McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique (MSTR®)

Do you have aches and pains that just won’t go? Have you tried lots of different types of therapy and it hasn’t helped? Do you have a scar?

Not only can scars be unsightly, they could also be the reason that you are in pain, have restrictions in your range of movement or not be responding to various other forms of therapy!

What is MSTR®?

The McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release® technique is an evidence based, hands-on, pain-free development in addressing scar tissue within the body. If you are experiencing pain or restriction that is not responding to other forms of therapies and you have scar tissue, then this may be the reason why!

This technique has really changed people’s lives for the better. Gentle, finger-tip pressure is applied to the area to help free the restrictions within the scar. No force, oils or lotions are applied, and the work is performed at a pressure always within your tolerance and you are always in control. I am qualified and insured to offer this technique.

What types of scar is MSTR® suitable for?

MSTR® can be applied to several surgical scars such as:

Scars as a result of trauma such as:

And can also be used to assist:

Are there any contraindications to MSTR®?

Yes, there are a few. First your scar must be completely healed and at least 8 weeks old. If surgical mesh has been used, then this would mean that MSTR® cannot be applied to the area. If you have any questions as to whether this would be suitable for your scar(s) please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss if I can help.

What benefits could you experience?

 Not only can scar tissue be responsible for pain, numbness and tingling, it can also be responsible or play a part in a number of issues:

Scarring can also hold and create a lot on emotions. Often this is something you are not even aware of. To read how MSTR® has helped other, please visit the testimonial/case study page

What if my scar/scar tissue is several years old?

 In my experience this the age of the scar plays no part in how successful the outcome will be. I have treated scars that are 40 plus years old with great success and complete resolution of the symptoms they were causing.

How long does a MSTR® session take?

MSTR® appointments will generally take up to 30 minutes but if combined with a Bowen therapy treatment, please allow up to 1 hour.

How many MSTR® sessions will I need?

Everyone and every scar responds differently so there is no definitive answer. Some issues resolve after only one session but others may require several treatments to obtain the desired changes. If however, you have had three sessions and have felt no change in sensation then it is unlikely I would be able to help.

How much will it cost?

A single MSTR® therapy session costs £48. Payment is accepted by cash or major credit or debit cards (excluding American Express). Please note I no longer accept cheques.

How do I book?

To book please call 07709 452412, drop me an email at or complete the contact form.

I will then contact you and establish if MSTR® Therapy may be a suitable technique for you to consider. If after reading the disclaimer below and my booking terms and conditions you would like to book, we will arrange both appointments and these will be confirmed on receipt of your payment.
