When a scar occurs during the process of tissue repair there is always contracture and adhesion.
This results in shortening of the tissue due to the contracture, and the feeling of tightness or dragging due to adhesions.
Emotional release often happens with this scar work and can give amazing benefit for stress and depression.
Scar Tissue Work is primarily about reducing pain and improving function, there are many layers to the scar tissue therefore scars often effect underlying organs and tissues in the body.
I have trained in:
McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release
Sharon Wheeler's ScarWork
Adapting ScarWork for Breast surgery
The aim of all ScarWork treatment is to:
Reduce pain and restriction
Reduce adhesions – both superficially and deep within the system
Restore nerve function including numbness, pain and sensitivity
Enhance movement of the surrounding tissues, to reduce pulling and sticking
After work the scar may visually appear smoother, but the emphasis is on the underlying tissue changes within the fascial system and therefore improved function.
It’s never too late:
Very old scars still respond well to scar work, new scars can be treated if they are fully healed, dry and infection free. All scars can be worked on using these Scar tissue releases.
