Don’t put up with discomfort from a tight, sore scar after your C-section. Book a scar massage session to help improve movement of the tissues.
Tight, sore scar? Then you are not alone. According to research, 41% of C-sections result in tissue adhesions forming from the scar. Adhesions are bands of tissue which form between 2 structures. They reduce the ability of the tissue layers and organs to slide over one another during movement.
You may experience abdominal pain or pain when exercising or lifting, and you may have difficulty activating your abdominal muscles.
Scar massage aims to restore the mobility back to the tissues, to allow the tissue layers and organs to slide over each other again and help you better activate your abdominal muscles.
I have been trained in a variety of soft tissue techniques such myofascial release, instrument assisted massage, sports massage and visceral mobilisation, all of which I can use to help improve tissue mobility.
Book a treatment as a stand alone or with the PhysioNatal Regain exercise programme.

“I am so glad I have found Tanya, just a shame I didn’t find her when I was pregnant because she would have definitely been able to ease my pain in the later stages of pregnancy.
The course of classes have been really helpful in easing my back pain and getting back to the stage of exercising and stretching correctly. Thank you so much Tanya, I am definitely beginning to feel back to my old self prior to pregnancy.”
