Sharon Wheeler’s Scarwork
November 7 @ 10:00 am – November 10 @ 4:00 pm
A well-designed, four-day course that will change how you see scars and the body. The length of the course allows you the time and space to develop your confidence and skills by practising not only on fellow students but on members of the public; this means that you will be able to work on scars immediately on return to your clinic (once insured). Taught by Jan Trewartha, accredited UK ScarWork tutor.
This work is the brainchild of Sharon Wheeler.
Working with scar tissue is like speaking another language in the world of fascia. ScarWork is light, relaxed and effective on most scars. It is easy to learn and a pleasure to do. There are over 20 techniques that are designed to smooth out uneven lumps, bumps, ridges, strings, gaps, and fill holes painlessly. Re-establishing the resilient 3D quality of the fascial web has been known to create better functioning. With the restrictions and adhesions of a scar resolved, impaired nerves can regain sensation and internal organ functions can normalize. Not to mention that the cosmetic effect can be remarkable.
This is a 4-day, 26 hour course. This comprehensive training includes: understanding the emotional effects of scars, scar palpation, the global effect of scars on the fascia, the need for full body integration after treatment with techniques, contraindications and red flags. You are taught 20 techniques but the primary focus is on training you to understand ScarWork as an approach; this gives you a broader comprehension when working with unusual scars. You are encouraged to volunteer your own scars for work to experience this first hand during the first two days and we will have a variety of scar models (members of the public) joining us for practice on days three and four. We aim to bring you to a level of confidence, by the end of the course, that will enable you to start working with scars immediately in your practice.
