If you have scarring that you’re self-conscious about, or restricts your movement, Mcloughlin Scar Tissue Release® (or MSTR®) is a revolutionary technique for changing the nature and effect of scars and scar tissue on the body and mind.
All scars are a trauma to the body. They can arise from many ways. Not only are they created by surgery, but they can be created from wounds, accidents, physical attacks, burns and many other traumas.
We get scars when the skin is damaged. The scar you see on the surface is like the tip of the iceberg. Consider the incision for a caesarean section that goes through all the layers of the skin, the fascia and abdominal muscles, and the wall of the uterus. There’s a depth and breadth of scar tissue under the skin that we can’t see.
When the wound goes into the deeper layers of the skin the healing response is what we see on the surface as a scar. The body naturally forms scar tissue in its reaction to heal a wound. Collagen creates a thick fibrous area where circulation is reduced which can cause tension that has a pulling effect on the surrounding tissue and joints.
The effects of a scar are not to be underestimated. The implications of scar tissue extend far beyond the area of the scar and original injury showing up as reduced movement or restricted motion, and often referred pain elsewhere in the body.
Effects to other areas in the body depend on the scar location. It’s well documented that abdominal scars can be associated with back pain, hip pain, diaphragmatic breathing, jaw, and shoulder problems.
Sue worked on my scars from 53 years ago. I have noticed how much smoother they are and the appearance has changed as they don't seem to dominate the whole area as they always did. My breathing capacity has increased in addition my keep fit teacher has commented that my movements have increased. I am able to do certain exercises I couldn't do before.
After the removal of lymph nodes 8 years ago this was the change in the range of movement in just 2 sessions. This has made a huge difference for this lady in everyday activities.

Scar tissue can cause many different symptoms including:
After 4 sessions there is a significant change in this 40 year old scar that was caused by the removal of my knee cap - still working on it when I remember!
Releasing scar tissue using MSTR® can result in:
In addition to the scar work I use Red Light as well to compliment the work and promote healing
No need to suffer with scars, there is at now an effective treatment available!
MSTR® is suitable for everybody.Scars can be formed by accident, surgery, burns, acne, or stretching – women get stretch marks from the expansion during pregnancy and I have seen lots of stretch marks on the backs of people who had rapid growth spurts during adolescence.
MSTR® can offer relief and increased mobility.
MSTR® is a very gentle therapy where the effects can be subtle but powerful.
In a MSTR® session the practitioner applies light moves to the scarring. The treatment is gentle, impactful and is changing lives – it’s truly remarkable.
The received wisdom is 5 sessions for maximum effect but many people in my experience are happy with the result from fewer sessions. For extensive scarring then that’s a discussion!
MSTR® can help by restoring circulation and flexibility to the collagen fibres resulting in lasting improvement, physically and aesthetically.
It doesn’t matter how long you have had the scar, working on it with this Mcloughlin Scar Tissue Release® technique can still change things. If you can get to Portsmouth, come and see me.
