Improving Scar Tissue with Rolfing
Rolfing is an effective way to treat scar tissue. It was developed in the 1930's by Dr. Ida Rolf. She originally called it structural integration which is what it does. The use of pressure assists in the untangling of tissue. Rolfing is a great option for people with contracture scars and hypertrophic scars. You may find contracture scars post burn. The tissue tightens and can impair mobility. Hypertrophic scars are raised, red scars that are painful and itching at the site. The tissue can present this way following an injury or surgery. It can appear at the surface of the skin or beneath it. This gradual process can bring great relief to the area. The tissue is loosened and softened over a series of visits reducing discomfort.
