The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™

Scar Tissue Release and Integrated Therapies – Created by Marjorie Brook, LMT

The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ or Scar Tissue Release and Integrated Therapies is an innovative and ground-breaking three-dimensional, fascial-release system that works to minimize scar tissue development and the subsequent physiological restrictions.

Marjorie practices this technique at her private practice on Long Island and teaches this technique to other therapists at her S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ seminars.

Why The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™

When Marjorie first began practicing massage therapy in 1997 she couldn’t help but notice how little people understood the emotional and physiological ramifications of even the smallest kink, adhesion, or scar within their bodies – whether we’re talking a minor scar incurred during childhood, or a more serious scar resulting from major surgery as an adult.

The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ combines fascial-scar work – working with your damaged restricted connective tissues – with mind-body interactions, body mechanics, therapeutic stretching and strengthening, and proprioceptive support. Each of these, when combined, create a balanced treatment session that can be modified to the needs of each individual.

The techniques behind the S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ have been adopted by a multitude of healthcare professionals – from doctors and physical therapists, to chiropractors and message therapists.

“Our bodies are intrinsically linked to our thoughts, feelings and actions. When we are stressed, anxious or upset, our bodies communicate back to us that something isn’t right – for example, we may feel increased tension in our shoulders. In extreme circumstances, such as after the loss of a loved one, high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer may result. This is why it’s crucial for therapists to know their patients inside and out in order to understand what’s needed for long-lasting healing.”

Benefits of The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™

Scar tissue treatment is a critical component of eliminating pain and optimizing physical performance. The manual techniques of the S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ release the fascia by separating and realigning the adhered tissues of the scar. This technique not only improves the function of the muscles and other tissues around the scar but can also result in a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the scar itself.

The truth of the matter is scars, and the restrictions they cause can affect every system of the body. Recognizing this is the key to unlocking mysterious pain and other issues that have been interfering with the body’s ability to function and balance. This is where the S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ can help – by undoing the pain caused by scar tissue.

While you may not have much control over how your body will scar, you do have options when it comes to breaking up scar tissue and adhesions. You can play a role in healing your scar with scar tissue massage and the S.T.R.A.I.T Method™.

S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ Patient Testimonials

Understanding Fasica Scar Tissue Release Therapy

Fascia has both widespread and dedicated functions in the body — and it’s become an essential part of treatment for clinicians practicing in conventional, complementary, and alternative therapies.

When we damage our fascia, scar tissue and adhesions develop. This scar tissue can spread in any direction throughout our bodies and restrict how our joints move and our organs function.

These restrictions can cause so much abnormal strain on the body that bones are stressed or pulled out of their natural alignment. This can trigger joint compression, pain and dysfunction. Nerves, veins and arteries can become trapped, which prompts neurological issues and restricted blood flow.

The S.T.R.A.I.T Method™ releases fascia by separating and realigning the adhered tissues from the visible scar through to its end point.

Each technique centers on both the physiological and anatomical source of fascia restriction. Practitioners work on lengthening fibers and releasing the scar tissue and breaking down adhesions — from the superficial to that which is located more deeply within the body.
