Scar massage is a gentle hands-on therapy to help your scar fade and help the underlying tissue return to its original shape.
Scar massage can improve the feeling and function of the scar and surrounding tissue meaning you will experience better movement between the layers of skin, connective tissue and muscle.
Your scar will appear smaller, flatter, lighter and less prominent and the feeling of tightness will reduce.
Healing takes place by stimulating the blood circulation, lymphatic system and nervous system. This promotes tissue health and improves the tissue quality, texture and appearance of the scar. It also reduces any pain you may be experiencing.
