ScarWork is not a new technique. It has been around since 1973 when Sharon Wheeler developed the technique. What is new and interesting more practitioners are now asking people about their scars during initial consultation. Scarring is an essential part of the healing process after surgery, accidents or trauma. Superficial healing is quick and we often forget that the underlying tissue is still healing and this will continue for 3-6 months.
ScarWork can loosen and release tight scar tissue to reduce discomfort. This is beneficial for both old new scars. Not only does it make scars look better they feel better. Helps restore mobility. Improving clients range of movement and reduce adhesions. Reduce sensitivity and pain. Support emotional well being and promote healing.
