ScarWork

Scar healing, massage and management.

A life changing, gentle treatment that will help you regain confidence in your body.

What is ScarWork?

ScarWork is a gentle scar healing, massage and management treatment for new and old scars.  Facilitating optimal healing, improves functional movement of the surrounding soft tissue and overall wellbeing of the individual.  ScarWork can be a stand alone therapy or integrated into your soft tissue treatment for a holistic approach.

The method I use has been developed by the renowned American therapist, Sharon Wheeler, who has over 40 years experience.  I had the privilege of learning Sharon’s method from Emma Holly Restore Therapy to become a certified ScarWork therapist.

Who can benefit from ScarWork?

This therapy can be received after routine and emergency surgery or trauma.​  Reasons for seeking a ScarWork treatment may include:

  • Amputation

  • Caesarean section

  • Burns and skin grafts

  • Keyhole surgery

  • Internal scar tissue

  • Joint replacements

  • Routine surgery

  • Emergency surgery

  • Accident resulting in scarring

Initial treatment can usually commence at 6-12 weeks after event once the wound has healed.  The treatment is also successful on older scars too.
The ScarWork methods are gentle and rarely painful so is also suitable for the elderly and children.

After your initial treatment, I will recommend how many treatments would be most effective bringing incremental improvements with each treatment.

If you would like to learn more about how a ScarWork treatment might help you please do book a chat with me.

The healing that occurs after surgery or trauma is more than just the scar that is visible on the skin’s surface.  

After a c-section, for example, healing occurs in all the tissue that was moved, torn and incised: the subcutaneous tissue, the abdominal fascia (2 layers), the rectus muscles, parietal peritoneum, potentially the vesicouterine peritoneum, and the 3 layers of the uterus (the serosal outer layer, the muscle layer, and the inside mucosal layer).
