Scar Release



They are composed of fibrin, collagen, ground substance and the activity of myofibroblasts. Scars form and mature in 4 phases: (1) Inflammatory, (2) Granulation, (3) Proliferation (4) Maturation


1) Inflammation: lasting 24-48 hours post injury, best to immobilize


2) Granulation: lasting around 3 weeks depending on the extent of the injury. During this phase scar increases vascularity and moderate mobilization is advised.


3) Proliferation: also called fibroblastic, lasting 3-8 weeks and significant mobilization is tolerated and needed to shape the scar. During this phase much collagen and ground substance is laid down, and the myofibroblasts go to work shrinking the scar. Remodeling and stretching is most effective in this phase.


4) Maturation: lasting from 21 days to 2 years. Remodeling is very difficult in this phase due to the shrinking of the tissue and the significant reduction in cellular metabolism.


What happens when a scar is years past the maturation phase? Well, it is stuck to the edges of whatever the injury involved. If a surgery, then there are deep scar adhesions which may or may not be stuck to internal organs affecting their function and possibly causing discomfort.


Old scars CAN be remodeled with good old fashioned myofascial stretching, but they usually need a pit of “Priming” at a cellular level to facilitate their cooperation.


Priming techniques include: (1) Dolphin Neurostim**, (2) Cold Laser, (3) Nutrition


1) Dolphin Neurostim**: low frequency (2.5Hz), low amplitude (<1millivolt), Direct Current. This technique restores the correct resting polarity (-) to uninjured skin and scar which is (+) at the scar's maturation. This technique  also increases cellular ATP improving its metabolism


2) Cold Laser: 660nm of coherent light to facilitate cellular metabolism and hasten the uptake of nutrients.


3) Nutrition: The addition of specifically pure processed wheat germ oil fortified with vitamin e applied topically.




Tattoos are superficial scars and do change in surface polarity as well. The larger the surface area of skin involved, the more it up-regulates the sympathetic nervous system stimulating a more dominant “fight or flight” response. This can feel like increased anxiety. The Dolphin Neurostim is used to balance this and restore nervous system equilibrium.


SCARS are a universal experience taking on many forms. They can be due to surgery, broken bones, sprained joints, torn muscles, inflammation, or any areas that are injured with trauma. Every one of us accumulate scars throughout our lives, and they impact our bodies in many very negative ways.

The Center for Pain & Stress Research has developed a patented new Scar Release Therapy (SRT), a safe, clinically tested and proven solution. SRT is simple & painless to apply and is highly effective in reducing the negative influences of scars. Scar and the  related adhesions often compress nerves, restrict muscle function, change energy flow, and affect blood and lymph flow through the affected area.  (link to our website-scar page at this link )

This incredibly healing treatment:

  1. Speeds up the healing process of the scar

  2. Decreases pain in the connective tissue

  3. Helps to relax and fade scar tissue

​​SRT uses current advances in medical science to address both chronic pain as well as the dermal scarring that form after every trauma or surgery. SRT applies Micro­current Point Stimulation which is a patented and state of the art medical treatment rooted in the science of increasing skin’s inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and inherent healing function to re-awaken the skin’s ability to self-generate as nature intended.

By targeting cellular stimulation, with microcurrent applied directly through the scars, this simple and discomfort free procedure reduces dermal trauma, adhesions and fascial restrictions –and is proven to deliver 73.2% pain relief after a single application. (IJCAM 2017) SRT may be safely applied clinically or at home. (link to our studies/research at )

What to Expect

The technique involves the simultaneous application of a safe and very low-intensity electrical impulse to each side of the physical scar. This microcurrent will soften and slowly fade the scar tissue, improving the function of muscles, fascia, and improving local circulation.

​This speeds up the healing process, particularly in C-section scars, allowing new mothers to return to/continue with lifting, walking, exercise and taking care of baby with considerably less discomfort.

​The number of sessions is determined by the depth and healing capacity of the scar, and your registered practitioner will guide you regarding this during the evaluation. Scar tissue & adhesions can often be released in as little as 3-4 visits, and usually have drastic improvement in appearance, color, soreness, and tissue mobility of the within 1-3 sessions.

In Summary

We are able to visually change the appearance and mobility of scars in one treatment session! Scars that we often treat include those from breast augmentation or reduction or mastectomy, C-section, removal of deep moles or skin lesions, facelifts, trauma scars, and all surgical scars. No matter how old the scar is, we can usually make significant physical changes!
