A one day introductory workshop (£145) for qualified therapists to discover a new approach for treating scars, fibrosis and adhesions. Learn some simple new techniques to help encourage further healing in this one day highly practical course.

Releasing or improving the tension in scar, or improving the fibrosis and connective tissue health may be the key to your clients recovery…so it’s an ideal course for qualified therapists such as physiotherapists, MLD practitioners, massage therapists, osteopaths and chiropractors or similar to add some new techniques.

Attendees will finish the day having discovered 6 simple ScarWork techniques and have an understanding of their application for a variety of scars surgery. ScarWork is gentle, so minimal strain is put on the therapist and the client should also find treatment pain-free.

Course Covers:

  • – 6 Simple ScarWork techniques, designed to promote healthy scar tissue and help reduce adhesions and fibrosis

This practical workshop is designed to deliver simple, easy to apply techniques for patients after surgery. Theory sessions will introduce the concepts of scars, connective tissue, adhesions and fibrosis.

We discuss client mobility/longer term impacts and the benefit of promoting improvement in and around the scar and connective tissue. Much of the day is focused on developing the attendees skills in the correct pressure and delivery of the ScarWork techniques and application for scars after a variety or surgery types.

Pre-course reading is issued before attendance. The day starts with a pop quiz on the pre-course reading followed by basic theory including contraindications and treatment principles. This is followed by a demonstration and paired practice to complete the morning session. In the afternoon, the skills are then transferred to a clinical session with external ‘volunteer models’ for consolidation of the techniques, on clients with a variety of scars from surgery.

For those new to scars and scar tissue techniques, further training is recommended.  At the end of the course attendees may choose to attend the full ScarWork certification course and become a ScarWork therapist.

Please note: Attendees are only permitted to use the ScarWork logo and promote themselves as a ScarWork therapist when the ScarWork Therapist 24 Hour Training course training has been attended.

All attendees must be qualified and insured professional therapists with at least one years experience in their field.
