Scar Tissue Release And Integrated Therapies

Scar Tissue  – The Damage and The Release

Marjorie Brook is an internationally-recognized bodyworker and pioneer in the field of Scar Tissue Release. Marjorie travels globally offering seminars and lectures on the Scar Tissue Release on Best In Health RadioS.T.R.A.I.T. (Scar Tissue Release And Integrated Therapies) Method, an innovative and ground breaking therapy that works with the body, not against it.  It is her mission to bring awareness to the public about the damaging effect of scar tissue and adhesions.

Recognizing that a simple scar from a childhood fall to major surgery as an adult can have a lifelong physiological and psychological effect on the body, yet is the most ignored and misunderstood part of recovery. Marjorie Brook designed a scar tissue release system that approaches the multi faceted matrix of fascia three dimensionally.

 

 

 

 

Scar tissue from Mastectomy Best In Health RadioAccording to the CDC last year in the United States there were:

  • More than half a million heart surgeries;
  • Approximately 50,000 women a year mastectomies;
  • 307,000 breast implant surgeries;
  • More than 465,000spinal fusions;Scar Tissue from Spinal Fusion Best In Health Radio
  • 498,000Hysterectomies;
  • 1.3 million Cesarean sections;
  • 719,000Total knee replacements;
  • 332,000 Total hip replacements.

 

Despite the high number of surgeries, most patients are never given pre or post surgery protocols to prevent scar tissue formation. A recent study found that 9 out of 10 people who’d had a routine surgical procedure within the past 6 to 12 months were unhappy with their surgical scar, while 7 in 10 felt they were “more concerned than their surgeon was about the scar.”

Scar Tissue Release Best In Health RadioFor many people, Scar Tissue Release therapy is the last chance to avoid surgery or the answer to pain free recovery after all other therapies have failed.  Most are unaware that their body’s functions are being altered by scar tissue or that their ailments and physical limitations can be remedied without the need for surgery or pills. The reason for this is because you’re essentially held together by one huge single sheet of connective tissue, or fascia. This fascia wraps around your entire body like an intricate spider web and influences the way you function — from your muscles and your bones, to your organs, nerves, veins and arteries.  Any kink, pull or restriction in one area can affect everything else. If your movements are restricted, your muscles and your organs will be forced to work harder. If your nerves and vessels are trapped, your circulation can be restricted.

 

“[I] wanted to quickly share the Marjorie Brook love. After attending a seminar I shared my ‘cancer thriver with long term jacked up-ness’ story with Marjorie. It took about 2 seconds for her to invite me back to their room where Marjorie worked her ‘special brand of magic’ on my neck scar and jaw. After 16 1/2 years, I can once again feel cold and heat on my neck. My nagging left SI joint is now happy. I can speak like a ‘normal’ person. My face is thinner. My nose is back to the center of my face. My sinuses are clear. I can HEAR out of my right ear (had no idea I wasn’t hearing well out of that ear for 16 years). In short, Marjorie changed my life. Excuse me while I go bawl like a big ol’ baby . . . Again. If you or anyone you love (or even remotely care about) needs scar tissue work, Marjorie is the one to see.” Karen Rossler, Washington D.C.

 

Marjorie works with all ages and professions (from the corporate desk bound to serious athletes).  Issues such as breast reconstruction/implants/reductions, childhood injuries, C-sections and all surgeries, no matter the age of the scar (3 months to 50 years old)  can be released. Utilizing the S.T.R.A.I.T. Method, she is able to focus on releasing restricted tissues Scar Tissueto restore full range of motion and eliminating pain and congestion in the body. Marjorie’s private practice is located on Long Island and she travels throughout the US, Europe & Canada  sharing her work so others can learn this beneficial technique.
A previous client with arthritis in both shoulders came for treatment once she had tried all other types of therapy ranging from shots, exercises and acupuncture. She had this to say about Marjorie’s scar tissue work:

 

“I did not know that my life was about to change. I went to a vascular specialist and an acupuncturist, neither could alleviate my pain. Then I met Marjorie. Marjorie saw the condition of my leg and explained to me about scar tissue therapy and how it worked. She concentrated on my leg during the first massage and I was amazed at the immediate results. The pain had subsided and it was easier to walk. After a year of coming every other week I am completely pain free. The results of her treatment changed my life. Not only for my leg but because of the overall stress relieving therapeutic experience. This therapy was the best gift I ever received!” Donna Tally, Long Island, NY

What Is Cancer? Our Cellular HTML

What is Cancer? Think of it as a virus to our cellular HTML

What is  Cancer – No – Life does not cause cancer as some think.  This thought often engrains a sense of helplessness within. The truth is, if we understand what cancer is, it helps us better understand prevention – give ourselves control and motivation…

A life to prevent cancer is a life to prevent all of our chronic illnesses, and infuses us with energy & power.   Think of cancer as a virus that has messed with the HTML of or cell’s genetic code.

Take a look at a beautiful website – say this one…..behind every beautiful site is HTML HyperText Markup Language, the “mother tongue” of our web browsers. Behind our being, is genetic code that dictates every cell of who we are. If we have one wrong little character in the HTML of our website it can completely destroy the function of that website. Well, the same is true for our genetic code.

What Is Cancer Health Coaching Best In Health RadioNow, what is cancer? Cancer is a genetic mutation, something has reprogrammed the HTML of that cell. That cell is now reproducing incorrectly.  If our ecosystem is unable to shut that cell down, there is trouble. If our ecosystem is not optimized, the genetic saboteur is allowed to reproduce, and that deadly coding is reproduced. Here lies the problem why people think “life causes cancer”….

In our “advanced” world….we have created thousands of potential mutagens to destroy cell stability

Our bodies are a wonderland. Wonderland has an inner ecosystem that like any ecosystem needs to be kept in balance.  Chinese medicine describes our flow of Qi. Without the flow of Qi, our life’s force, the ecosystem is jolted out of balance.

We live in a world that is constantly bombarding our ecosystem.  Many times we are responsible for that attack: smoking, poor food choices, lack of physical activity…. And many times we do not know we are exposed to attacks on that biochemical terrain. Enter illness and disease.

Cancer is thought to be only 5-10% genetic. The rest is lifestyle, however, as mentioned above, our lifestyles consist of unknown as well as known carcinogens…..exposures that cause a cell to mutate.

Now……how magical are the powers of the right exercise? Exercise and nutrition are our body guards. When carcinogens attack, by empowering our body with the strongest possible biochemical terrain, one that is totally inhospitable to mutagens, we are able to fight the attacker and win.

Attackers (aka carcinogens and pathogens):

Certain chemicals (in our food, in our air, in our meds, in our soils……..)

Viruses and bacteria

Geophysical exposures, radiation

Hormonal imbalances…..including our big wide world of phytoestrogens endocrine disrupters

Some nasty lifestyle choices: smoking, sitting, poor food choices, stress, alcohol….

Our body depends on us to supply it with sustenance to empower the ecosystem

Nutrition…the right exercise optimizes our digestive system for absorption of the good and destruction of the bad

Exercise

Physical activity

Sleep

Minimize exposure to carcinogens, mutagens, pathogens

When the body is unable to fight intruders, that is when the biochemical terrain allows mutated cells, aka cancer cells, to reproduce…and reproduce……until “we have cancer”. It is believed that everyone of us have cancerous cells lurking within, our goal is that we have the defences to shut down those cells, or force what is called aptosis – cell suicide.

Front and center to the body’s defences are our immune and circulatory systems.

What is Cancer: Medical Exercise Health Coaching Best In Health RadioOur immune system is a pumpless system.  In other words, it can produce all of the wonderful superheroes in the world (lymphocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, immunoglobins….) but if there is no pumping action from our muscles, or no muscles, the immune system can’t do its job.

Exercise is imperative for optimizing our body’s performance. Every study shows us that exercise and physical activity are an absolute necessity for every organ system of the body, and a necessity, dare I say the “managing partner” to integrative oncology.

Exercise is vital to the destruction of cancer at every level:

Prevention: enabling the body to kill those intrusions, to build a strong inner ecosystem

Management: make it through treatment, minimizing risks of side effects of treatment, fighting fatigue, and many studies tell us help better respond to treatment, building back musculoskeletal challenges created by the cancer and the treatment.

Prevention of recurrence. Rebuilding and equipping the immune system

A topic for another article is exercise at the cellular level, which is vital for prevention, recovery, and prevention of recurrence….and anti aging and anti all of our chronic illnesses….the real science geek, yes, however, this really helps us understand cancer prevention & management.

Let’s summarize…..

What is cancer? Cancer occurs because their has been a genetic mutation, a change to the genetic code. The body has been attacked..the body needs to fight the attacker.

  • The right exercise enables the body to fight that invasion, through it’s many magical ways, some known, and we still have many ways yet to discover.
  • Food Choices are critical in either feeding or destroying cancer cells
  • Being aware of environmental exposures, choices
  • Eliminating oxidative stressors
  • Lifestyle choices

yes….much is within our control
