Traumatic Scar Tissue Management

Massage therapy principles, practice and protocols

£48.00 GBP / $59.95 USD Free delivery in the UK and USA

The management of scar tissue is a huge and growing problem for massage and other manual therapists.  Many are afraid to deal with it but research has showed that appropriate massage treatment can have significant results both physically and psychologically.

Existing books have chapters on the problem but there is no practical manual available on the subject at the present time which tells the therapist what to do (and what not to do). This book fills that gap, explaining the physiologic and pathophysiologic background, and providing practical guidance about how to help patients.

  1. Introduction
  2. Skin and fascia
  3. The lympathic system
  4. Neurology
  5. Wound healing and scars
  6. Burns, mastectomies and other traumatic scars
  7. Trauma
  8. Communication and the therapeutic relationship
  9. Assessment and treatment
  10. Client and therapist self care

Appendix: Massage therapy research resources
