In this article we will dive into how the skin and fascia, our protective barrier to the outside world, is key to the function of our nervous system, how scars can severely disrupt critical communication within this system, and how Scar Release Therapy using microcurrent point stimulation (MPS) can help release these hidden barriers and restore the flow of information throughout the body.
Do you struggle to not wobble, feel dizzy or stay steady and if so, how can you achieve better balance? Balance is the ability of an individual to control their center of gravity in order to remain upright. It is context specific, meaning balance is influenced by the environment, the person, and the task.
