ScarWork uses gentle techniques to integrate all kind of different scars back into the
fascial web and enables scars to heal better even after a long time.
ScarWork is done primarily to improve feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues and to
create better movement between the layers of the skin, fascia (connective tissue) and muscles. Treatments
stimulate the circulation, lymphatic and nervous system to encourage renewed healing and promote tissue
Visually, cosmetic changes can occur: scars often appear smaller, lighter and less prominent but the
emphasis is on the underlying tissue changes. The work starts with the surface layers and moves deeper
into the far reaches of the scar. ScarWork can help improve nerve impairment or symptoms such as
numbness, pain or sensitivity.
Changes that occur to the scar and nerve function should be permanent. Tightness in surrounding tissues
is reduced and muscle function in the area can be improved. Knots, bumps and tight stringy scars are softened
and loosened. Lumps, gaps, ridges and holes can be minimised and smoothed out into the three dimensional
fascial web. Multiple treatments may be needed to gain the most benefit and response to treatment will vary
for each individual.
