Wouldn't it be great to learn how and when you can use all your current massage and soft tissue skills to help people with their scars?
Working with scars is a popular treatment modality for many massage and soft tissue therapists. However, with so many scar tissue courses around, how do you know which techniques are the best ones for your clients?
The truth is, all touch matters!
There is NO specific scar tissue technique that is suggested to better than another. Most scientific research on scar tissue techniques identifies that working with scars is beneficial but exactly how techniques work is still unclear.
But - what we do know is that we CAN make a difference.

Q. Will I be able to treat all scar types?
A. This course teaches you how and when you can work safely and confidently on and around all types of scars with an emphasis on tissue healing.

You will learn about scar tissue symptoms and the current science and theory on why this occurs and how you can use your current skills to help.
