Marjorie Brook has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 20 years and in all that time a reoccurring theme seems to have prevailed: the presence of scar tissue can have a lifelong physiological effect on the body — a fact that seems to have eluded traditional healthcare professionals. This realization combined with her clinical experience, education, teaching and research, has led to developing the STRAIT (Scar Tissue Release and Integrated Therapies) Method to release restricted tissues and restore balance and freedom of movement.
The STRAIT Method is a series of fascial techniques that release and realign the restrictive tissue from the starting point (visible scar) to the end point (where the line of frozen fascia stops). This release system differs from traditional methods because it approaches the multi faceted matrix of fascia three dimensionally.
What is Scar Tissue?
Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that have replaced normal skin, or other tissue, after injury. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. Scar tissue is never as functional as the original tissue it has replaced. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (both internal and external) results in some degree of scarring.
What are Adhesions?
Adhesions are bands of scar tissue that anchor and support the wound. It binds all tissue it comes into contact with together. Adhesions will form whenever there is inflammation in the body. Although adhesions can occur anywhere, the most common locations are within the stomach, pelvis and heart.
Importance of Incorporating Scar Tissue Release Therapy into Your Repertoire of Services
Scars and the multitude of issues that can be traced back to them are generally overlooked by health professionals. Simply because the extent of physiological effects scars can have on the body have never really been acknowledged. As massage therapists we know that the slightest restriction in the elaborate matrix of fascia can have major repercussions from one end of the body to the other.
- A simple scar from a childhood accident to major surgery can have a lifelong effect both physically and mentally for your client.
- Scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction including internally throughout the body.
- Scar Tissue can restrict movement or function anywhere in the body from a joint to an organ.
Working scar tissue is extraordinarily simple to learn, easy to apply and yields powerful results that can prevent a lifetime of compensation, complications and pain.
What you will learn in this course:
- The long- and short-term effects of scar tissue — from the physiological to the psychological
- Which orthopedic and neurological factors to take into account when working with a new patient
- The indications and contraindications for Scar-Tissue Release Therapy relating to diseases, injuries, joint replacements, and aging factors
- The art of effective client communication.
- Introduction to Integrated Therapeutic Stretching
- Find out how to assess fascial restrictions throughout the body and how to breakdown scar tissue and adhesions — from superficial to deep fascia.
Discover a detailed eight-step approach to manually releasing scar tissue and adhesions — including techniques for lengthening and increasing the lymphatic and venous circulation to the connecting tissues.
This workshop will give you hands-on practice with different types of scar tissue. You’ll also be given instruction in the use of proper body mechanics that will support you in your work as a scar-tissue release therapist.
Personal experience is essential to understanding the effectiveness of this technique — be prepared to give as well as receive a treatment.
