Scar Tissue Massage:
Scars are the principle way the body knits itself together following injury or inflammation. For some individuals scars can pose a number of problems. If the scar is thick in texture or bound to underlying tissues, it may restrict movement, catch on clothing, cause irritation to the skin, create a local pulling sensation and can result in local edema.
