The McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique ® (MSTR®) is an amazing advancement in the treatment of scar tissue and is changing people’s lives.
About the Architect
Alastair McLoughlins experience as a bodyworker commenced in the early 1980s. In the 1990s, he spent over seven years (1997-2005) teaching as one of the UKs foremost senior instructors with the Bowan Therapy Academy of Australia. A further seven years (2011-2018) was spent teaching his own techniques, which enhanced his clinic work and that of hundreds of other practitioners he taught around the world.
In his words ‘probably the most valuable and important technique I ever developed’ is his scar work.
Why is MSTR so effective?
The multi-directional technique means we are addressing the tissue from all angles of fascia and adhesions. The rapid moves of MSTR also facilitate the release of the tight and densely bound collagen fibres that inhibit blood and lymph flow in and around the scar. The combination of the speed of the MSTR moves and the multidirectional movements themselves make MSTR work truly effective and life-changing in some instances.
