Gentle and mindful scar techniques are an important part of the healing process for mastectomy, lumpectomy, c-section, hysterectomy, and reconstructive surgery (TRAM, DIEP & TUG Flap) and cosmetic surgeries.
Scar care enhances your recovery and is very helpful for cording (axillary web syndrome), adhesions and radiation induced fibrosis relating to cancer treatment.
Using gentle scar care techniques it is possible to improve range of movement e.g arm and shoulder movements and helps relieve discomfort and tightness.
Scar care can be accompanied with Manual Lymphatic Drainage to further support your recovery.
