R+ Series L Bar

Try Before You Buy: No extra fees, 1st payment in 30 days.


The R+ bar gives you the benefit of a shorter accessory handle that stays out of the way when working around a client on the table (no handle bumping the table when working into medial or lateral areas on a supine patient). Also, in addition to the traditional long bar IASTM edge on the concavity, there is wider radius “wave” profile that locks in for deep penetrating tissue waves. In 20 years of clinical experience Dr. Matt and colleagues have found that the traditional IASTM edges on many bar tools are too sharp for working past superficial layers. The perfect solution was to keep the traditional sized edge on the concavity and designed a “softer” wider edge on top for the deeper layers.

Tool Details:

R+ L Bar:The R+ L Bar is designed for long, over 8,” tissue strokes in the large muscles of the back, thigh, and leg (traps, erectors, glutes, hams, quads, calf). R+ L Bar Weight: 14oz and Dimensions: L 14" x W 1-1/8" x D 1/4".

No Redundancy of Tools or Profiles. Myo-Bar profiles are original, individually handcrafted, and scaled to anatomy so that only one instrument is usually necessary for a given treatment area. Many competitor sets have redundant "shapes." Extra tools are a waste of money if they don't perform a unique application.

Improved Ergonomics. Myo-Bar incorporates balance points and grip features in every single product. Familiar Gua Sha and Graston profiles were terrible to grip, often slipping out of the hand or causing fatigue in the fingers.

Better Results with Superior Edge Finish. Each 304 solid stainless steel instrument is hand finished to perfection so that each edge has a micro-radius and transitions between profile features are smooth. This prevents abrasion and injury to the skin and assures maximum comfort and superior clinical results.

Clinical Support. Dr. Matthew Hajzl, designer of all the Myo-Bar profiles and soft tissue practitioner for 20 years offers a Technique Primer and is available by email or phone when you need guidance with your treatment for any reason.

Free Extras. FDA approved sanitary tray/tool organizer + 40 page PDF Technique Primer. All sets of two or more tools include Cordura® zipper case with embroidered logo. Myofascial oil & cleaner samples for domestic orders.

Benefits of the R+ Series

R+ Series - IASTM Tools - Graston Alternative

A Solid Grip

The Red Handles

Your hand squeezes a comfortable and familiar sized handle. Each tool is equipped with a non-slip grip, so you don't have to worry about gripping the sharp edge of an odd shape, which is a common problem of many IASTM and Gua Sha tools.

Balance Point

Balance Point/Finger Rest

The balance point acts as a pivot point for better leverage, consistency, and control. Whether you are using the top or bottom edge, this feature will allow the index or middle finger to guide the tool comfortably with a secure hold.

Different Edge Sizes

Small and Larger Radii

"Sharper" narrow edges are good for scanning, superficial tissue warming, & release. "Traditional" edges are good for most IASTM treatments. "Wide" edges are best for the deep layers of muscles, or sensitive muscles like the front of the neck.

Original Myo-Bar

Deep Fascia "Barrel Edge"

Easy to maneuver for self-care along with added comfort for deep fascial release than traditional & scanning edges. Myo-Bar is the only IASTM tool brand that allows treatment beyond the superficial layers of the large muscles of the back & lower extremity.

Quick & Easy Cleaning

Smooth Surface for Cleaning

Emollient stays on the treatment side of the instrument, so your hand and the red grip stays clean. After treatment, only a spritz with sanitizer and a wipe down with a paper towel is all that is needed to prepare the tools for the next use.

Advanced "L" Bars

Better Two-Handed "L" Bars

L Bars have a "Wave" profile on the top of the tool for deep & comfortable strokes. The bar also has a trimmed handle which stays out of the way when rotating into the adductors or when treating a patient's medial/lateral muscle groups on a table.

Scaled to Anatomy

Each Tool has a Purpose

We made sure our profiles don't repeat. Each instrument has a convexity/concavity that scales with anatomy. "L" is bigger than "M" which is bigger than "S." You will always have the perfect sized tool for the target anatomy you are treating.
