18 Hour Scar Tissue Management: Priniciples, Practice & Protocol
This highly practical course is aimed at assisting health care professionals with the development of their clinical expertise – enabling them to work safely and effectively with patients with problematic scars of varying etiology and through the various stages of accidental or surgical trauma recovery.
The material covers the science of wound healing and scar formation (normal and abnormal), pathophysiological scar etiology and considerations for bodywork during the various stages of healing and mature scar formation. Trauma sensitive considerations and communication strategies and are also covered. The course includes instructor demos and participant exchange (assessment and treatment) – including methods/tools for evaluating and tracking treatment outcomes.
The overarching learning outcome is to assist the professional with improving their critical thinking, clinical reasoning and scar treatment skills in order to achieve consistently safe and effective clinical outcomes.
Students will be encouraged to share their scar tissue experiences, interact with other therapists in group discussions and will have the opportunity to record demos from instructors to have for their own reference.
Nancy combines years of research with traumatic scar clients and her certification in MLD to develop a protocol that combines gentle hands-on techniques to facilitate the best healing environment.
