Scar/Adhesions Release Therapy

How Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy works

Often, scars result in a tightening of the surrounding tissue that can restrict movement 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.

MPS is the method used to release scars and is especially effective in treating large, deep, painful scars.  The term ‘release’ refers to the releasing or relaxing of contracted and tightened tissue.  Coupled with manual release work (a specialized type of massage), Scar/Adhesion Release Therapy significantly reduces the restrictions of scar tissue.

In general, this treatment is completely painless. The use of the MPS units, 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.  MPS has helped a Vietnam veteran retain the use of his leg, some forty years after his multiple gunshot injury.  Equally, burns and scarring from childhood have been successfully released, with accompanying beneficial results, several decades after the time of the injury.

Since the body’s fascial system is interconnected, a restriction or adhesion in one area will often affect other areas and result in compensation patterns and pain.  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.

A scar can be a mark left on the skin or on an internal organ by the healing of a wound, sore, surgery or injury due to the body replacing the connective tissue of the injured area. Scars are the result from wounds that have healed, accidents or surgical operations. The slightest restriction in the elaborate matrix of fascia can have major repercussions from one end of the body to the other. Scar Release Therapy is generally overlooked by health professionals because the extent of physiological effects scars can have on the body have never really been acknowledged.

A simple scar from a childhood accident to major surgery can have a lifelong effect both physically, emotionally and mentally.  Scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction including internally throughout the body.
It can also restrict movement or function anywhere in the body from a joint to an organ. Fortunately, releasing scars yields powerful results that can prevent a lifetime of compensation, complications and pain.

Scars will still respond to releasing treatment decades after they have been inflicted! Scars due to cesarean section which are twenty or thirty years old can be treated with great success. Cosmetic surgery as well as internal abdominal adhesions, when treated can relieve symptoms several years after they first appeared.

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

Consider trying Scar Release Therapy before undergoing further surgery to "correct" scar tissue appearance which can sometimes result in even more scar tissue!
