Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork Therapy – is a gentle light therapy that uses many techniques to encourage tissue health and treat discomfort or physical restrictions resulting from post-operative scars. Over 30 techniques have been developed by American therapist Sharon Wheeler that complements each other for maximum effect on different scar tissues.
ScarWork is used to improve feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues. It can stimulate the circulation, lymph flow and nervous system in the scar area to encourage renewed healing and promote tissue health, even decades after the scar was formed.
Visually there may also be cosmetic changes, scars can often appear smaller, flatter, lighter or less prominent, but the emphasis of treatment is to improve the underlying tissue.
