Scar Massage and Management

As the body heals a wound after surgery or injury, a scar often forms as a natural part of the body's healing process. This process begins almost immediately but can take up to two years to complete.


Positive scar management including scar massage is essential in maintaining correct movement and function of the affected area as scars, especially deep scares can cause:

  • A loss of movement in tendons, joints and muscles.
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • interruption to the correct lymphatic flow.

Scar Massage Benefits

  • Restore collagen in the skin
  • promotes the growth of new tissue
  • increase local circulation to promote healing 
  • improve scar appearance
  • reduce tightness and pain

When to begin Scar Massage

It is best to begin managing your scar with scar massage as soon as the wound has healed, typically 2 to 3 weeks after surgery or injury, though this may be longer depending on the nature of your scar.
