Creating scar tissue is our body’s way of mending trauma. However, these adhesions often leave us compromised with tension, restriction, and disorganization. Sharon Wheeler jokes about this being a “design flaw” because such compensations often lead to future complications. But, what if… we could “erase” the scarring, and integrate the tissue back into the fascial web?
In this second session about Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork approach, Andrea Clusen and Jeannie Kelley look at it through the lens of biotensegrity and examine how scars can influence areas both locally and body-wide. We will also shed light on the effects of some common surgical procedures, and start to imagine new possibilities for post-operative surgical outcomes.
As we come to understand ScarWork as a form of Structural Integration, we can begin to turn towards permanent solutions. Sharon Wheeler calls this “reverse engineering”.
