    Helen’s research is extremely compelling and relevant. I love how you are using it. This entire concepts deems grants and research to say the least.

    After watching this video, and sending it to my young and “gung ho” female physio, we decided to try this technique on myself. I have a 30 year old scar from a deep cut below my big toe, in the pad under the first metartarsal. At the time the doctor did a quick stitch job, and the nerves and tissue were just poked back in. My toe has always been stiff and nervy, and recently the whole plantar fascia has been tight and painful. Anyway, we performed the accupuncure for scarred fascia, as shown in your video, on half the scar that was above the sole line, 2 days ago. The results were immediate. That half of the scar now feels loose and no longer nervy. My physio is reluctant to needle past the sole line, because traditionally that is a no go zone. Do you think we should try? Yes, it was painful, but worth it. I have been having massages, fascial release and exercises for the past 3 years, form whomever I could find with any knowledge, but the plantar fascia was not improving where the scar was. We are in Queensland Australia, so thank you Dr Spina for your great blogs. Maybe one day soon you can come here and do some seminars. Australia is just waking up to these techniques, and I am happily waving the flag to anyone who will listen. But it’s not easy. As you can tell, I am not a professional health person, just a 63 year old woman who thinks there must be better ways to keep well than pills and elective surgery.

      Hello

      I am glad to hear that the technique has provided you with some relief. Regarding your question regarding the sole line…the site of the puncture is not as important as the destination of the needle. You can have her puncture at the sole line on an angle such that the needle can be threaded through the tissue to the desired area. Then the technique can be applied as before.

      I hope this helps
      Regards
