Scar Tissue Massage
The body forms scar tissue as a natural response to trauma when the skin is lacerated or punctured either by accident or purposefully ie. surgery. Collagen being laid down during the repair process results in a thickened, fibrous mass which can impede proper circulation of blood, congests lymph flow, and can even impact on Range of Motion.
Scar Tissue Release is a highly specialised treatment that can enhance the look and function of a surgical scar and burn scars. Scar adhesions can often be a source of unexplained pain and restrict movement.
Old Scars can be treated and improve even many years after the operation.
Types of scars we can work on:
- Abdominal scars – C-section, Hysterectomy, Appendectomy
- Surgical scars
- Cosmetic Procedures
- Mastectomy & Thyroid removal scars
Post Cosmetic Surgery Care
Cosmetic Surgery (liposuction, BBL, Breast reduction or implants etc.) is a procedure that involves cutting into the body to alter the body shape and contour.
Generally after surgery, swelling, excess fluid and scar tissue will develop where the surgical incision was made in the skin. The body natural response is to heal, where there is trauma to the body ie cut from surgery, the body lays down collagen at the injured sight and overtime thickness in the area can occur forming the scar tissue.
Swelling and excess fluid is generally the result of the residual anaesthetic used during the procedure that remains under the skin. Lymphatic Drainage is a great treatment technique to assist with the drainage of excess fluid.
Scar tissue at the site of incision is not a permanent fixture and can be treated with Scar tissue treatment. If left untreated, lesion (adhesions) can develops at the site which causes pain, discomfort and movement restriction even years after surgery. A treatment method for post op surgery care we use is a technique called MSTR (Mcloughlin Scar Tissue Release ) . MSTR® is an innovative and successful method of scar tissue treatment. Long lasting results are obtained in many, many cases of post-surgical and trauma wound scars
Post cosmetic surgery treatment of Lymphatic drainage/ scar tissue release can be performed as early as 2 days after surgery. Twice a week for 6 sessions will give you the best recovery. However, everyone healing time differs. You may require more scar tissue treatments post-op.
