Gail Tumes - MSTR® Instructor

What is McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique® (MSTR®)??

The treatment of scar tissue, up till now, has been the most neglected of all bodywork skills. McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release® Technique is a highly-advanced, innovative and successful method of scar tissue treatment. Clinical study finds untreated scar tissue can impede or prevent successful therapeutic intervention.

The effects of post-surgical scars on the human body cannot be underestimated.

The body forms scar tissue as a natural response to trauma when skin is lacerated or punctured either by accident or purposefully ie. surgery. The thickened, fibrous mass of a scar can impede proper circulation of blood, congests lymph flow, and can even impact on Range of Motion.

Why you should attend this vital one-day class?

Many bodyworkers have little or no knowledge of scar tissue, how it affects the body and more importantly what can be done to treat it and minimise its effects.

This one-day workshop changes all that!

Participants at the MSTR® workshop will be amazed how simple, yet highly effective, the MSTR® Technique is and how quickly they can implement it into their practice.

Gail's attention to detail will ensure you receive dedicated hands on practical experience along with informative theory.
