It uses small adjustments in the area in a range of directions to help open the scar tissue and release the surrounding tissue that might be affected.
Each scar is only worked for 7 to 15 minutes dependant on size and quality of the scar, with very light non painful movements. The idea behind this is to create space within the scar without causing an inflammatory response, thus reducing the likelihood that more collagen fibres will head to the area and cause more scarring.
This technique has been shown to have immediate effects after just one session, and has been seen to have a complete reduction in symptoms after 4 or 5 session. Of course it’s different from person to person and an individual may require more or less treatments. The plus side is, with being short procedures, you can book in 15 minute slots for MSTR to help save on money and time.
So far in our clinic we have seen fantastic results with MSTR.
One client we have is a mother of 2 who has 2x cesarean section scars, an appendectomy scar and a hysterectomy scar all on top of each other. This client was experiencing chronic low back pain as the scarring was pulling anteriorly on the spine. Constant episodes of either diarrhea or constipation, and a grapefruit sized area of burning pain in the appendix region.
She had been suffering with these symptoms for the past 8 years and longer and has spent thousands on massage, acupuncture, visceral manipulation, cupping, physio, nutritionists and a range of other complementary therapies, as well as being on daily pain medication with no lasting effects.
