Why Scar Work Works

Updated: Apr 8

Working on scar tissue with Structural Integration can help to reduce its negative effects on the body. Scar tissue forms as a result of injury, surgery, or trauma. Scar tissue can cause physical restrictions and tightness in the body, which can limit range of motion and cause pain. Over time, this can lead to compensations and imbalances in other areas of the body as the body tries to adapt to these restrictions. By releasing the adhesions and restrictions in the scar tissue, Structural Integration can help to restore mobility and flexibility, and reduce pain and discomfort.

Scar tissue can also cause imbalances in the fascia, which is the connective tissue that surrounds and supports all the structures in the body. When fascia becomes imbalanced, it can pull on other structures, leading to restrictions and compensations in other areas of the body. By addressing the imbalances caused by scar tissue, Structural Integration can help to improve the balance and alignment of the fascia, leading to improved overall function and performance.

Finally, scar tissue can also lead to emotional trauma and stress. Structural Integration can help to release the emotional tension that can be stored in scar tissue, leading to greater emotional and physical well-being. I had one client who had a surgical scar that was more than 50 years old. He noticed tension in the neck and shoulder was letting go as I was working on the scar. The scar physically changed shape. He realized how much stress and strain he was holding on to for all those years.

Overall, by working on scar tissue with Structural Integration, individuals can experience reduced pain and discomfort, improved range of motion and flexibility, better overall function and performance, and greater emotional well-being.
