Prior to meeting you will be asked to complete a Women’s Wellness pre-screen which will consider your pelvic health history, history of your scar and lifestyle factors. During the initial consultation we will then spend time discussing your answers, your lifestyle and general wellbeing. Each scar has its own story, as such this can often be quite an emotional process, we take it slowly, I take time to listen. For those who are postnatal this will include a birth debrief too.
Next there will be an assessment of your breathing, posture, core connection and movement, all elements closely linked to and affected by your core. Following this massage and soft tissue release strategies will be used to release any areas that are restricted across the body, this may include breath correction work. This is done slowly and gently with time taken before moving to your abdomen and the scar. Often the scar is the last area to be addressed.
This process may take a number of sessions – it may be that the scar itself is not worked on in the initial session.
