Scar Therapy is a series of gentle, prescribed, massage based techniques to help with the function and feel of your scar. The treatments are non abrasive and are not painful. I use the most current technology and evidence based practice, to achieve the best results.

Massage techniques are used to help improve movement and function of the incision or areas following surgery and help reduce scar pain and ‘dragging’ feelings caused by ‘stuck’ scar tissue. This massages addresses not only the scar but surrounding tissues that maybe impacting the movements and sensations in and around the scar tissues.

Scar therapy can help with pain, itching, numbness, redness, overhang, pinning down, hyper sensitivity or raised scarring.

The types of scarring that I am able to treat include:



Breast cancer scarring

Bowel Surgery


Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)

Breast augmentation

Keyhole surgery on the abdomen

Thyroid surgery

Mole removal

Damaged veins post cancer treatment

Because scars can look nice and neat on the surface, we don’t consider the irregularly patched layers underneath that form scar tissue, strengthening the vulnerable area, but also exerting a three-dimensional pull inside your body.

This scar tissue becomes an internal adhesion that can bind together formerly separate structures in your body and can reach far away from the site of the scar.

After surgery, scar releases through massage and mobilisation techniques can continue to restore the incision area and the layers beneath for optimum recovery and function.

All scars benefit from treatment to reduce the risk of adhesions building up and causing long term concerns. This treatment is recommended from as early as 6 weeks post operation, as long as the area is healed and there are no scabs, open areas, or signs of infection.

I work holistically, so will take a full history of your scar and you will be prescribed home care guidance that will help you to continually improve your scar between sessions.

Suggested treatments:

If you have a new scar (less than 6 months old – you can come as early as 6 weeks post op with scar that has healed externally), then it is recommended to come fortnightly for 4 sessions (90 minute session followed by 3x 60 minutes) and then monthly for 2 sessions and then be reviewed at 12,18 and 24 months. If you are happy with your scar at any time you can choose when the therapy finishes. This is of course an optimal course of treatments, please do not feel you have to be this prescriptive.

If your scar is mature (over 2 years old) you would benefit from coming monthly for 4 sessions (90 minute session followed by 3x 60 minutes, then every two months for two sessions and then we can decide if  further sessions are recommended after that. Again, you can decide how you feel during the sessions, and if you are making good progress, then you may not need as many sessions.
