What is Scar Release Therapy?

Scar Release Therapy, or SRT, uses the latest advances in science to address both chronic pain and dermal scarring after any trauma or surgery. SRT applies Micro­current Point stimulation, a patented solution that is based on the scientific concept of increasing skin’s inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis, and healing functioning to re-awaken the skin’s ability to self generate. By targeting direct cellular stimulation of microcurrent waves through the scars, this simple and discomfort-free procedure works by reducing dermal trauma, adhesions, and fascial restrictions – proven to deliver 73.2% pain relief after a single application. (IJCAM 2017).

Since the body’s fascial system is interconnected, a restriction or adhesion in one area will often affect other areas, impeding muscle function and fascia, and resulting in compensation patterns and pain. Often, scars result in this tightening of the surrounding tissue, creating restricted movement and/or function in the body. These restrictions not only affect the joint, limb, or surrounding area, but they can affect the underlying organs, too. This is because scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction, including internally, throughout the body. Fortunately, releasing the scar can yield powerful results, which can improve mobility, diminish complications, and decrease pain often associated with deep scars. When a scar has been released there is no longer a restriction in the flow of energy, blood circulation, and lymph drainage. The body can then complete the healing process, allowing you to return to or continue with working, walking, exercising, lifting, and doing all the things you enjoy with less discomfort.

Whether from injury or surgery, scar tissue can be significantly improved and softened, and circulation and function can be greatly improved with MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy!

Treatment

An SRT session may last from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the surface area being treated and what other modalities may be included with the treatment. This service can also be added on to any massage, bodywork, or facial treatment. The total number of sessions is determined by the depth and healing capacity of the scar; but a visual change in the appearance and mobility of scars is typically seen in one treatment session. Scar tissue and adhesions can be released in as little as 2-5 visits and usually have drastic improvement in appearance, color, soreness, and tissue mobility within 1-3 sessions.

SCAR RELEASE THERAPY (SRT)

How It Works

Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) is the method used to release, or relax, contracted and tightened tissue. The Scar Release Therapy technique involves the application of a safe, low-level microcurrent impulse to each side of the physical scar simultaneously. This naturally occurring direct current helps to relax and fade the damaged, unhealthy tissue. Coupled with FasciaBlasting and manual release work, (a specialized type of massage), MPS Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy significantly reduces restrictions, adhesions, and distortions.

 

In general, this treatment is completely painless. The use of the microcurrent probes on the tissue surrounding the scar creates a healing, inflammatory response. Dead cells and scar tissue are broken down by the body; circulation is increased to the area; and the lymphatic system excretes the dead cells. You will see visible changes in the appearance of the scar and gradually will notice a reduction in the tightness and restriction felt at the site of the scar. The duration of treatment will depend on how long you’ve had the scar, how deep it is, and the severity of any pain you may be having. There is no expiration date on scar release; no matter how old the scar is, we can usually make significant physical changes. Burns and scarring from childhood have been successfully released, with accompanying beneficial results, several decades after the time of the injury.
