MPS Scar Release Therapy
Scars are the mark of injury to the skin. They can be external or
internal, depending on the cause of the wound. Most wounds (except for
minor ones) will leave a scar, appearing after the wound is
completely healed. The new scar tissue will have a different
texture and quality than the surrounding tissue, and it is generally less
flexible than the surrounding skin.
Type of Scars
There are different types of scars. The type of scar that forms
depends on the age of the person, skin type, skin condition, heredity
and the severity of the wound. Some of the most common types
- Hypertrophic scars (raised and often red)
- Keloidal scars (much like hypertrophic, but spread far beyond the boundaries of the original injury)
- Atrophic scars (these leave depressions in the skin)
- Contracture scars (flat, tight scars that constrict movement, often caused by burns)
- Acne scars (pitting caused by the stretching of pores).
How MPS Scar Release Therapy works
Often, scars result in a tightening of the surrounding tissue that can
restrict movement or function in the body. These restrictions not only
affect the joint, limb or surrounding area, but they can affect the
underlying organs, too. This is because scar tissue has the potential to spread in any
direction, including internally, throughout the body. Fortunately,
releasing the scar can yield powerful results, which can improve mobility,
diminish complications and decrease pain often associated with deep
MPS (Microcurrent Point Stimulation) is the method used to release
scars and is especially effective in treating large, deep, painful
scars. The term ‘release’
refers to the releasing or relaxing of contracted and tightened
tissue. Coupled with manual release work (a specialized type of
massage), MPS therapy significantly reduces the restrictions of scar
In general, this treatment
is completely painless. The use of the microcurrent probes, on the tissue surrounding the scar, creates a healing,
inflammatory response. Dead cells and scar tissue are broken down by the body;
circulation is increased to the area; and the lymphatic system excretes the dead
cells. You will see visible changes in the appearance of the scar and gradually will notice a reduction in the tightness and restriction felt at the site of the scar. The
duration of treatment will depend on how long you’ve had the scar, how deep it
is, and the severity of any pain you may be having.
There is no expiration date on scar release. Nan has helped a Vietnam veteran retain the use of his leg, some forty years after his multiple gunshot injury. Equally, burns
and scarring from childhood have been successfully released, with
accompanying beneficial results, several decades after the time of the injury.
Since the body's fascial system is interconnected, a restriction or adhesion in one area will often affect other areas and result in compensation patterns and pain. 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.
Whether from injury or surgery, scar tissue can been significantly improved and softened and circulation and function can be greatly improved with MPS Scar Release Therapy.
Massage Cupping Therapy and Scar Release
The use of cupping allows for the lifting and separation of the fascia and scar tissue. Combined with MPS therapy, cupping significantly enhances the results of MPS treatment alone.
