Scar Tissue Therapy

Scar Tissue Therapy and The Healing Process

Scar related issues arise early in the wound healing process. Watch out for any signs of infections and prolonged swelling. These two issues can compromise your healing process and contribute to abnormal scar tissue formation. Though not all scars develop troublesome issues, some do. When this problem arises, scar tissue therapy is typically the best solution. 


The development of abnormal scar tissue puts too much tension in the healing tissues. Not only does this create stiffness and range of motion issues, the tension can compress nerves and restrict blood and lymph flow. This tension is usually the source of pain and pain changes the way you move. 


Michelle Licha-Oros Medical Massage & Lymphatic Drainage Therapy uses gentle myofascial release and manual lymphatic drainage techniques to facilitate the healing process and minimize the impact of scars and adhesions. It’s performed directly on skin without oils or creams with slow sustained pressure on the skin and fascia instead of the "glide" of a traditional massage. This massage therapy technique can relieve the adhesions and pain associated with scars. Mature scars can also benefit from treatment. 


I have experience with a wide range of tissue traumas, including:

  • Joint replacements, tendon and bone repairs

  • Mastectomy, lumpectomy, biopsy, radiated tissue

  • Lipoma and cyst removals

  • Hysterectomies and C-sections

  • Tummy tucks, liposuction and breast reductions

  • Knife and gunshot wounds, dog bites and horse kick injuries
