Scarwork therapy

This technique can be used within a treatment session or booked as a stand alone treatment, working a specific area.

Scar work is a non-invasive treatment working with the fascia matrix of the surrounding skin of the scar and the scar itself. It is used to improve the appearance, feel and texture of the scar and the surrounding area. It can help to reduce pain, numbness and mobility of the scar by reducing the adhesions in the underlying tissue. It can help to stimulate the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems to encourage renewed healing and promote improved tissue health.

Post session scars can appear smaller, less tight, with a smoother feel, and indents improved. All healed scars can be worked on, with most having visible improvement quickly, however some may take a little time and need several treatments.

Sometimes we may not even realise the restrictions the scar has been causing until the tissue has been worked on and released. I have had several clients who have had treatment to mastectomy scars and found their range of movement improved in their shoulder, and clients with old C section scars and hysterectomy scars which were causing restrictions within the groin or limiting their involvement in exercise.

I have had great results from working with scars and would highly recommend booking a half hour session just to see whether this will make a difference to you. You will know after one session whether this is for you or not!
