Surgery or traumatic scarring can cause symptoms such as pain or numbness in the scar area; referred pain or lack of sensitivity; and movement restrictions. Scar Release work can affect nerve tissue to normalise sensations, increase blood flow to the area, and increase lymphatic drainage. It can also work on an energetic level to promote emotional healing and wellbeing.
Often a scar will only need work on it once or twice; the results are lasting and there is invariably no rebound. Lymphatic drainage at the site of the scar is increased which enables any debris and toxins held within the scar to be released and dealt with by the lymphatic system. Once the scar tissue starts to smooth out and become more like the surrounding tissues again, mobility and elasticity starts to improve.
