This workshop is for any woman who has ever had a c-section.
How much information did you get about how to look after your scar?
Do you know what’s going on beneath your scar?
How can you improve the look and feel of your scar and also reduce the risk of issues linked to the scar?
Scar tissue therapy is generally overlooked by health professionals as they fail to acknowledge the physiological extent these scars affect the body. As a scar tissue therapist who’s worked on 100’s of scars, I understand that even the slightest restriction in the body’s connective tissue (fascia) that is weaved throughout our body, can have major repercussions from one end of the body to the other.
Scar tissue release therapy is extraordinarily simple to learn, easy to apply and yields powerful results that can prevent a lifetime of compensation, complications and pain. Women need to understand the physical long term consequences of having a c-section birth, and how to care for the scar and deeper layers beneath. It is so important to give your abdomen some real TLC. There are many issues that can be caused by the scar tissue under and around the incision area of your abdomen.
Some issues I have encountered are, pain on intercourse, impaired bladder and bowel function and control, poor postural alignment, reduced activation of the pelvic floor, inability to repair abdominal diastasis (separation of the tummy muscles), pinned and pouch-like tummy and a weakened core system.
C-Section births are occurring now for every 1 in 4 babies born in the UK. As this is a common operation, it is sometimes overlooked as in fact being a major form of abdominal surgery.
There are lots of techniques you can learn to get your scar looking good and for your body to feel like it is functioning better.
Mobilisation and massage of the scar are essential for freeing up deeper layers of stuck scar tissue and helping to improve posture, mobility, core stability, reduce pain, improve sex life plus many other benefits!

What to Wear
Loose comfortable clothing is preferable. If you wish, you can massage over clothing (a thin baggy T shirt works best), there is no expectation for you to reveal your belly if you don’t want to.
What to Bring
Please bring a couple of pillows to support your head and neck so you can see your abdomen when massaging it, and a small towel to tuck into your clothing so you don’t get oil on them. If you have any allergies please bring your own oil otherwise coconut oil will be provided on the day.

You should be at least 8 weeks postnatal with a healed scar to attend the workshop. There should be no open areas, scabs, oozing or bleeding from your wound. You will benefit at any stage after birth, every if you are years postnatal. We allow for small numbers per workshop to give adequate focus to each individual. If you are bringing your baby, please ensure that he or she is safe in a bumbo, car seat, on the mat or bouncer during the course.
