‘Healing scars the natural way’
Charlotte Cunliffe is currently one of less than 100 therapists* in the UK offering this new scar therapy.
ScarWork is a therapy to treat all kinds of scars from surgery or accidents, including caesarian sections, hysterectomies, breast surgery, burns, hip and replacements and cosmetic surgery, making them more comfortable, less tight, rigid and stuck. Without oils or cream this scar massage is pain free.
Developed by Sharon Wheeler in America, ScarWork helps release stuck layers of body tissue as it recovers and repairs following an operation or accident. The light massage helps to improve how the scar visually appears but more importantly, changing the underlying tissues to allow better function and movement. As the dense scar tissue reduces and the tissue health recovers, nerve impairment such as numbness, pain or extreme sensitivity often improves.
