ScarWork aids the healing and functionality of wound, post- operative or burn scars and the surrounding areas.
The result of scars after operations or accidents can be far-reaching, impacting the body in several ways, including reduced mobility, restricted movement, hyper-sensitivity and nerve impairment. The adhesions common to scarring often causes secondary problems.
The light-touch techniques work to soften and release adhesions and restrictions, resulting in improved mobility, functionality and appearance. Scars appear smoother, flatter and less prominent, often with profound functional changes.
Scars respond irrelevant of their age and the healing continues for a few weeks after a session. A feeling of overall integration of body and mind can result from ScarWork sessions.
ScarWork and Myofascial Bodywork can help with any post-op or injury scars including:
. joint replacement,
. open heart surgery
. C-Section and abdomincal scarring
. appendix and hysterectomy
. sports injuries,
. self-harm scarring,
. drain sites and
. skin grafts.
It has been particularly touching for me to see the healing that can happen for women who have gone through the trauma of mastectomy and see that Scarwork brings not only more freedom of movement but restores a sense of wholeness and well-being. Working with women who have had caesarians, they report improved visual effects along with a feeling of being reconnected from that cut in two feeling, with improved posture and well-being.
Often serious injury or invasive surgery can leave trauma in the body and psyche. Myofascial Bodywork addresses these consequences in a gentle and non-invasive way.
A light-touch therapy, myofascial unwinding and energy work aims to release restriction in the fascial web, caused by injury or emotional trauma, resulting in a healing release.
Fascia is a type of 3D connective tissue that covers and protects bones, muscles, nerves and organs of the body. After injury or surgery, massage or manipulation can be ineffective because the cause of the problem area lies in restriction of the fascial web.
The research into fascia in the last ten years has been extensive. The knowledge gained has made a huge impact on treatment of injury and imbalance, working on both physical and emotional release.
Myofascial Bodywork can help with whiplash, RSI and most forms of injury. Also a non-invasive therapy for working with physical restriction caused by emotional trauma. Myofascial unwinding is sometimes incorporated into ScarWork as it complements the effects.
