Scar Release Therapy with Dolphin Neurostim

The Dolphin Neurostim™ is an innovative technology that uses Microcurrent point stimulation (MPS) therapy to quickly and effectively treat scars both new and old. 

It is especially effective at promoting healing, releasing adhesions, reducing pain and improving the appearance of the scar.  

Two units are used for the process applying a small, low level current along the length of the scar to help loosen and break up the scar tissue. The Dolphin Neurostim™ is both Health Canada and FDA approved making it a safe option for scar release. 

Scars Negative Influence:

  • Chronic pain 
  • Activate Stress - Up-regulate the Sympathetic Nervous System
  • Create internal adhesions inside the body 
  • Impede Lymphatic and circulatory flow 
  • Restrict Functional Movements through pulling of the fascia 
  • Lock in emotions of the trauma in the cells 

Benefits of reducing Scar Tissue: 

  • Immediate reduction of pain around the scar 
  • Improved sensation of the skin reducing any numbness/tingling 
  • Speeds up the healing process of the scar tissue enhancing recovery 
  • Diminished scar size
  • Increased stretch and reduced tightness of the scar tissue allowing for improved mobility 
  • Improved blood flow and circulation 

Scars have different electrical properties than the surrounding skin. Normal skin tissue holds a resting electrical charge of 80mV, and scars can be 20 times this voltage and can have a positive polarity. This newly formed bioelectrical altered scar tissue emits ongoing silent but turbulent signals into the Sympathetic Nervous System leading to the activation of STRESS. 

Treating the scars using the Dolphin Neurostim™ can help to re-polarize the new scar tissue back to normal to improve cellular signalling and blood flow.

What kind of Scars can be treated?

  • C-Sections
  • Tummy tuck scars
  • Breast scars/Mastectomy scars
  • Gallbladder/Appendectomy
  • Hysterectomy 
  • Hernia scars

C-Sections are the most common surgery in the world! These scars have shown to lead to a multitude of health problems including chronic post surgical pain, back pain, shoulder/neck pain and neuropathic pain. 

Whether trying to return back to exercise or day to day activities after surgery there is a safe and effective option to heal your scar and get you back to doing the things you love!


How Many Sessions are needed?

The number of sessions is determined by the depth and healing capacity of the scar. On average 3-5 treatments are needed.

What are the contraindications?

  • Being pregnant
  • Having a cardiac pacemaker
  • Epilepsy/Seizures
  • Cancer/Tumour around the area   

Is it safe?

The Dolphin Neurostimulation is thousands of times less in strength than traditional AC TENS devices and is therefore far safer – and far more effective – in the treatment of chronic and acute pain.

Is it safe to use on a knee or hip replacement?

YES - metal is not a contraindication and it is safe to use. 

Does it hurt?

Most people find the stimulation to be painless with a slight feeling of warmth. The more dense the tissue, the more sensation can be felt with a slight tingling sensation.
