Scar Tissue Release

What can help my scar?

Scar Tissue  is one of the most ignored issues in bodywork, yet it can have a profound effect on our life, both physically and emotionally. 


Fortunately there is now a painless gentle technique to help scar tissue.McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release is an innovative and successful method for the treatment of scar tissue. Long lasting results are obtained in many, many cases of post surgical and trauma wound scars – even if the scar is decades old.

What Scars Can do to us.....

The body forms scar tissue as a natural response to trauma when the skin is punctured or lacerated either by accident or purposefully – i.e. surgery. Collagen is laid down in the repair process which results in a thickened, fibrous mass which impedes the proper circulation of blood and congests lymph flow.

As the scar is fibrous and non-elastic it will have a dragging and pulling effect on the surrounding tissues, including joints. This will be experienced as a restricted range of motion, where greater than usual force needs to be applied in order to move the affected joint or joints

​Surrounding tissues and structures may experience the following symptoms and effects:​

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pain
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Muscle and tissue wastage (atrophy)
  • Postural distortion
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Loss of flexibility
  • Feeling of coldness
  • Feeling of ‘disconnection’ between lower and upper parts of the body
  • These symptoms may persist for decades after surgery with the loss of sensation being an ongoing experience that interferes with daily life.



Treatment of your scar is vital!

Treatment of Your Scar is Vital!

According to research, if a scar is left untreated it may make other therapeutic interventions less effective or not last as long. Even though your scar may be many years old, this may be the release your body has been searching for. For example long term back pain may be linked to old abdominal surgery.

C-Section scars can have a major impact with abdominal pain, restriction of movement, back pain, bladder and bowel problems.

As well as physical changes, psychological and emotional states may also improve as scar tissue is addressed.

One interesting side effect of this scar work is the common feedback from clients that they feel more energised after this treatment.
