Scar tissue massage is an aggressive form of tissue manipulation designed to stretch and soften scar tissue. Initially, the sessions can be painful and you may experience soreness afterward. Deep tissue and myofacial release massage techniques are used to release the tissue.
Sessions are 30 minutes and may be longer depending on the area to be covered. Session length will be determined at the free consultation.
Each scar tissue case is unique and a free consultation is needed to estimate the number of sessions for optimal results.

IMPORTANT: 24 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give us 24 hours advance notice or you are a "no-show", you are responsible for the cost of your appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment. In the event that you have purchased a series, one appointment will be deducted from your remaining appointments to cover the missed one.

The formation of scar tissue (also known as adhesions when formed internally,) is the body's natural response to injuries, burns, surgical incision sites, liposuction, plastic surgery and the like. Depending on the person and the extent of the injury, internal and external scar tissue may:
The long-term effects of scar tissue or adhesions will vary according to severity, location and the individual. However, scar tissue is primarily collagen and the dense fibers of its composition can restrict proper blood and lymph circulation which can lead to dysfunction. The surrounding tissue and structures are put under undue stress which can lead to:
Using massage to manipulate scar tissue in the developing stage will greatly minimize the risk of these problems.
