McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release or MSTR is a gentle and profoundly effective, natural way of working on scar tissue. It can help the scar and surrounding areas rapidly return to a more normal state.
MSTR is applied using gentle pressure moves with fingertips, this helps to gently free the restrictions in the scar tissue.
How does scar tissue impact the body?
The effects of a scar on the body should not be underestimated. The implications of scar tissue extend far beyond the area of the scar and original injury. Treatment of scar tissue is vital in order to resolve referred problems. MSTR can help by restoring flexibility to the collagen fibres resulting in lasting improvement.
Releasing scar tissue using MSTR can result in:
Reduction in pain
A change in colour from white to pink
Lumps, bumps, ridges and dips becoming smoother
Increased movement and motion
Restored sensation and a reduction in numbness and the sensation of hot or cold
An increased blood flow and therefore oxygen to the area
Increased lymphatic drainage reducing swelling and redness
A release of emotion (especially if the scar was acquired in a traumatic or emergency situation)
Frequently Asked Questions
What if my scar is years old, does MSTR still work? Yes, this technique may benefit scar tissue no matter how long you have it, even if it is decades old.
How long should I wait before treating my scar? The scar must be well healed before any form of treatment. As a minimum, at least 6 to 8 weeks should be left between the date of the cause of the scar and the first treatment.
Can it be used on scars with screws, plates or implants? Yes, MSTR can be used on scars that have plates, pins, screws and rods. It can also be used on the scar from breast implant surgery as the technique is not used directly over the implant.
Are there any scars that cannot be treated with MSTR? Scars where surgical mesh has been used cannot be treated with McLoughin Scar Tissue Release Technique.
MSTR is not intended to replace or substitute any medical advice or treatment. It is recommended that you consult your General Practitioner about any health concerns.
