ScarWork is for any kind of scar old or new, caused by injury or surgery. It can help improve the appearance and the feel of scars as well as helping to reduce restrictions and discomfort
Pat Miller, massage therapist and reflexologist at the Centre, has spent the past year studying for a diploma in Body Realignment. As part of the diploma, Pat has trained in Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork, firstly with Sharon in 2014 and more recently with Jan Trewartha, Principal at Body in Harmony Training. ScarWork can be given as a stand-alone treatment or integrated with other modalities.
ScarWork is a very specialised, light touch therapy similar to massage but without using oils or creams, which helps to improve the quality and function of the tissues beneath the scar as well as the feel and appearance of the scar itself.
The emphasis of ScarWork is on changing the underlying tissues. Treatment starts with the surface layers and moves more deeply into the connective tissue (fascia) under the scar. Scar tissue is very dense fascia with unique properties. ScarWork seems to have the effect of changing the quality of this tissue, smoothing out lumps, ridges, gaps, knots and strings. Each scar is unique and the changes brought about vary from one scar to another and from one person to another.

For October our blog focuses on massage and reflexology at the Centre, which are provided by Pat Miller, Donna Walker and Victoria Lily.
In this article Victoria gives us a brief introduction into both of these complementary therapies.
The term massage covers many different types of treatment, all of which involve the rubbing and kneading of soft tissues and muscles in the body. This helps to promote healing and enhance the health and wellbeing of each person.
The therapists at WCHC practice various different types of massage treatment including sports massage, aromatherapy, deep tissue and ayurvedic treatments. When you come for your initial consultation the therapist will have a chat with you to determine how they can benefit you and which massage techniques will be best. Massage can be deeply relaxing and rejuvenating for both the body and mind.
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy based on the theory that there are many points on the feet, lower legs, hands, face and ears that relate to different areas of the body. It is thought that by applying pressure to these points, the relating point on the body can be re-balanced and made well.
Reflexology is usually practiced on the feet. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients to treat many different issues. Reflexology can be deeply relaxing and re-balancing for the body, creating a space for the body to be able to heal itself naturally.
