Scar-Tissue Massage

Research supports the use of scar-tissue massage in resolving impaired range of motion, circulation problems, nerve impediment and the pain associated with scar-tissue formation. A qualified therapist can explain the process of scar-tissue formation, the composition of scar tissue, when to begin applying massage for best results, and techniques on how to loosen and reduce scar tissue. Scar tissue can bind up many layers of muscle and connective tissue, causing varying degrees of limited movement and pain. It is important for a qualified therapist to have "sensitivity for the feel of the scar tissue and its age," and the necessity to adjust "to the client's comfort level," respecting the pain response of the client.
