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

McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release® (MSTR®) is an innovative and successful method of scar tissue treatment. Long lasting results are obtained in many, many cases of post-surgical and trauma wound scars – even if the scar is decades old. It is quick, painless and truly amazing in its efficacy.

Why learn MSTR®? 

Treatment of a scar is vital. If a scar is left untreated it may make other therapeutic interventions less effective or not last as long. Even though a scar may be many years old this may be the release technique your Practice has been searching for to give you that edge in effective, long-lasting treatments.
