class course in October 2015, the road has been full of exciting milestones.
Developing the optimal set of IASTM tools, starting from actual treatment applications and designing tools to serve therapy, not the other way around.
Bringing together a team of competent therapists, highly motivated to teach, share knowledge and skills.
Building international partnerships with universities and education companies.
