A scar is a mark left on the skin or on an internal organ by the healing of a wound, sore, surgery or injury because of replacement by connective tissue of the injured tissue. Scars may result from wounds that have healed, lesions of disease, accidents or surgical operations. Health professionals generally overlook scar tissue therapy because the extent of physiological effects scars can have on the body have never really been acknowledged.
Scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction including internally throughout the body. It can also restrict movement or function anywhere in the body from a joint to an organ. Fortunately, releasing scars yields powerful results that can prevent a lifetime of compensation, complications and pain
Long Term Effects of Scars
Itching Sleep Disturbance Anxiety Depression Nerve impingement Pain Numbness Limited range of motion and flexibility Postural misalignment Muscle atrophy Tissue Hypoxia An increase in potential for future injury
Benefits of Scar Tissue Release Therapy
Improves flexibility Helps to relieve stress on the body from fascial tension Reduces muscle spasms Helps to prevent adhesion formation from injury/surgery Promotes balance in the body Helps to increase athletic performance Helps to maintain good posture Reduces the risk of muscle strain and tearing Improves oxygen and nutrient delivery to cells Helps to regain and maintain the full range of motion of a joint Helps stimulate lymph circulation and elimination of cellular waste
Often a scar carries with it the memory of trauma, fear and pain. This memory can be of physical pain and/or the emotional fear or trauma. The cellular memory of the trauma can block the flow of healing energy within the body and mind. Discomfort and problems may result from the incomplete healing process.
