Scar tissue is created when new cell layers form after an injury or surgery. It can cause profound physical and emotional problems.
ScarWork is a hands-on, gentle therapy that uses specialised techniques to soften the tissue and help fade the scar.
The light, non-invasive techniques include multi-directional skin stretches, strokes and digital or palm pressure that help reorganise the fascia and integument in both new and old scar tissue.
After treatment, scars often appear smaller, flatter, lighter and less prominent. In addition to the positive physical changes, it can also lead to improvements in psychological and emotional wellbeing. This holistic therapy can begin following a post-operative check-up, approximately six to eight weeks post-surgery. It is never too late to start work on a scar; remarkable changes to 40-year-old scar tissue are commonplace. Nerve impairment such as numbness, pain, itching, irritation and extreme sensitivity may also improve as blood circulation, and the lymphatic and nervous systems are stimulated. An additional benefit of ScarWork is an improved function and movement in scars, the surrounding tissue and joints.
