The focus of this 4 day Scar Tissue Release course is to teach you subtle, powerful fascial release techniques, to free up pelvic and abdominal adhesions
Internal adhesions may cause pain and discomfort, impacting on patients internal organs; bladder, uterus, digestive system as well as fertility. The techniques taught are applied skin on skin (there are no internal techniques). These in-depth fascial release techniques will enable you to treat the collagenous component of adhesions and scar tissue however old. The techniques are light and gentle with the aim of reducing pain, improving function, and facilitating integration of scar tissue itself.
The fascial techniques are effective for adhesions and scar tissue caused by inflammatory conditions including Endometriosis, Crones disease, colitis, IBS, as well as for scar tissue from radiation therapy and surgical scars.
“Surgery in the lower abdomen and pelvis, including bowel and gynaecological operations, carries an even greater chance of abdominal adhesions. Abdominal adhesions can become larger and tighter as time passes, sometimes causing problems years after surgery.”
As a result of this training you will be able to palpate and treat both deep and superficial scar tissue to:
This course will include components of home care techniques. Teach your patients how to do some gentle self-care at home, to reduce adhesions. This will also lead to a great sense of empowerment for your patients.
The focus of this course is on women’s health and to empower our female clients.
It is never too late to start healing a scar and re-integrating the scar into the fascial web.
As a result of this course, you will leave with the skills and the confidence to treat your patients scar tissue. Most importantly you will gain better results with existing patients. You will also be able to increase your client base because of your increased skill set.
After two C-sections, one emergency and one scheduled I was left with numbness and disassociation in the whole of my abdominal region, as well as the sensation that my pelvic organs were about to prolapse (this was above and beyond what could be done with pelvic floor exercises), I also experienced pain during sexual intercourse. The treatment, has made a huge difference, I no longer have the sensation of prolapse, sex is now painless, I now feel more upright and more confident. I am beginning to feel my abdomen as an integrated part of me.

After two Scar tissue treatments for my Total Knee Replacement (TKR):
Both my legs have benefited from the treatment on the 2 different scars, or treatment of the surrounding tissues.
R. Leg, 6 months post total knee replacement plus DVT 1 week post op.
For the first time since surgery/DVT, I achieved a 90 degree bend, which has been maintained. In addition the stubborn inflammation and swelling has reduced. This was visible next day, since there was less tension, the stitch line puckered again, which also aided flexibility. Also next day, I went swimming and for the first time post op could manage partial breaststroke, instead of a feeble crawl and had better balance in the water. Interestingly my toes became less cramped! My mobility and comfort were increased and I slept better.
Yesterday, I had to be re-measured for compression socks and stockings, because those previously ordered were the wrong size. This time both legs fitted the guideline measurements for the same size, which is a size smaller than I measured previously – so all good!
L. Leg, venous ulcer scar 18 months old. Following the treatment this feels and looks better. It is less tender and a better colour. The skin around is less dry, circulation has been improved.
In December 2011 I had surgery to remove a cancer in my colon. I was told it would probably be a keyhole operation, but in the event the cancer was too large. The scar I have is about 21 cm long, from my navel over to the area above where my appendix would have been. The cancer, plus a metre of colon was removed along with my appendix and eighteen lymph nodes. I had no post-operative problems and the scar on the surface became virtually invisible.
A year later I found I had breast cancer, a lumpectomy and then a mastectomy followed – but again no chemo or radiotherapy.
Five years after my colon operation I began to have internal twinges in my stomach around the area where my appendix would have been and where the cancer had been. Over the next few weeks the twinges became more frequent and intense. My GP was in the process of taking blood samples and I was heading for a referral to the hospital. I thought the cancer had returned and it seemed the GP feared it might have done too. However Fascial Release came to the rescue – over the next few weeks Emma worked on my internal scar tissue. The twinges gradually diminished until they disappeared and now a couple of years later I have virtually forgotten about it.
