What is The STRAIT Method™
The STRAIT Method™ (short for Scar Tissue Release And Integrated Therapies) is an innovative approach to healing that incorporates mind AND body. It is a three-dimensional, fascial-release system that works to minimize scar-tissue development and the subsequent physiological restrictions. Adhered tissues are released and then realigned from their starting point, which is the visible scar, to their end point — where the line of frozen fascia stops. No matter how new or old your scar, Scar Tissue Release Therapy can help.
Understanding fascia 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 STRAIT 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.
Benefits of scar-tissue release therapy:
There are multiple reasons to undergo scar tissue release therapy.
- Lessens the appearance of scars
- Helps to prevent and reduce adhesions forming after injury or surgery
- Restore nerve function including numbness, pain and sensitivity
- Reduce pain and restriction (including cording and dragging)
- Helps to relieve stress on the body from fascial tension
- Improves flexibility
- Reduces muscle spasms
- Promotes balance in the body
- Helps maintain good posture
- Improves athletic performance
- Reduces the risk of muscle tears and strains
- Improves the flow of oxygen and nutrients through the body
- Helps regain and maintain a full range of joint movement
- Stimulates lymph circulation
- Reduces the possibility of long-term problems due to fascial adhesions
