Scar Tissue Release

As a hands-on practitioner, you just can't afford to ignore scars and the effect they have on related trauma, movement, and the nervous system.

The McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique ® (MSTR®) is a fascinating advancement in the treatment of scar tissue and is changing people’s lives.


Research at the Newcastle Clinic under ultrasound showed and documented clear changes in scar depth, width, adhesion, vascularity, lymph movement. It was also possible to documents changes in mood states and other long term affects the scar has on health.

Multiple small scars can also change movement patterns, pain signalling and the experience of pain for the individual. Even though they may appear insignificant.

This workshop is provided for healthcare professionals who wish to add this unique, and effective evidence-based treatment technique to their therapeutic ‘toolbox’.


MSTR® is used for:

  • Caesarian section scars

  • Hysterectomy scars

  • Spinal surgery scars

  • Trauma scars such as those typically found on the knee

  • Head wound scars

  • Mastectomy scars etc…

  • Amputation scars

Success has also been reported with burns scars in some instances!
