Scar massage helps to reduce the appearance of scars. It can reduce the size, flatten, improve the colour and texture of scars. It is a very effective treatment with immediate results but also non-invasive and low intensity as this isn’t required to get excellent results.
It can be used on a wide range of scars for improvements in mobility, tissue function and overall appearance as well and helping to reduce other common side effects of scars. As well as helping with the visual appearance of scarring, the massage can also reduce numbness, hypersensitivity, pins and needles, pains, discomfort, and discolouration/hardening of surrounding tissue.
Abdominal massage is a very effective way of easing digestive and gynaecological issues and symptoms. The massage helps reduce inflammation, improve adhesions, relieve pressure, clear blockages, ease bloating and improve circulation. It also helps improve the positioning of the womb and colon. It is a very beneficial treatment for liver, colon, intestines, stomach, gall bladder, lungs, pancreas, kidneys, womb, and ovaries.
During a session you will also be given nutritional advice to support your healing as well as a number of self-help techniques you can do at home, including self-help massage which you’ll be taught in the session. All these techniques are tailored to your individual symptoms and requirements.
Some of the many issues this massage can help are:
- IBS, Bloating, Constipation, Diverticulitis, Crohn’s, IBD, Colitis, Sluggish Digestion, Kidney/Liver/Bladder Issues, Abdominal Pain and Cramps
- Endometriosis/Adenomyosis, Painful Periods, Irregular Periods, Heavy Periods, PCOS, Ovarian Cysts, Hormonal Issues, Fertility, IVF Preparation, C-section and Post Natal Recovery
