About McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique ® (MSTR ®)
What is Scar Release Therapy
Scars arise for many different reasons and can have a wide range of functional and emotional effects on the body. Scars can cause problems such as tenderness, pain, numbness and restriction, therefore working directly on and around the scar can help with:
Reduction in pain associated with the scar
Improvement in range of movement, flexibility and energy flow
Improvement in appearance and texture of the scar
Improvement in blood and lymph flow
Improvement in numbness and sensation of the scar
MSTR Scar Tissue Release is a simple and gentle, but effective method of reducing the symptoms associated with recent or long-term scars.
MSTR has also been shown to be effective on the scar tissue resulting from traumatic injuries and muscle injuries. Scars can also hold onto emotions associated with the event, so working on freeing tight fascia may evoke an emotional release as well.
MSTR® is a novel scar tissue release therapy that has shown to have long-lasting results improving restrictive patterns, complications and pain.
Who is this for
It can be effective for anyone who has scarring due to surgical procedures or injuries regardless of the age of the scar such as:
Abdominal surgery – open or laparoscopic
Shoulder, hip, knee, hand surgery
When can a scar be treated
Any scar that is at least 8 weeks post- surgery and well healed can be treated (except Mesh repairs). The sessions can be a stand-alone or combined with Bowen sessions depending on each client. The technique is applied to the scar and surrounding skin.
If you have a scar which is bothering you or potentially causing restriction in movement and function, please feel free to contact me for further information or to book an appointment.
