Scars of any age can lead to compensation movements and misalignment. ScarWork works gently on the area. Restoring hydration deep in the fascia enables tissues to glide across each other once again and helps release ‘stuck’ postural patterns. This brings about an improvement in range of movement. These changes are usually permanent and changes continue as the body adapts after the session.
An improvement in nerve sensation and numbness is often experienced as dense fascial adhesions are reduced allowing the body to continue its own healing process.
The light touch of the ScarWork approach makes it suitable for all patients including children. Nearly all scars are suitable for this type of treatment but a few examples are
- Abdominal surgery
- Cancer surgery
- Childhood injuries
- Foot / ankle surgery
- Hip replacement
- Knee surgery / arthroscopy
- Mastectomy / Lumpectomy
- Open heart surgery
- Surgery drain sites /
- Laparoscopy site
- Spinal surgery
*A handful of exceptions exist to this such Keloid scars and acne scars which are not suitable for ScarWork. If you are in doubt, ask your doctor or consultant if you can safely have massage on your scar.
