Surgery, burns, sport injury, accidents … let’s talk about scars! What are they? What causes our natural repair process to go sideways? What can our hands do about it when the process goes awry? Are there things we can do in the early stages of scar tissue development to reduce the incidence of problematic scars – supporting a better outcome for our clients? Applying her 30+ years of clinical experience and literally, tons of chewing up and digesting fascia and wound healing research, Cathy will endeavour to answer these and all your pressing scar tissue questions. And … of course she will address how to move our hands around in a scar/fascia-meaningful way!
