N.B. Should there be any issue due to the current pandemic that might in any way affect this course, you will naturally be fully refunded. The venue is intelligently run, students will bring their own couch coverings and water bottles/glasses, and all other necessary precautions will be taken to ensure this is a safe haven for us all.
This course is open to qualified hands-on practitioners with a minimum of one year in practice. 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. Taught by Jan Trewartha, the UK’s first accredited ScarWork tutor and lead editor and author of Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body.
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. More than this, we teach 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.
This is a 4-day, 26 hour course. Training includes 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 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.
