Scar Tissue Release And Integrated Therapies (the S.T.R.A.I.T. Method™) was developed by Marjorie Brook, LMT.
It is the rehabilitative scar treatment everyone deserves, designed to help your client heal, restore freedom of movement, and regain quality of life.

The therapy begins with a series of fascial techniques that release and realign the restrictive tissue from the starting point (visible scar) to the endpoint (where the line of frozen fascia stops).

Client/patient experiences relief from the years of pain they’ve endured by finally having their adhesions and scars addressed.

Much more than scar tissue treatment Depart from the traditional methods you’ve tried with a therapy that approaches the multi-faceted matrix of fascia three-dimensionally. After scar tissue release therapy, we will take a holistic approach to healing with stretching, strengthening, and body mechanic exercises to help your client/patient find balance.

You learn to treat every detail, from the scar’s appearance to its physiological and psychological impacts. We address each of these components throughout the scar tissue treatment process to ensure your client’s journey is customized to their physical and mental well-being needs.

The relief they’ve been waiting for each scar is different, so we begin by learning about the damaged and restricted connective tissue and the resulting compensations in the body.

You learn recognize and give support tailored to the client’s mind-body interactions and unique body mechanics to achieve an integrative treatment for scar tissue designed just for them.

The S.T.R.A.I.T. Method™ incorporates every element of the healing journey, aligning the therapist’s expertise with the individual needs and goals of the client/patient. You will improve their mobility and sensation while ensuring they are on track to regain quality of life and get back to the activities they love.
