This workshop will focus on providing clear explanations concerning the aetiology and pathophysiology of pathological or non-pathological scars, fibrosis, adhesions, densification and healing. The workshop is most suited to qualified experienced manual therapists.The therapeutic efficacy of bodywork therapy, specific to scars and adhesions, and its effect on human tissue has been, to date, poorly understood. Medically qualified professionals wish to work with manual therapists that provide soft tissue interventions that are safe, appropriate, effective, and science based.
The workshop is supported by short keynote presentations concerning current research and evidence based therapeutic interventions. Most of the time is spent developing manual palpatory tactile skills and soft tissue interventions for therapeutic success. With three therapists to a table there will be ample time for comparison, support, feedback and learning.
