WHAT IS A ScarWork MASSAGE?
Sharon Wheeler ScarWork treatment is used to improve the health and feel of scars from surgery or accidents.
ScarWork is primarily done to improve the feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues, creating better movement between the layers of the skin, fascia and muscles.
Treatment stimulates the circulation, lymphatic and nervous system to encourage renewed healing and promote healthy tissue.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT
The therapist will begin by taking a full medical history. They will then physically assess the problem area.
Unlike traditional scar massage, ScarWork is rarely painful, even for new scars.
Work is done on and around the scar and works predominantly on the superficial layers. Treatments are provided using light touch techniques.
We will need consent from your medical care team to treat the scar if you are still under their care.
The scar must be dried out fully therefore depending on the operation, it’s generally 6-12 weeks post surgery that we would see someone for ScarWork.
Your emotions can play a part in how effective this treatment can be, we therefore suggest trying to be in a calm relaxing place when having treatment.
