Scar Treatment Therapy
What is Scar Treatment Therapy?
ScarWork helps integrate scar tissue into the underlying fascial web to improve the condition of the scar and surrounding tissue.
ScarWork is done primarily to improve the feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues, creating better movement between the layers of the skin, fascia (connective tissue) and muscle. Treatments stimulate the circulation, lymphatic and nervous system to encourage renewed healing and promote tissue health.
Visually, cosmetic changes can occur: scars often appear smaller, lighter and less prominent but the emphasis is on the underlying tissue changes. ScarWork can help resolve layers and nerve impairments or symptoms such as numbness, pain or sensitivity.
Changes that occur to the scar and nerve function should be permanent. Tightness in surrounding tissue is reduced and muscle function in the area can be improved. Knots and tight ropey scars are often softened and loosened, ridges and holes can be minimized. Multiple treatments may be needed to gain the most benefit and response to treatment will vary for each individual.
ScarWork is not like traditional scar massage. It is rarely painful, even for new scars. Using a variety of specially developed movements, qualified practitioners will work on and around the scar. Although seemingly effortless, treatments can instigate whole body shifts where patterns of dysfunction caused by old or new injuries are released.
