Helping you to move
ScarWork Therapy is a new form of therapy within the UK after first being devised by Sharon Wheeler in the USA some years ago.
Scarwork is a very gentle, relaxing treatment administered without oils or lotions directly to the scar. As scar tissue is dense and stronger than normal tissue it can often restrict movement and create discomfort through the tissue and surrounds areas.The adhesions that develop from scar tissue are both at skin level and deeper within the connective tissue. ScarWork Therapy aims to lessen the impact of the scar tissue; allowing areas that feel tight or 'stuck' to move more easily. Aishling performs ScarWork therapy on most of her surgical patients- from mastectomy to abdominal patients, great results have been seen in only a few sessions.
