Surgery or traumatic scarring can cause pain or numbness in the scar area; referred pain or lack of sensitivity in other areas not obviously seen to be connected to the scar; and movement restrictions. Scarring, from surgery such as caesarean sections, hysterectomies, appendectomies, knee replacements and traumatic scars can usually be helped by this technique.
It can affect scar tissue in the following four ways:
- By reducing pain or by increasing sensitivity through affecting nerve pathways;
- Scars often change colour to blend in better with the surrounding tissue, due to the increase in blood flow to the scar;
- Scars can often become less indented or lumpy, due to the increase in fluid and lymph to and from the area;
- Energy flow in the body can change as meridians can be ‘unblocked’.
