Our bodies undertake a complex repair process following trauma or surgery, to swiftly repair breakages in the skin's surface and the underlying tissues. Scar tissue is composed of dense mainly collagen fibres and so many factors can have an impact on wound healing; your current health, ongoing medical treatment or infections, and different parts of the body heal differently.
Occasionally, scars may cause some problems. Thickened scar tissue may develop, there may be swelling, feelings of restriction or changes in sensation such as numbness, itching and pain. The complexity of our structure means that scars may even lead to discomfort elsewhere in the body. Alison is trained in ScarWork™ and this gentle, hands-on process not only improves the physical aspects but also works on the often-deep emotional healing associated with the scar.
You can have ScarWork once the post-operative check-up has been carried out, approximately 10 weeks post-surgery, and it is never too late to start work on a scar.
After having Scar Therapy, most will notice how their scars feel softer, flatter and less restrictive. Whilst not everyone will have a visual change to their scar, often scars appear lighter and more integrated into their surroundings.
An initial telephone consultation will be undertaken to discuss your individual needs.
First appointment and full consultation allow up to 90-minutes - £50

Please note that hands-on treatment time will always depend on the response of the area being worked.
