Scar tissue adhesions, especially from surgical scars, can create tremendous tension in the fascial system, binding down on it, causing it to become tighter and more dysfunctional over time. You can do excellent rehabilitation work with your patients by releasing tension and bringing the body back to balance.
However, if scar adhesions are not released, tension may return. Within several months to a year your patient may experience a return of their similar symptoms. Adhesions can also be areas that hold emotional memory that may be keys to their recovery.
In this workshop you will learn the different types of scar tissue that can occur in the body and how to work with each using fascial techniques as well as the Chinese medicine tool - Gua Sha.
We ask that you bring in someone who has scar tissue adhesions that you can work on, be they a patient, friend, or family member. On your registration form we will ask for information regarding their scar/scars. If you are unable to find someone who has adhesions to work on, please let us know and we will try to provide someone.
*Please note that we will be giving preference to those therapists who already have someone to work on, as space is limited.
Treatment notes and Gua Sha tools will be provided for use in the course. Therapists may be required to supply their own tables, linens, and pillows (depending on the location of the course). Gua Sha tools may be purchased upon request. Space will be limited 12 therapists plus their patients.
