The presence of scar tissue in the body – however big or small the outward appearance of the scar can affect the layers of tissues under the skin, causing tension and discomfort not only in the area of the scar, but it can also influence the way the whole body functions.
Why have Scar Therapy?
Every year thousands of people undergo surgery or have serious accidents leaving them with scar tissue. For some people, their scar may leave them feeling tight or uncomfortable. Others may not notice any physical discomfort but could still benefit from physical therapy as part of their rehabilitation, structural or soft tissue treatment.
ScarWork treatment is used to improve the health and feel of scars from surgery or accidents.
* Release Tightness
Scar therapy can help loosen and release tight scar tissue to reduce discomfort. Treatment can be beneficial on both new and old scar tissue
* Help Restricted Mobility
By reducing tightness and encouraging mobility between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle, range of movement can often improve
* Reduce Sensitivity and Pain
Trapped nerve endings and irritated scar tissue can be a factor for prolonged discomfort. Therapeutic touch may reduce pain and help to normalise sensitivity
* Stimulate and Boost Healing
Scar massage is often recommended by surgeons as a way to promote optimum scar healing after surgery and may minimise longer term complications
*Support Emotional Wellbeing
Therapeutic touch can be powerful way to aid emotional recovery and help you accept changes in your body after a surgery or accident

Lots of You Tube clips are now available to describe this amazing web that wraps around the other tissues and organs in the body.
I have trained with Alistair McLoughlin in 2017, learning his simple effective technique. I will shortly be completing my case studies in order to become a fully approved practitioner.
I have also completed Sharon Wheeler’s Scarwork course in London, and repeated again in Aberavon. This method has a larger range of scar release techniques. I completed a specialist course in breast surgery scars in November 2018.
I see these technique as being fully complementary to my use of EMMETT Technique as they are gentle and light touch. I look forward to discussing the possibilities with existing and new clients.
