ScarWork Fascial Improvement
ScarWork is a new massage technique recently introduced by Adelia at Amber Health, Beauty and Sports Injury Clinic. It adds to, and compliments, our current range of Sports Injury Clinic treatments.
Scars and adhesions from operations or accidents can lead to a chronic pattern of damage throughout the body, resulting in misalignment, pain and reduced function of the main organs. This is light, painless work, developed by Sharon Wheeler. See links (http://www.wheelerfascialwork.com/) and (http://www.bodyinharmony.org.uk/scarwork-uk/) for some “before and after” photos of scars and scar improvements.
Each ScarWork Session is usually about 1 hour or 1.5 hours. More than one treatment session may be required.
ScarWork Introduction – the Sharon Wheeler Technique
Integrating Scar Tissue is Sharon Wheeler’s original discovery, and one that she is continually developing and expanding on. There are 19 separate techniques used to integrate different qualities of scar tissue into the fascial web.
Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of connective tissue. Scar tissue is very dense fascia with unique properties. Scar tissue work uses a casual, light touch – a little reminiscent of working with bread dough.
The work is rarely painful – even for very new scars, and the amount of change in one intervention is extensive. The cosmetic effect is delightful and the functional changes can be profound. Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement. The improvements are permanent.
Scar tissue quality changes quickly and easily. Lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots, and strings in the tissue rapidly smooth out into a three dimensional fascial web. The work starts with the surface layers and goes into the far reaches of the scar including work with any involved viscera. Scar work often results in large whole body integration shifts along with trauma resolution, and nerve-impaired numbness usually resolves within a session.
Review of the “Body in Harmony” Website – (http://www.bodyinharmony.org.uk/scarwork-uk/) identifies a number of case histories where Scar Tissue Improvement has been demonstrated. There are some interesting examples where War Zone injuries have shown great improvement.
Before any Treatment can take place, a ScarWork Case History Questionnaire must be completed. In some cases a Client Consent Form may be requested to be completed.
