No matter what the cause may be, scars can create a wide range of problems. They are an ever-present reminder of trauma or surgery that can be unsightly and painful. Thankfully, in many cases, the McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique can bring relief. This hands-on technique has been used for decades to help relieve the problems which scarring can cause including restriction in mobility, circulation and lymph flow. The emotional benefits are enormous through regaining confidence and restoring much-loved activities.
At Brisbane Livewell Clinic, Cath Dinnie is a Certified McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release practitioner. She will lightly manipulate the scar tissue, separating the tissue strands to free trapped nerved endings, re-supply blood circulation and improved lymph drainage.
Where is it from?
Alastair McLoughlin is a dedicated professional in the management of musco-skeletal pain, using natural drug-free methods. He is a Bowen Therapist, instructor and author. Mr McLouglin realised that specific treatment for scar tissue had been overlooked. As the physical and emotional effects of scars on the human body can be serious, he developed this unique technique to specifically treat scar tissue. He now teaches this method internationally.
Who can benefit?
The body forms scar tissue as a natural response to trauma when the skin is lacerated or stitched either by accident or as a result of surgery. Collagen is laid down during the repair process results in a thickened fibrous mass which can impede proper circulation. Often the area itches or burns and can be oversensitive. After treatment, the scar tissue will not revert back to its original state, however, some scars may not visually change at all, they may just feel better to touch and less painful.
Scar Tissue Release Therapy is especially suited to patients who:
- Undergone C-Section (Caesarian birth)
- Have a hypersensitive scar
- Visibly puckered, thick scar
- Deep scarring with loss of muscle or tissue wastage
