Do You Love or Hate your Scars

Hello. Thank you for taking time and reading my blog about Scars. I hope you will find it interesting.

Scars- most of us have one hiding away somewhere. From scars caused by falling off that bike all those years ago while chasing our friends, to scars from going little bit crazy with that saw during the Bank Holiday home improvements. Scars from knee replacements, hip replacements, C-section scars, burns, car accidents and the list goes on….

In fact I have a nice collection of scars myself.  Once, when I was about 2 years old, I could not wait for my mum to pass me that nice piece of cake that was sitting on the table next to a pot of freshly made (hot!) coffee. So, now I have a nice scar all over my right arm!  And there are plenty more in my collection! 

As probably most of us, I have learned to live with and accept my scars and they are just part of who I am. Sometimes I forget they are even there to be honest.

However last year, while looking for another interesting workshop to use in my practice, I came across McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release course (MSTR), which incidentally my friend was teaching.

I decided to enrol, and am so happy I did. It is a wonderful skill to have in my toolbox.

I learned, that even if we do forget about our scars, they can have a lasting effect on our physical and mental health and wellbeing (sometimes without being aware of it).

Of course, not all scars cause us problems. And of course, not everyone is able to forget about their presence, perhaps because they were caused by traumatic events or they stare us in the face every time we look in the mirror.

There is a tremendous amount of research being carried out especially about scars and scar tissue from c-section surgery, which seems to be causing back pain, bladder and abdominal issues and other health complications.

If you have had a knee operation or replacement and feel that your range of motion is no longer what it used to be, then perhaps the scar tissue could be blamed for this.

The effects of post-surgical scars on the human body cannot and should not be underestimated.

Unfortunately, the effect of the scar tissue in the physical body is just the beginning. The emotional and psychological effects of the scar can also be very damaging. Sometimes just accepting the presence of the scar can be very difficult.

Luckily there are various therapies available to treat the scars and reduce their negative effects, improving health and mobility, and helping us feel better in our skin.

I love using this method in my practice. It is gentle yet very effective, it helps to improve the appearance of the scar, increases blood flow to the area and speed up healing. It helps to improve mobility and also helps us to reconnect with that part of the body and accept it for what it is now.

It brings me a great joy to treat my clients using this technique and I love seeing the results.
