ScarWork (Scar Therapy)

ScarWork is a form of scar therapy which uses gentle massage techniques, without oils or creams, to help post operative or burn scars.

ScarWork is used to improve feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues, leading to increased movement between the layers of the skin, fascia (connective tissue) and muscle.

Even very old scars can benefit from ScarWork treatment, and the technique is suitable for many different types of scars, including those after an accident, operation, burn or cosmetic surgery. Read More
