Scar tissue is fascia
This means that all of the principles of Structural Integration apply when working with it. And if you embark on any series of treatments with me and you have a scar, we will work on your scar tissue. It’s part of your body and your story. But you can also book a standalone treatment, or treatments, to focus on your scar tissue.
Scars that can be treated include:
- spinal surgery
- mastectomy and breast reconstruction
- open heart surgery
- joint replacement
- keyhole surgery
What to Expect from Scar Tissue Therapy
First off—working with scar tissue is rarely painful. Each session will usually bring an incremental improvement to the scar and surrounding area, creating more softness and reducing the restrictions caused by the thickening of the underlying tissues and any stickiness between the layers of muscle, skin and fat tissue.
It can lead to dramatic and quick improvements such as:
- Cosmetic changes: lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots and strings in the tissue smooth out
- Resolution of nerve-impaired numbness
- Softer and more mobile scars
- Reduction or cessation of pain
Natural and surgical scars of any age often respond quickly to the work.
Although results may be seen after one session, a series is often more effective (there is a pattern here!). Many clients find that between 4-8 treatments provide them with the improvements they seek.
