Scar Work Massage Therapy

A Scar consists of fibrous tissue that is laid down in a mis matched fashion so it is not as structurally sound as uninjured tissue. Scar tissue is not as flexible and can disrupt smooth movement between the fascial layers, causing adhesions, sensitivity, pain and weakness. Scar Work therapy uses a variety of light techniques which are applied to the scar and surrounding tissues to create better movement between the layers of skin, fascia (connective tissue) and muscle. It stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous system. It helps integrate the scar into movement, reduce pain, tightness, sensitivity and numbness. Visually cosmetic changes can occur; the scar often appears smaller, lighter and less prominent. All kinds of scars can be worked on from very old to newly healed. The scar could be the result of an accident, operation or cosmetic surgery. Bev has extensive specific onchology scar work training with restore therapy and breast cancer-specific with both Sharon Wheeler's ScarWork and the late great Willie Fourie. Bev has also completed pelvic specialist training in post-abdominal surgery including c-sections and refresher courses with Sharon Wheeler herself.
