Integrating Scar Tissue is Sharon Wheeler’s original discovery and one that she is continually developing and expanding on. There are numerous separate techniques used to integrate different qualities of scar tissue into the fascial web.
Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of connective tissue. Scar tissue is a very dense tissue with unique properties. ScarWork uses a casual, light touch.
The work is rarely painful. The functional changes can be profound and the cosmetic effect is delightful. Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately, followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement. The improvements are permanent.
Scar tissue quality changes quickly and easily. Lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots, and strings in the tissue rapidly smooth out into a three dimensional fascial web. The work starts with the surface layers and goes into the far reaches of the scar including work with any involved viscera.
Practitioners will learn these techniques well enough to take them home and use them the next day in their private practices. ScarWork can fit seamlessly into an SI series or be used as a stand-alone intervention session.
