About STAR Tech

What is STAR Tech®?
            Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique, or STAR Tech®, is a fast and effective system for treating the body's soft tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. It is a valuable healing tool for both acute and chronic soft tissue conditions which involve pain, inflammation and injuries. It is also a successful maintenance tool for soft tissue.
            Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique is a remarkable healing system. Trained professional practitioners offer STAR Tech® treatments, and untrained individuals can apply STAR Tech® on themselves on a limited basis as well.
            Much of the soft tissue (muscle) pain that we suffer daily is pain that can be eliminated by the relatively simple methods of STAR Tech®.
            STAR  Tech® treatments are offered to the public by its developer, Barry Bailey, MS,  LMT at his Therapeutic Massage Office in Maynard, Massachusetts. This office also serves the nearby communities of Stow, Concord, Sudbury,  Acton, Hudson, Marlborough, Boxborough and Bolton. Additional Therapists in other communities offer STAR  Tech®  treatments as well.

 How STAR Tech® Works
             STAR Tech® makes use of the body’s incredible built-in ability to self-heal. STAR Tech® uses the Mind-Body Connection to accomplish remarkable changes to soft tissue. The healing comes from deep within the body, naturally, using what Herbert Benson MD calls “Remembered Wellness”. The body WANTS to be well, and STAR Tech® provides the information and environment for the body to self-heal quickly and efficiently. STAR Tech® stimulates the body to do what it was meant to do, heal itself. Recovery is a completely natural process.
            Research has shown that movement provides a better healing environment than non-movement in many instances. STAR Tech® utilizes movement to remind the body that healing should take place. By using specific movement, pressure and breathing, soft tissue is identified  through a Mind-Body connection and provided with the information and environment it needs in order to self-heal.

What STAR Tech® Does
             STAR Tech® effectively addresses problems involving soft tissue including muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. STAR Tech®, reorganizes and balances soft tissue, and speeds the recovery process for muscle tightness and pain, chronic muscle spasms, inflammation, injuries, trigger points, scar tissue and adhesions.
            STAR Tech® restores soft tissue to as close to its original condition as is possible. Scar tissue becomes thinner and more flexible and adhesions are broken up permanently with the use of STAR Tech®. The length of time a person has suffered a soft tissue injury or pain makes little difference when receiving a STAR Tech® treatment. So long as that soft tissue was at one time “normal”, the body remembers, and initiates the recovery process. Healing is often permanent. In some special cases, healing can even be instant.

Why STAR Tech® Works
            STAR Tech® works fast because the brain works fast and recovery takes place through messages sent from the brain. STAR Tech® is based on the same Mind-Body connection mechanism that makes Active Isolated Stretching and its modification, Pump Stretching, so effective. By using motion and manual tension, fast and often permanent re-organization of soft tissue is possible.
            Because healing is so fast, one treatment will accomplish measurable results if STAR Tech® is going to be an effective treatment tool.

Who Can Use STAR Tech®?
            Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique can be practiced  by anyone who has a background in anatomy and has a  working knowledge of muscles and other soft tissue. Professional Practitioners of STAR Tech® may include Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Doctors, Reflexologists, Fitness Trainers and Coaches. Workshops are available to learn how to do STAR Tech®. See Workshops for Professionals.
            A number of STAR Tech® applications are also possible to do as a self-healing treatment. Individuals with no background in anatomy or training in bodywork can learn how to self-heal using the techniques that are a part of STAR Tech®. To learn about workshops that teach self-healing techniques see Workshops for the Public. The Public Workshops also present valuable information that can be used by Professionals who are offering STAR Tech® treatments to clients or patients.

How STAR Tech® is Used?
            Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique is an effective treatment for jaw, neck, shoulder, arm, hand, back, hip, leg, knee, ankle and foot pain, to list some general uses. Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique treatments address the entire body. For a more specific and complete listing of what STAR Tech® can do, see STAR Tech® Treatments.

 Additional Uses for STAR Tech®

 STAR Tech® Used as General and Post Treatment Maintenance
            Soft Tissue Active Recovery Technique is an effective healing and maintenance tool. Used post-treatment or as an every day maintenance technique, STAR Tech® takes the body into healing mode and encourages it to remain there, acting as a gateway to general improved good health. STAR Tech® acts as a reminder to the body to process the self-healing of which the body is capable of doing. In doing so, STAR Tech® strengthens the Mind-Body Connection.

  STAR Tech® for Athletes
            STAR Tech® is an excellent protocol to add to traditional Athlete Self-Maintenance and Sports Massage. STAR Tech® quickly increases and maintains flexibility and range-of motion. Athletes are able to train and perform harder and longer when STAR Tech® is used as part of their treatment and maintenance program.
            STAR Tech® is an effective treatment for sports injuries. Injuries heal faster when STAR Tech® is used as a part of the rehabilitation protocol.
            STAR Tech® effectively helps prevent re-injury by preventing the buildup of excess scar tissue during healing, and by helping to maintain the strength and flexibility of the muscles involved in an injury during the healing process.

 Your Pain Is Your Choice
           The self-motivated recipient of a STAR Tech® treatment (professionally treated or self-applied) is the individual most likely to see dramatic, positive results.
            Healing is not, and should not be a passive activity. Healing is most effective when the individual who is healing is involved in all aspects of the recovery process. By taking charge and initiating the Mind-Body Connection, you can take responsibility for your health, and amazing results are possible. You become empowered to change your health when you take responsibility for it. By systematically applying the techniques of STAR Tech® or not choosing to apply them, you decide to release yourself from pain’s grip or to remain in pain. Your pain is your choice.

Another Option
            As with any medical treatment, no results are guaranteed when using STAR Tech®. But when the only choices offered you are “You will have to live with the pain”, a life of unrelieved pain, steroid hormone injections, or surgery, STAR Tech® offers another option.
        STAR Tech® treatments may be worth investigating as another method of healing and pain relief.
