The Liedler Concept: 3-part course series with certificate of completion

Michaela Liedler – Centre for Postsurgical Scar Therapy

Advanced course on the Liedler Concept

In a three-part advanced course on the Liedler Concept (LK), curious and courageous body therapists, medical practitioners, osteopaths, physiotherapists, masseurs and midwives will be made aware of the healing processes of the abdominal cavity and their significance for the rest of the body, as well as being taught how to deal comprehensively with postoperative scars, fascial and peritoneal adhesions in the superficial and deep tissue layers. Each course includes a high practical component with voluntary patients, so that what is learned can be put into practice immediately under supervision and the first sense of achievement can be experienced.

Module 1

Module 1 focuses on the healing processes and the basic knowledge of the Liedler Concept (principle and grip techniques) in order to be able to grasp postsurgical scars appropriately.

Module 2

In the 2nd module the techniques are extended and the treatment repertoire is further deepened, as well as the home exercise training for the patients.

Module 3

In the 3rd module, the focus is on embedding the scar into the body in the best possible way in order to prevent possible compensations or to dissolve them again.

The module ends with a practical treatment on the patient to check whether the grip techniques and the Liedler concept can be implemented accordingly. Afterwards, the therapist receives a certificate that entitles him/her to be registered in the current LK therapist list and to identify him/herself as an LK therapist on his/her own website.

LK – Part 1 – Basis


  • Knowledge of the differences between scars, adhesions and adhesions.
  • Knowledge of physiology and pathophysiology of wound healing
  • Knowledge of the specifics of peritoneal wound healing – Development of adhesions
  • Knowledge of physiological sliding behaviour of tissue
  • Liedler Concept – what is it about, what makes the difference, the principle of treatment, Punctum fixum-Punctum mobile; application of local techniques (LT) and scar articulation techniques (NART)
  • LK scar test – detecting local/peripheral interference fields
  • Different levels of scars (scar, fascial adhesion, peritoneal adhesion).


  • Shovel grip
  • LK scar test
  • Treat superficial and deep layers of scars and adhesions (LT 1,2)
  • Feeling and releasing postsurgical adhesions (NART 1)
  • Application of the principle Punctum fixum-Punctum mobile for the restoration of tissue accompanying layers

    + Supervised treatment on the patient

LK – Part 2 – Extension


  • Review of part 1 and clarification of questions
  • Deepening of physiology and pathophysiology of wound healing: effects of mechanical tension on individual tissue components
  • Review of features of peritoneal wound healing: the role of the fibrinolytic system
  • Pain as a guide in treatment with the Liedler Concept


  • Findings and practice on the patient: LT, NART, SN techniques
  • Treatment of the different levels of scars, integration of the surrounding joints into the treatment
  • Deepening: Findings and treatment of superficial and deep layers of fascial and peritoneal adhesions
  • Home exercise training for the patient

    + + supervised treatment on the patient

LK – Part 3 – Inclusion


  • Space for questions on LK 1+2
  • Compensation mechanisms of the body: force transmission in the fascial system, diaphragms and their importance for the body, pressure regulation in the abdominal cavity
  • Integration of the scar into the body: scar integration techniques (NET)
  • The visceral midline – pivot of deep abdominal breathing
  • Roadmap for the treatment of young and old surgical scars
  • Scar and trauma – a first approach: physiological processes in the brain


  • Findings and practice on the patient
  • Recognition of interference fields – repetition of the scar test
  • Drawing up a treatment plan
  • NET Techniques: Integration into the diaphragm (NET D) and fascial longitudinal system (NET L)
  • Visceral Midline
  • Trauma: Approach to scars with traumatic background events

Conclusion: Theoretical test and treatment on the patient according to the Liedler Concept
