ScarWork™ Therapy

ScarWork™ is a set of manual techniques developed to improve the health and function of scars by Sharon Wheeler in the US.  The techniques are very light and gentle and performed with dry hands. They work by stimulating the underlying tissues to reduce adhesions and dense tissue and to reduce symptoms from nerve damage, such as numbness or sensitivity.  Scars often improve in appearance, becoming lighter, softer and blending better with the surrounding area, but the emphasis is on improving function.  The results can vary between individuals but changes are usually permanent.  ScarWork™ is effective on old as well as recent scars.

I can help you if
  • your scar is painful or numb
  • your scar is tight or restrictive
  • your scar is sunken, raised or puckered
  • the tissue is thicker on one side of your scar
  • the tissue around your scar is dense or hard
