Scar Therapy

What is Scar Therapy


Scar Tissue is formed as a result of any injury to the body's tissues, through trauma, surgery and illness. It can be found both externally, on the skin, or internally, within or around organs, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. The body repairs wounds as quickly, and as best it can, but this occurs in a very different way to how normal tissue is produced. This can result in a scar which causes further problems once the initial injury or wound has healed.


Scarring can result in symptoms such as numbness, itching, pain and movement restrictions.  ​


Scar Therapy utilises a combination of techniques which can include:


  • Scar Massage
  • Specific Scar Tissue Release techniques
  • Lymphatic drainage work
  • Education regarding scar healing and scar care
  • Advice on home products and treatment regime
  • Advice on exercises/movements to help with scar mobility
