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 light touch, restorative approach can effect  near-instant tissue change and can be surprising in its results.

The 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. 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.

Which course to choose?
The ScarWork course is taught by Jan either over four consecutive days, or as 2 x 2 days.  Different students have different learning requirements and time challenges.  The 2 x 2 day format includes a home practice element, requiring students to work on two people with scarring in between trainings  and bring the results to part 2 for discussion and feedback; this helps consolidate the learning from part 1.

The 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.

Please watch this video which is just 6 minutes long, from someone who received ScarWork in an emergency situation, in order to understand the potential of it.

You are encouraged to volunteer your own scars for work to experience this first hand. We will also have a variety of scar models (members of the public) joining us for Clinical 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.

Following completion of the four days’ training, students will have learned:

  • The tension-compression nature of the body and how scars can affect it.
  • How to identify patterns of tension in a scar and under the skin.
  • How to identify the local/global affect scars and adhesions may be having on a client.
  • 20+ techniques for working with scars and adhesions.
  • How to identify the epidural site and relieve the effects of epidurals.
  • The difference between hypertrophic and keloid scars and how to approach them,
  • The power of light touch work in ScarWork.
  • How to follow the tissue as it replays the trauma of surgery or accident.
  • The emotional effects of scarring and adhesions.
  • How to work when mesh has been inserted into a surgical wound.
  • The importance of integration and how to facilitate it.
  • The contraindications and red flags for working with scars.
  • The confidence to work with whatever scars clients may have and how to explain to the client the possible effects of those scars on the body.

A certificate of competence will be issued at the end of the four days
