Scar tissue

Surgery or traumatic scarring can cause the following issues on the scar site, or the surrounding area, along with an emotional connection in some cases:

  • pain;


  • numbness;

  • referred pain in other areas;

  • movement restrictions in the area or other areas not obviously seen as connected to the scar site;

  • burning or itching;

  • hypersensitivity;

  • muscle atrophy;

  • feeling of being disconnected;

Scarring, from surgery such as caesarean sections, hysterectomies, appendectomies, knee replacements and reconstructions, spinal surgery, and traumatic scars from accidents can usually be helped by this technique.

The technique can affect scar tissue in the following four ways:

  1. By reducing pain or by increasing sensitivity through affecting nerve pathways;
  2. Scars often change colour to blend in better with the surrounding tissue, due to the increase in blood flow to the scar;
  3. Scars can often become less indented or lumpy, due to the increase in fluid and lymph to and from the area;
  4. Energy flow in the body can change as meridians can be ‘unblocked’.

One of the most outstanding features of this work is that results obtained with this method are reliable and long-lasting. Whenever you normalise scar tissue it does NOT revert back to its former state.

This is because I believe we are fundamentally changing the arrangement of collagen filaments in the dermis and epidermis.” – Alastair McLoughlin, developer of the McLoughlin Scar Release Technique.

After one or two sessions, The Bowen Way clients have reported their scars becoming less noticable; less lumpy; having reduced itching; regaining feeling; tissue softening; becoming smoother to the touch; and pain in other areas reducing considerably!
