Working with Scars engages unique techniques that were developed by Rolfer Sharon Wheeler, based on similar principles to those Dr. Ida Rolf used in developing Rolfing® Structural Integration.
ScarWork is a non-invasive approach that facilitates better tissue quality over bodily landscapes that were injured
Landmarks on the body surfaces such as bumps, gaps, knots, holes, and ridges then become smoother. It can reduce pain and numbness, promotes healing of scar, adhesions in the underlying tissue, and can usually resolve lingering chronic nerve dysfunction, also in old scars with nerve function that have stayed impaired for many years.
ScarWork is done with a light touch progressing from the surface toward the inside, designed to liberate valuable held material and free the three-dimensional fascial net.
By reducing density, promoting consistency, and normal tissue layers, both the structure and the functionality of the tissue can be improved.
The work often results in whole-body integration.
