Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork (2-part)
February 27, 2024 @ 10:00 am – February 28, 2024 @ 6:00 pm
Please note this course will be in TWO PARTS
Part 2: Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th March. Please make sure you are also available for these dates in March.
Timings: 10am – 6pm each day.
This course will change how you view the body. Scars can and often do have a knock-on effect as the fascial restrictions they create, with the resultant tension and torsion, cascade throughout the fascial matrix, creating neural, muscular, skeletal and visceral issues, affecting functionality and range of movement as well as, inevitably, numerous other problems down to cellular level.
This course is open to qualified hands-on practitioners with a minimum of one year in practice and a minimum of Level 3 certification in Anatomy and Physiology. The division of the course into two parts allows you the time and space to develop your confidence and skills by practising not only on fellow students and members of the public during the training, but on family members and friends (unpaid) in between training sessions; this has shown to allow for a better development of understanding and practical skill by the students. Taught by Jan Trewartha, the UK’s first accredited ScarWork tutor, lead editor and author of Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body, and Founder and Director of the British Fascia Symposium and The Fascia Hub.
This work is the brainchild of Sharon Wheeler, who trained with the renowned Ida Rolf.
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 twenty 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 and mobility. More than just passing on techniques, Jan teaches you an approach to scars and adhesions, and how to follow the tissue as it replays its traumatic patterning. Further training on following tissue is available as part of the Fascial Unwinding and Energy Awareness courses we also run.
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.
Training includes covering the emotional effect of scars, and full body integration after treatment. You are encouraged to volunteer your own scars for work to experience this first hand and we will have a variety of scar models (members of the public) joining us for practice sessions. We work 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, once your insurance has been arranged. The two-part structure of the training allows for time to practice on family and friends in the interim, and bring questions to be addressed on part 2.
Insurance: This course is insurable through Balens, Holistic Insurance, BABTAC, IPTI, Graybrook Insurance Brokers, and the FHT subject to your qualifications.
Cancellation policy: Your deposit is your commitment to the course and is non-refundable. If you have paid in full but are unable to attend the course due to exceptional circumstances, you are welcome to transfer your place to someone else as long as they are suitably qualified at a fee of £40. If this is not possible the Principal will look to resolve the situation in a way that is fair to the student and to the school and will if possible transfer you to another course but charge a one-off £40 administration fee. This can only be done up to four weeks before the start of the course. Please note that a minimum of eight students are required for this course to run and if your late withdrawal means the course cannot run, you will be unable to do so out of fairness to the other students. On our side, if for any reason we are forced to cancel, we will offer you a place on another course or refund 100% of all monies paid.
Covid policy: Please note – if required by government or common-sense guidelines, we will instigate precautions as needed to deal with any current virus situations. These may include masks, extra sanitising, and changes in how we run the class to reduce the number of people you are in personal contact with. If you have concerns about any of these precautions, please contact the tutor immediately so that we can discuss how best to accommodate you. Thank you for your cooperation.
