Lecture On “THE ROLE OF SCAR TISSUE”

In this lecture, Marjorie Brook explains what scar tissue is, and how it affects movement over a lifetime. She gives several examples of long-term effects, and tells the stories of success with those clients.

“Scar tissue and adhesions are the results of the body’s natural healing process, and it occurs both internally and externally. This process, if working correctly, should eliminate scar tissue and adhesions once the wound has healed, but in some cases, a person’s body does not break down the scar tissue. The adhered tissue continues to spread, which can trigger a cascading effect of compensations involving the kinetic chain throughout the body.” ~Marjorie Brook

Emu Oil

Emu-Oil-Logo

Emu oil helps provide relief from pain and inflammation in injured joints and tissues.

The oil contains high levels of linolenic acid — an unsaturated fatty acid that temporarily eases joint pain — and oleic acid, which has a local, anti-inflammatory effect on the dermal tissues.

Anti-viral, anti-bacterial emu oil is also beneficial for healing burns, diminishing scarring, and improving the flexibility of skin after surgery.

Many medical specialists and professional sports teams are adopting the non-oily, odor-free oil into their treatment techniques.
