Scar Massage 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 may still benefit from manual therapy as part of rehabilitation, structural or soft tissue treatment.
Scar therapy can help loosen and release tight scar tissue to reduce discomfort. Treatment can be beneficial on both new and old scar tissue.
By reducing tightness and encouraging mobility between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle, the client's range of movement can often improve.
Trapped nerves and irritated scar tissue can be a factor for prolonged discomfort. Therapeutic touch may reduce pain and help normalise sensitivity.
Gentle therapeutic touch can be powerful way to aid emotional recovery and help accept changes after surgery or an accident.
Scar massage is often recommended by surgeons to promote optimum scar healing after surgery & may minimise long term complications.
