Meet The Team

Our fine team of MSTR® instructors have been selected by me for their
passion, experience and dedication for this specialised form of body work for healthcare professionals. 

They are all enthusiastic and motivated to convey this
potentially life-changing work to you in the same manner as myself. 

You can depend on their support and encouragement

Hvaležna sem, da sem lahko del ekipe inštruktorjev za neverjetno tehniko McLoughlin Scar Tissue ® (MSTR®).

Če bi opisala tehniko v nekaj besedah, bi rekla, da je preprosta, nežna in učinkovita.


Ko se boste naučili MSTR® tehniko in jo začeli uporabljati, boste dosegali rezultate, za katere niste mislili, da so možni.

Comecei o meu caminho em cuidados de saúde como terapeuta de Bowen.

Aceitei o desafio que o Alastair me lançou de ensinar outros terapeutas, das mais variadas áreas, a adicionarem às suas ferramentas de trabalho o MSTR®  porque acredito que esta ferramenta é crítica em alguns casos e muda a condição do cliente de uma forma sólida e permanente.

Sou uma instrutora jovial, pragmática, acredito que os exemplos práticos são a melhor forma de conseguir envolver os meus formandos e enriqueço as minhas sessões com a minha experiência quotidiana.

The great thing about MSTR® is that it works. And it works well. 

It has become an invaluable every-day tool in my clinic and one my whole treatment plan can very often be centred around.

Helping people is what we do and what we love. And if I can help people to help more people, well that’s a bonus and a massive honour.

As an advocate of alternative health, I am excited about the results I’m seeing when using MSTR®. Both the simplicity of this release and the profound, life-changing results are amazing. 

As an MSTR® student, I was impressed with Alastair, his love of people, and his willingness to help us learn.

As an MSTR® instructor, I am passionate about sharing this valuable tool for healing with others.

The MSTR® technique is a complex concept, yet simple to perform, and brings a myriad of benefits.

I feel honoured to be selected as a member of the instructors team for Alastair McLoughlin and his amazing McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release® technique (MSTR®).

Scar tissue release is an important piece of work that will transform your client's life.  You will find MSTR® to be an invaluable addition to your toolbox in helping your clients and your loved ones. I look forward to sharing MSTR® with you soon.


Paula Esson

United Kingdom and Greece, Iceland, Ireland

Scar work is an area which has been "weirdly" missed in the practitioner's toolset until recently it seems.


We have worked the fascia and understood many aspects of therapeutic changes that can occur but MSTR® has an intriguing and profound affect on the person as a whole.


I believe in freedom and in essence - this is what MSTR® is all about. Feeling whole and free again.


Scott Barrett

I am currently living and working as a Neuromuscular Therapist in Wellington, New Zealand.

Over the course of my time using MSTR® I have seen changes in range of motion treating adhesive capsulitis, changes in bowel function and low back pain from treating Cesarean sections as well as emotional relief from reduced symptoms, and massive psychological and cosmetic changes in a client with 10% partial thickness burns to her body. The use of MSTR® is heartfelt and versatile, with a range of applications for use.

Tina Hull

United States of America

I am passionate about MSTR® !

When I decided to change careers, I went looking for something that WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of others. 

I wanted something that had tangible, lasting results where other things maybe didn’t work so well. I didn’t think I would ever find something as profound as MSTR®.


I absolutely love it’s glorious simplicity followed by its miraculous results!!!!

Moje ime je Adriana Markanović. Živim i radim u istočnom dijelu Hrvatske, u Vinkovcima. Radim već 20 godina kao fizioterapeut. 

Ono što je mene oduševilo je koliko tako nježna tehnika u tako malo vremena može učiniti promjena na tkivu, poboljšati pokretljivost i kvalitetu života. MSTR® je savršena nadopuna vašem znanju, te se lako uklapa u druge oblike terapije.


Alison Edge


I am a Remedial Massage Therapist and Lymphoedema Practitioner. I run a busy clinic on the NSW Central Coast.

Since becoming a therapist, my love for learning about the human body has continued and taken me to many different things. By far, my favourite thing has been learning the MSTR® from Alastair McLoughlin. I use this technique every day in my clinic and cannot wait to show you the countless ways it can help your clients too.

I am based in Melbourne, Victoria and I started my journey of learning soft tissue therapies in the 90’s.  

MSTR® has been an incredibly valuable skill to learn.  I feel we can address scar tissue itself, and also it’s potential, often complex, impact on our clients with this versatile technique.


MSTR® is effective, efficient and expedient.  It is valuable as a stand alone treatment, or integrated with your existing tools, into your treatment approach.   It’s an excellent technique for facilitating change.

Jaine Konarik


My desire to help my clients more, to get better outcomes for them and to get results that were whole body focussed lead me to MSTR®.  MSTR® has given me the opportunity to see and experience life changing results for clients.

Being a perpetual student and an instructor, I like to create a learning environment that is relaxed, supportive and practical.

To have the privilege and honour of facilitating life changing wellness is humbling. I look forward to seeing you in a MSTR® workshop soon.

I discovered MSTR® in 2017 and I continue to see amazing results when using this as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with the muscle release modalities.

I practice full time out of two locations. I currently teach primarily in Minnesota and I am looking to expand into other states.

I am a passionate advocate for MSTR® work because I see the positive impact it has on clients almost every day.

As the founder of a busy, successful clinic, I look after people with a myriad of conditions, and MSTR® work will often feature in their treatment plan. 

Given that I get 92% of my clients through referrals, I know MSTR® and the other techniques I use really work. It’s my mission to empower other practitioners to deliver this transformative treatment too.


Mădălina Sandu


Mă numesc Sandu Mădălina Ionela, sunt fiziokinetoterapeut și terapeut McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release (MSTR®) în Cluj-Napoca.


În practica mea medicală vin foarte des în contact cu persoane care ar putea beneficia de efectele acestei tehnici manuale.


Având în vedere că abordarea mea terapeutică include și țesutul miofascial, MSTR® a venit ca o completare care face diferența când ne lovim de implicațiile țesutului cicatriceal. 


Monika Lindblom


Jag har under mina drygt 20 år som terapeut och utbildare inom kroppsterapier och naturmedicin aldrig tidigare sett en behandlingsform med så snabba och hållbara resultat!

Eftersom ett obehandlat ärr kan skapa problem var som helst i kroppen, inte bara där ärret sitter, rekommenderar jag numera alla mina klienter att få sina ärr behandlade.


Jag har sett symptom försvinna, som klienten inte alls har kopplat ihop med ärrvävnaden.


Peta Crogan


Like many, my first experience with MSTR® blew my mind. It was painless, quick and profoundly changing. 

I have over 25 years’ experience in the natural health and medical industries, with Pathology, Oncobiology and Ayurveda supporting my MSTR® work. 

I have been running workshops for the past 5 years and am excited to bring my experience and passion to MSTR®.


Silke Lauth


My name is Silke Lauth. I live and work in Bad Nauheim, Hessen.


In my practice, MSTR® has become an indispensable additional tool. Every scar that I have treated so far has shown clear changes and improvements for my clients.


No matter if numb or painful, white or red, thick or knotty ... with no other technique have I achieved such quick and lasting success.

With Alastair McLoughlin, I help administer the MSTR® office.


Tibor Szatmári


Numele meu este Tibor Szatmári, sunt specialist în recuperare medicală/fiziokinetoterapeut și formator MSTR® (McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release) în Bucureşti.


În cazuistica cu care lucrez, predomină leziunile postchirurgicale si posttraumatice. Cicatricea și țesutul cicatricial, in cazurile respective joacă un rol foarte important atât în păstrarea calității vieții cât și funcțional respectiv estetico-emoțional. 

Această nouă abordare a venit ca și o tehnică ajutătoare în ceea ce privește vindecarea lor.
