Hi everyone! We have an exciting series of Open Houses coming up and we are starting things off with a bang. This topic is not often talked about and most mamas affected by it, don’t even know what we at CMMT can do to help. Are you ready for it?... C-section scars!
Recovery from a cesarean section poses added challenges to a mother’s body. In addition to the typical healing of the postpartum body, a c-section mama is recovering from abdominal surgery. It’s not often thought of in this way but a c-section is major surgery. During this surgery, incisions are made through many layers of tissue. The body’s healing creates a spider web of adhesions that can restrict movement between tissue layers and this scaring can affect movement and mobility throughout the body.
Over a series of massage appointments, we work through tissue layers gradually and encourage healing from the superficial level of the skin right down to the internal organs. We also teach techniques that a woman can use on herself to begin the scar healing process. These are followed by more specialized techniques applied by a massage therapist to address deeper adhesions.
We want to get your healing started! If you have had a c-section then you don’t want to miss this Open House. Come down to our clinic on Wednesday October 19 from 7:00 - 8:00pm. We will send you home with a series of techniques that you can use at home to begin your own healing journey.
If you are not already on our mailing list then click the CONTACT tab near the top of the page and send us an email so we can send you all the information. The Open House is free but registration is required due to space limitations.
