Scars may have a huge influence on our presenting problems. They can cause:

• restrictions in the fascia

  • reduction in blood and lymph flow
  • weaken muscular strength

• reduce the flow of energy

• inhibit joint movement

They may feel and look unpleasant and may even upset us emotionally due to the traumatic events that created them.


Multiple small scars can also change movement patterns, pain signalling and the experience of pain for the individual even though they may appear insignificant.


McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release or MSTR is a gentle and effective, natural way of working on scar tissue. It can help the scar and surrounding areas rapidly return to a more normal state.

MSTR is applied using gentle pressure moves with fingertips,  helping to gently free the restrictions in the scar tissue. No force is involved in any way and there is no use of chemicals, oils or lotions.

This scar work is not massage, deep friction work, fascial release or Bowen: it is a unique method that focuses solely on scar tissue and works with the collagen fibres in the skin.


MSTR is used ,for example, for:


  • Caesarian section scars
  • Scars from joint replacements eg knee
  • Hysterectomy scars
  • Spinal surgery scars
  • Trauma scars such as those typically found on the knee
  • Head wound scars
  • Mastectomy scars 
  • Amputation scars
  • Underlying scar tissue from laparoscopic surgery 
  • Scars from burns


I have also seen it to be hugely beneficial for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis and Dupuytrens Contracture.
