Scar Tissue Repair

Every year thousands of people undergo surgery or have serious accidents leaving them with scar tissue. For some people, their scar may leave them feeling tight or uncomfortable. Others may not notice any physical discomfort but could still benefit from physical therapy as part of their rehabilitation, structural or soft tissue treatment.

Scar Therapy is a series of gentle, light, massage-based treatments to help with the function and feeling of your scar.

Scar Therapy can:

Release Tightness

Scar therapy can help loosen and release tight scar tissue to reduce discomfort. Treatment can be beneficial on both new and old scar tissue
.

Help Restricted Mobility

By reducing tightness and encouraging mobility between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle, the client’s range of movement can often improve.
 

Reduce Sensitivity and Pain

Trapped nerves and irritated scar tissue can be a factor for prolonged discomfort. Therapeutic touch may reduce pain and help to normalise sensitivity.
