Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS)
Complementary therapies specialize in using microcurrent point stimulation (MPS therapy) to treat chronic and acute pain and scars in an all-natural, drug-free way. By applying microcurrent impulses we target acupuncture points, to provide pain relief.
MPS therapy integrates the principles of acupuncture with modern neurological science providing a natural and holistic approach to treat the body and mind. They work together to provide highly effective, and natural relief from chronic pain, stress / anxiety, and can aid in scar release.
It has been clinically proven that microcurrents closely approximate the body's naturally cellular bio-electric current. It accelerates the ATP, protein synthesis, metabolism and regulation that is key for Scar tissue healing.
Scar Release Therapy (SRT), is a safe, clinically tested and a highly effective technique developed and patented by the Center for Pain & Stress Research in reducing the negative influences of scars.
Scar and relating adhesions often compress nerves, affect muscle function, change energy flow, and affect blood and lymph flow through the affected area.
Scar release Therapy:
- Speeds up the healing process of the scar.
- Decreases pain in the connective tissue.
- Helps to relax and fade scar tissue.
We are able to visually change the appearance and mobility of scars. We often treat scars including those from breast augmentation or reduction or mastectomy, C-sections, removal of deep moles or skin lesions, facelifts, trauma scars, or any scars from surgeries. No matter how old the scar is, we can usually make significant physical changes!
How does it work?
This technique involves the simultaneous application of a safe low level microcurrent to each side of the Physical scar. The microcurrent helps to relax and fade scar tissue, which can impede the functioning of muscles, fascia, and cause pain.
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 number of sessions is determined by the depth and healing capacity of the scar, and we will be able to further guide you regarding this during the appointment.
SRT Microcurrent Point stimulation (MPS), increases inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and healing functioning to reawaken the skin's ability to self-generate. Scar Release Therapy (SRT) increases catabolism through cellular "repolarization".
C-Section Scar Release treatment (SRT)
MPS (Microcurrent Point Stimulation) is a technique we use to release scars and is especially effective in treating large, deep, painful scars.
MPS in combination with manual release work (scar massage), significantly reduces the restrictions of scar tissue.
C-sections scars have already been in researched postoperative causing neck, back and hip pain along with all sorts of organ dysfunction.

What is a scar?
A scar is the tissue that is formed from the body's natural healing process in response to an injury, including surgical incisions. Your body begins the process to heal your skin almost immediately, but this process can take up to 1-2 years to fully complete. When the deep layer of your skin (the dermis) is damaged, your body produces new collagen to repair the wound. During this healing process, the body's primary objective is to act as fast as possible to protect the surrounding structures and reduce the risk of infection. It is in the last stage where you may experience restriction and pain with movements, especially if you do nothing to control the scar development.
When an injury occurs, the tissues go through 3 main stages of healing - Inflammation, Proliferation and Remodeling.
Inflammation, occurs initially. This is your body
"kick-starting" the healing process. All kinds of chemicals and cells are acting fast
to clean up the area and protect from further injury.
Your signs and symptoms may include Heat, Redness, Swelling, Pain, and Loss of function.
Then comes the Proliferation stage. This is where the wound
attempts to "rebuild" by laying down new tissue and developing new
Signs and symptoms; Reduced pain, Swelling starting to reduce, Bruising may appear, Heat and Redness reduced.
Finally is the Remodeling stage. The wound is getting stronger, but the new
fibres aren't aligned well, so scar tissue is produced and can take from 6 months up to 2 years to fully mature.
Signs and symptoms; Some pain, Movement gradually improving, Minimal to no swelling, heat, and redness.Although your body is attempting to make the injured area stronger by laying down scar tissue.
This can result in an increased risk of injury and a reduction in range of movement. The scar tissue also develops additional nerve endings, meaning more pain can be felt in the area.
What is scar massage?
Scar massage is a technique that includes moderate deep pressure that prevent the scar from becoming hard and raised, and to prevent it from sticking to the underlying tissues including muscles and bones, which limit movement. Scar massage is also a way to desensitize the area if you notice your scar is tender or painful when touched. This can be started when the wound is fully healed, usually as early as 3-6 weeks when there are no surgical staples, steri-strips, or scabs.
How is scar massage performed?
In the Scar massage, we use the pad of our thumb or fingers directly on the scar and we rubb in a circular matter. We want to be sure to give enough pressure to move the scar and skin, not just rub the fingers on top of the scar. You will fill the correct pressure when the skin blanches, becomes white, under the finger and your fingers are not sliding over the scar but the scar is actually moving with the motion of the fingers.
You can continue some scar massage t home for at least the first 6 months and then if the scar is no longer painful and is mobile, you can reduce to 3 days a week until the scar is fully mature. This is when the color becomes pale pink and the skin is flat.
We offer Scar management for:
- Post Orthopedic procedures at least from week 3-4
- Post Onco-Plastic surgeries and reconstructions
- Post Cosmetic procedures and any other scar surgery.
Things to remember:
It is important to not let your scar become dry.
During massage and throughout the day, you can apply lotion or vitamin E, Eucerin or Cocoa Butter.
It is best to apply the lotion after the massage to prevent your fingers slipping off the scar resulting in a decreased ability to actually move the scar over the underlying bone and tissue.
During your scar massage, keep an eye out for blistering, open areas, or a rash. You may be applying too much pressure or being too rough. If this happens, stop massaging in this area and allow it to heal.
Scars are more susceptible to sunburn than regular skin. It is important to keep your scars covered at least for the first year. Also, after that, be sure to apply sunscreen to your scars to prevent burns.
