Myofascial Scar Release is a multifaceted approach to working with scars depending on the stage of healing. It is a gentle form of scar release that works within the patient’s comfort level. It can be done during the early stages of healing from a burn, right after surgery or many years later. It is never too late to make changes in your scar tissue! It is theorized that more healing and normalizing of the scar tissue can be done by working gently and not setting off the body’s alarm system which protects against further trauma.
