I have learned some wonderfully gentle techniques which work on every level of scar tissue.
There are many reasons why we end up with scars on our bodies. Many come from surgery and injury, some from the wonder of giving birth through C section, and sadly, some from a very traumatic experience. However, all scars react in the same way and are not just the superficial mark we see on our skin. They are complex and run deep, tethering internal organs and structures in ways which impact on our range of movement and often causing pain.
I have had the honour of attending courses run by the internationally renowned Sharon Wheeler, founder of ScarWork, and I have learned some wonderfully gentle techniques which work on every level of scar tissue. It doesn’t matter if your scar is 2 months old or 20 years old, the techniques may still effect change both physically and psychologically.
Breast cancer surgey and scarwork
In 2012, as part of my BTEC level 6, I chose to do my dissertation on Fibrosis in Breast Cancer patients who had received radiotherapy as part of their treatment. The results of my case studies concurred with previous international research that myofascial release techniques can reduce fibrosis, increase range of motion, reduce tightness and restrictions, improve the physical quality of life and have a positive impact on mental health.
I have had the privilege of treating many people since then, following lumpectomies, mastectomies, and pre and post reconstruction surgery, including gender reassignment surgery. The techniques used are gentle, slow and deeply relaxing with no return of scar tissue and restrictions reported by clients, even several years after treatment. Please do get in touch for a confidential and informal chat.
I DO NOT CLAIM TO TREAT OR CURE CANCER AND THIS IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR CANCER TREATMENT. I AIM TO TREAT THE SYMPTOMS OF FIBROSIS AND RESTRICTED SCAR TISSUE ONLY AND CLIENTS SHOULD SEEK THE PERMISSION OF THEIR CONSULTANT OR GP BEFORE ATTENDING.
