Scar Release Therapy

Did you know that a scar on one part of the body can cause pain somewhere else, or organ dysfunction and possibly a subsequent illness? A scar is often the hidden culprit in mystery illnesses or unresolved pain patterns that have not responded to conventional treatments. This subject is not yet widely understood. Consequently the impact of scars on our health goes largely unrecognized. Many people experience significant pain in the scar itself.

Some types of scarring occur beneath the surface of unbroken skin and are thus even more likely to be overlooked.

Trauma and surgery cut through muscles, nerves, lymphatic vessels, connective tissue and acupuncture meridians. Both organ function and the structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system can be significantly compromised.

For example, there is a high incidence of digestive disturbances in women who have had breast surgery. In the Chinese Medical Model, the Stomach Meridian passes directly through the breast. Organ function is directly affected by the disruption caused by a scar that cuts through any part of that organ’s corresponding meridian.

What is Scar Release Therapy?  Bio-compatible therapeutic micro-current is used to correct de-polarized scar tissue, release constricted connective tissue, relieve pain and restore meridian flow to the affected organ(s). Hard, raised scars will soften and melt. Physical appearance and discoloration of scars can also be reduced and scar sensitivity minimized.

Scar Release Therapy for mastectomy with ‘back flap’ reconstruction can reduce pain, restore range of motion and speed recovery.

Scar Release Therapy can enhance your recovery from:

  • Mastectomy/reconstruction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast implants
  • Tumor removal
  • C-Section / hysterectomy
  • Skin grafting
  • Orthopedic or other surgeries
  • Other surgical or non-surgical pain

It is important to note that not all scarring is on the surface of the skin. Many surgeries are performed laparoscopically, or arthroscopically, whereby the incisions made are relatively small. However, the work that is done internally may be quite considerable, and it is here where there may be significant internal scarring that is not evident on the skin surface. Scar tissue is depolarized, contracted and dysfunctional regardless of whether or not you can see it. Thus, all scar tissue should be released in order to relieve the body of the multi-layered harmful effects of scars on our health.

Is Scar Release Therapy suitable for everyone?

Scar Release Therapy is suitable for most people, with a few exceptions.  Scar Release Therapy is not suitable for pregnant women. If you have a pacemaker, or other implanted electrical devices, or have a history of epilepsy or grand mal seizures, you will need a letter of permission from your doctor.

How long does it take?

Session times vary depending on the extent of your scars. Anywhere from one and a half to two and half hours, on average, but we do not stop by the clock, rather, we ‘cook until done’. Session time includes treatment and intake/assessment. Fees are pro-rated accordingly.

How many treatments are required?

In most cases, one treatment is sufficient. In rare cases two treatments are necessary for optimum results. For example, deep scarring from multiple C sections would benefit from a follow up treatment 3 months from the first one. Simple scars will take less time. Complex or multiple scars take longer. If your scars have been causing postural distortions, your therapist may recommend that you follow up with tensegrity matrix bodywork.link to page

What are the effects?

Scar Release Therapy is clinically proven to increase inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and healing functioning to re-awaken the tissue’s ability to regenerate. The resulting release in the fascial constrictions increases blood circulation, lymph drainage and facilitates an overall reduction in stress. It is not uncommon for there to be an emotional release when the scarring resulted from an incident of trauma. You will feel better!

Is Scar Release Therapy a well researched and published science?

Yes. The application of DC micro-current via the MPS device is one of the most actively researched approaches in the broader field of electrotherapy. It is clinically proven and endorsed by the American Academy of Pain Management. (This treatment can help you with pain relief even if you don’t have scars). The therapy is taught to a broad range of healthcare professionals, including doctors, physician assistants, nurses, kinesiologists, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists and others. Over the last 30 years, more than 80,000 professionals have been trained and over 10,000,000 patients are treated annually. MPS therapy is a leading edge resource within both the western allopathic and holistic medical fields. Learn more at acumedmedical.ca (Canada).

 

What else do I need to know to prepare for my session?

Plan on having a few hours of quiet time immediately following your session. This is important. It is normal to feel the need to rest, and it is crucial to allow that, do not override it!

Please do not wear perfume, cologne, or scented lotion to your appointment. You must be completely unscented. This is an absolute requirement.

Drink plenty of water before and after your session.

Arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow time to fill out the form so that you are ready to start your session on time.

What Clients have to say about Scar Therapy

“My mastectomy scars were painful and left me feeling tight and restricted. I was amazed that just one treatment relieved the pain and freed up my range of motion considerably. I can swim and run again with no discomfort! Thank you.”
