Scar Tissue Massage

Scar Tissue Massage can:

  • Reduce skin rippling and adhesions
  • Soften tissue
  • Relieve pain and pinching
  • Increase range of motion
  • Renew skin elasticity
  • Smooth out lumps and bumps

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 up to an hour 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.

About Scar Tissue

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:

  • Become hard, stiff and un-pliable which may cause pain
  • Fibrous with bands on a subcutaneous level or superficial on the skin
  • Pull and ripple skin
  • Shorten the skin and if over a joint area, may restrict range of motion
  • Bind and restrict internal organs if located within the abdominal region

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:

  • Nerve impingement
  •  Pain and numbness
  •  Restricted range of motion and flexibility
  •  Muscle atrophy

 Using massage to manipulate scar tissue in the developing stage will greatly minimize the risk of these problems.
