We all accumulate scars throughout our lives and they impact our bodies in many negative ways. C-sections and abdominal scars may be a hidden cause for millions of women suffering from Chronic Post-Surgical Pain (CPSP), back pain, shoulder pain and neuropathic pain.
Problems associated with scars are not only physical, but emotional. A sense of loss, anger, violation, humiliation and helplessness has been reported associated with C-sections. Depression and PTSD symptoms have been reported by women who have received C-section procedures.
How Scars Negatively Influence Your Body.
- Upregulates the Sympathetic Nervous System producing stress, decreasing Heart rate Variability (HRV)
- Creates internal adhesions inside the body. Adhesions acts as internal strait jackets, reducing muscle/organ performance and produce pain.
- Injures fascia causing restrictions and structural imbalances
- Suppresses female hormone levels
- Blocks blood circulation & energetic flows through the meridian system, causing energy and circulation stagnation in extremities
- Causes chronic pain throughout the body.
Releasing scars which "cut" or "severe" meridians and nerve pathways can often be the single most important factor in the treatment of chronic pain & many women's health issues. In many cases, patients usually see immediate improvement in range of motion as well as a quick reduction in pain that are long lasting. This technique is especially effective in treating scars and adhesions deep inside the body.
My approach to Pain & Scar Release Therapy involves a combination of therapies in a session: Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS), Cold Laser Therapy, Sonicwave Therapy and various manual techniques. It is a quick and highly effective treatment for pain associated with post-operative surgery, myofascial tightness due to scar tissue and adhesions.
You will see immediate visible changes in the appearance and pliability of the scar and gradually will notice a reduction in the tightness throughout your entire body. When a scar has been released there is no longer a restriction in the flow of energy, blood circulation and lymph drainage. The body can then complete the healing process.
Scar Tissue release has a very fine side effect - it is also cosmetically enhancing. "Bumps", "ridges" and "valleys" of even very old scars are evened out so that the appearance of scarring is greatly reduced, often with only a very fine line remaining. Consider trying some sessions before undergoing further surgery to "correct" scar tissue appearance which can sometimes result in even more scar tissue!
A session is 1.5 hours.
Most patients require 3-5 treatments for lasting outcomes, however number of sessions also depends on the amount of scar tissue a person has.
This session includes use of various electrotherapy devices used during session which may be contraindicated for individuals with the following concerns. Please ensure you DO NOT have any of these conditions or check with us and your doctor first if you do.
Specific therapies/protocols of Scar Release Therapy are used to help treat both external and internal adhesions. The process is extremely gentle and involves releasing the fascia where appropriate. A more or less intense prickling may be felt where scar tissue is releasing. There is usually significant difference both in the feeling around the scarring and in its appearance after the first session.
Published research proves MPS Scar release therapy can provide significant pain relief in the 1st session. After a single scar release application, MPS improved pain outcomes 73% on severely chronic pain 51 patients, who suffered an average 7.61 years with an average intensity of 6.33/10.
A 72 year old massage therapist reported that she had constant chronic pain in her low back, rated an 8 out of 10. A seemingly unrelated abdominal scar was treated with Scar Release Therapy. After about 10 minutes, she stood up, walked around, and let her body begin to re-adjust. She shockingly and joyfully reported zero pain! Her face was glowing and she could not believe she had lived with years of pain, after many different therapeutic treatments with no lasting relief, to have scar treatment release the pain in minutes! She had another scar caused by fusion of Cervical Vertebrae 5-6. She reported her daily neck pain to be at a 9 out of 10. She had lived with neck pain for 43 years! The scar on her neck was also treated and went to a zero!
I’ve had 4 major surgeries on my stomach. My stomach had a lot of scar tissue which has caused me some major problems. My scars was also very pronounced and very pink in color. After only a few sessions, my scars totally changed color and became not so pronounced. Now, my stomach is not so tight from all the scar tissue. As well I was experiencing shoulder pain that has disappeared from working on the scars on my stomach. It's absolutely amazing!
I have two significant scars: baclofen pump implantation on my abdomen and spinal fusion surgery that runs from my upper back to my tail bone. Both scars were very tight and pronounced and movement around my torso/abdominal area was very restricted. After several sessions of scar release therapy, the scar is much flatter and pliable. My range of movement in my torso and abdomen is greatly improved. The spinal fusion scar is far less tender and prominent. Also my use of anti-inflammatory drugs and pain medicines has significantly decreased.
I had 3 C-sections, so my abdominal scar was quite noticeable. In addition, there was one spot on the scar that frequently caused me discomfort. I also had intermittent shoulder pain. After one scar treatment, the scar is almost invisible and I have no more pain at the scar site or in my shoulder. That is truly amazing!
One 80 year old family friend for the 1st time in 3 years was able to walk without her walker after just one treatment. I treated her scars from bilateral knee and hip replacement and her lower back. I discovered a scar on her low back that she did not know she had - she then remembered having an abscess drained from the spot when she was about 5 years old. I treated that spot thoroughly. She said her decreased in upper leg pain and increase in mobility was a miracle.

Without the ability to rapidly release the numerous scars of our injured soldiers, many cases of PTSD or chronic pain would have dragged on or failed completely.
