After surgery or a trauma that affects the skin, scar tissue usually forms in a thick and fibrotic manner. Though this produces a robust scar, it often contains adhesions which glue skin and the underlying layers of fascia together in an non-functional way. This reduces flexibility and may make the scar appear lumpy and raised and may feel uncomfortable.
ScarWork™ is a specialised form of fascial therapy (developed by Sharon Wheeler) incorporating a range of specific techniques to ease restrictions and soften scar tissue to increase hydration and restore elasticity. It uses light touch to stimulate circulation, lymph flow and activates the nervous system to promote further healing.
Pilates is a mat-based exercise method focused on developing core strength. The repertoire is taught in a systematic way to first build support and then to challenge strength and co-ordination. More
Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that focuses on manipulating the body’s fascial tissue. The aim is to improve movement ability and help the bodily structures to re-align to form better relationships to each other. More
