    Wink Scar Massage

    Scar tissue can develop after an injury or surgery, and can effect the skin that you see as well as tissue under the skin you can not. A typical injury or surgical site will develop some amount of scar tissue as part of the natural healing process. If left untreated, this tissue typically adheres to the surrounding skin and tissues restricting range of motion at the joint near it. A good way to treat scar tissue as it forms is to massage it. Daily massage can be performed by your therapist and by you.

    To perform a scar massage, gently rub your fingers over the scar in a back and forth motion using a viscous massage cream, lotion or oil. Normal skin will move freely over the underlying tissues as you rub. Try to find those areas under the scar that do not move easily and focus on those areas. You can massage several times a day for a few minutes at a time as long as you do not cause excessive irritation that continues after you have stopped.

    If there is redness, pain, or oozing from the scar, you should stop and consult with your therapist or doctor. The scar should be healed before beginning massage.

    In my opinion, it is very important to break down the scar.
    This is important from both a pain perspective which may create pain in the area or surrounding area.

    From an energetic perspective such as acupuncture, the flow of qi will be reduced therefore causing local pain or additional complaints either below or above the scar itself depending on the area and acupuncture meridian.

    You can alway inject procaine into the scar itself as well but I prefer either using acupuncture needles, cold laser therapy or microcurrent stimulation
