ScarWork was developed by American Rolfer, Sharon Wheeler and is done to improve feeling and functionality in the scar and surrounding tissues, creating better movement between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle.

Treatments stimulate the circulation, lymphatic and nervous system to promote tissue health. Visually, scars can appear smaller, lighter, and less prominent, but the main emphasis is on underlying tissue changes.

Tightness in surrounding tissues can be reduced and muscle function in the area improved. Knots and tight ropey scars can be softened and loosened; ridges and holes minimised.
