Many women experience discomfort and restricted movement after treatment for Cancer
Book an appointment for Scar Care:
- Once your scar is intact
- If you experience reduced shoulder movement, pain or weakness
- Difficulty raising your arm or reaching around your back
- If your scars are painful, sensitive, tight or numb
- If you are experiencing cording and adhesions
- If you notice swelling to your chest wall, arm, and or hand
Treating scars is an important part of the healing process after mastectomy, lumpectomy and reconstructive aftercare. Massage therapy done locally on newly healed scar tissue can reduce and softens the build-up of fibrous tissue.
The work is rarely painful – for both new and old scars and functional changes after one session can be profound. Lumps, gaps, ridges, holes, bumps, knots, and strings in the tissue rapidly smooth out and cosmetic change is possible.
Using gentle, mindful scar techniques it is possible to improve arm and shoulder movements and overcome discomfort.
Scar work sessions can also be accompanied with manual lymphatic drainage to further support your recovery.
