Every scar has a story to tell.
I work gently and mindfully with your scar to help release tension, adhesions, tissue congestion, and increase range of motion and quality of life with your scar.
Results may include a reduction in scar height or thickness, increased pliability, and improvement to the surface area texture, pigmentation or vascularity. In addition, massage can be helpful for reducing the ‘itching’ or ‘lack of feeling’ that can often happen at the site of a scar.
I use specific massage creams and oils traditionally known to support scar softening. I can teach you simple scar care to do at home to continue progress between our sessions.
Which scars can be helped?
Any scar can be worked with as long as it is mature, or fully closed, and having completed all it’s healing stages. This is typically 8 weeks after the cut.
