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
as you transition from student to practitioner - and beyond.

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.

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.

My name is Nema Nyar, a massage therapist and bodyworker with 30 years experience, deeply involved in the study of yoga science.

I was, and continue to be, amazed by the increase of function people experience when their scars are released.

There is no shortage of scars, just a shortage of scar releasers. 

MSTR® is a simple-to-learn yet highly effective method of remodeling scars. I teach at the

Himalayan Institute, a retreat center in beautiful northeast Pennsylvania. 

I would be honored to initiate you into this work.


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.

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.

MSTR® è sbalorditivo per i risultati che riesce ad ottenere.

Fa parte ormai del mio lavoro quotidiano. 

Lavorando sulle cicatrici, aiuta le persone ad ottenere benefici fisico/estetici ma anche ad eliminare blocchi emotivo/emozionali.

Sono davvero entusiasta dell’incontro con Alastair e dell’opportunità concessami di poter insegnare in Italia questa sbalorditiva ed efficacissima tecnica alle varie figure che si interessano di terapia manuale.

Having a special interest in women’s health I was frequently having discussions with mums about their C-section scars. There was a general feeling that this was simply something they had to live with.Were issues with scar tissue really something that people had to put up with?

Thankfully I discovered MTSR®!

I am genuinely impressed by the level of research, resources and support provided to practitioners, instructors, and students of MTSR®.

I look forward to seeing you in class and teaching you this gentle yet highly effective therapy.


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.

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.

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.
