How can Caesarean Scar Massage help?

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

A scar can have a lifelong effect both physically and mentally. Scar tissue has the potential to spread in any direction including internally throughout the body. It can also restrict movement or function anywhere in the body from a joint to an organ.

Scar tissue release therapy is extraordinarily simple to learn, easy to apply and gives powerful results that can prevent a lifetime of complications and pain.

We need to understand the physical long term consequences of having a caesarean birth, and how to care for the scar and deeper layers beneath.

There are many issues that can be caused by the scar tissue under and around the incision area of your abdomen.

Some of the issues reported by women who have scarring to their abdominal area are

Pain on intercourse

Pain on ovulation

Pain on passing urine or opening bowels

Impaired bladder and bowel function and control

Poor postural alignment, reduced activation of the pelvic floor

Inability to repair abdominal diastasis (separation of the tummy muscles)

A weakened core system.

Loss of sensitivity

Lower back/ pelvis pain

Exercise, mobilisation and massage of the scar are essential for freeing up deeper layers of scar tissue and helping to improve posture, mobility, core stability, reduce discomforts, improve fertility....

We are now offering regular Scar Massage workshops, for small groups. These can really help. It is recommended you do three of these workshops 1-2 months apart so you can practice the techniques between sessions and build upon them in each workshop.

If you prefer a 1:1 sessions please email for more details.
