Scar Tissue Massage
Do you have surgical scars or burns? Your scar tissue could be causing you pain even if it is a very old injury. While scarring is a natural part of the healing process, sometimes we are left with too much fibrous tissue that restricts our natural movement, leading to compensation, pain and dysfunction. Massage therapy can effectively make your scars more mobile and pliable, and diminish uneven texture. The effect of warming the tissue, stretching it, and releasing adhesions is greater range of motion, less pain, and a more attractive appearance. Whether your scar is a result of breast reconstruction, heart surgery, hysterectomy, burns, or any other type of trauma, let your massage therapist know and see what a difference it can make.
