Integrated Scar Work Therapy
Scars can cause restricted movement, pain and discomfort.
Are you struggling with a C-section scar or hysterectomy scar that is causing you problems? Or perhaps you are concerned about abdominal adhesions caused by endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease?
Massage can help to break down scar tissue and adhesions - releasing stuck tissue and freeing up movement.
Most problematic scars have similar characteristics - the skin is tight, hard with bands of fibres below the surface. They are often non pliable and if they cross a joint may cause a limited range of motion in the joint.
Other negative impacts are:
Poor postural alignment
Limited range of motion & an increased risk of injury
It doesn't matter if you have had your scar for some years - most scars have a level of stuck-ness which can be helped by massage.
It is also important to do pelvic floor exercises.
I work with an integrated approach to working with your scar - I use massage techniques that have been shown to help reduce tightness and bring more blood to the area - softening and releasing your scar.
This specialised massage uses soft tissue release, Instrument assisted massage, superficial and deep abdominal massage, Stretches, castor oil packs and Kinesio-taping for post operative oedema.
