Many people acquire scars as they go through life. These could be as a result of planned or emergency surgery, or they could occur due to accidents. Scars carry with them the potential for physical and psychological impacts.

Physically they may lead to impaired movement and sensation, pain and discomfort, unpleasant sensations such as tearing or burning, tingling and itching and many more physical symptoms. Some symptoms may be experienced in the body at some distance from the scar, and the person may not make the connection between their scar and and their pain or dysfunction.

Emotionally scars may bring about feelings of embarrassment, self-consciousness, sadness, self-loathing, fear, anger, resentment and many more feelings.

Generally, we tend to ignore our scars, or at least try to ignore them, and try to persuade ourselves we have to learn to live with them - and our feelings around them. Some feelings we have buried.

Physiologically scars may cause long term effects on range of movement, transmission of nerve impulses, the flow of blood and lymph within the body and the flow of energy. Even keyhole surgeries can have similar effects, so should not be dismissed as of no consequence. Every scar represents some kind of injury and trauma to the body, however large or small.

Scar work has been described as "The most neglected of all bodywork skills."

Scar Tissue Release work is provided by a variety of Therapists who have trained in different disciplines, for example: Physical Therapists, Bowen Therapists, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Massage Therapists, Pilates Instructors, Rehabilitation Therapists and others who are interested in achieving the best outcomes for their patients. It is not usually a stand-alone therapy.

TREATMENT

Scar tissue work is very gentle and results can occur quickly. It is always applied within the comfort level of the client, and even very gentle work can have profound results. Consequently the practitioner will always be checking in with you about your level of comfort and experience throughout the session, and will constantly be guided by you and your reactions. The number of treatments required will vary from person to person and scar to scar. It could be as few as one or two, or it could be more, depending on various factors, such as the type of scar, the size of scar and so on.

Typically a session could last 45 minutes to an hour, although the actual time spent working on the scar will be much less. The extra time is spent on waiting for responses, checking in with your reactions and feelings, and reviewing changes. A hurried session is detrimental to the wellbeing of the client, and time is taken to proceed slowly.

The age of the scar makes no difference to effective treatments. 50 year old scars, and older have been seen and felt to make dramatic improvements. Your practitioner will advise on recent scars, as treatments usually do not commence before 8 weeks of healing has elapsed.
