The Miracle of Scars
Scars do the important work of protecting, healing and binding us back together after injury, surgery, illness, infection or childbirth. They are a beautiful fact of life and tell our story. Scars sometimes don't know when to stop doing what they do best, which is to bind us together. Scars that have overgrown can also inhibit optimal circulation and posture. When scar tissue grows systematically over years, it can also cause pain or restrict movement or sensation, impeding proper function of muscles, organs and glands. People often don't realize that mesh of scars reach far into the body beyond the site of the original injury.
Scar Tissue Remediation
Scars that inhibit our ability to experience pleasure, sensation and movement anywhere on the body can be reduced with healing touch. Manual manipulation techniques to remedy scar tissue can encourage tissue regeneration, often bringing back feeling to scar sites, making scars more pliable, less painful and often less visible. Andy’s somatically informed hands-on techniques learned from the pioneering body worker and scar tissue remediation expert, Dr. Ellen Heed, bring needed blood flow and lymphatic drainage to scar sites to help restore them to healthy, more flexible tissue. During each session, he teaches clients techniques that enable them to facilitate their own healing process. Most people report noticeable changes in one or two sessions.
“Walking has become easier with less pulling and tugging. It’s violating to get pulled when walking, and emotions come up, but much less since we began our work. It’s empowering to realize that there is hope for relief.” - L.B.
"Andy worked on an old but major scar. After one session, my scar felt more supple, mobile, and was less visible." - F.P.
"Over 20 years ago I was in a car crash, had multiple surgeries and ended up with a lot of scar tissue and debilitating pain. I've sought treatment many times over the decades and was always told there wasn't much that could be done. I was beginning to lose hope that I would ever live a pain-free life. A few sessions with Andy have significantly decreased my daily pain levels and also increased my tolerance for activity before I start to have pain. He's given me my life back after 20 years." - R.M.
"Andy Stout is a magician with scar tissue. I was having tightness and tenderness in my forehead that quickly turned to headaches whenever I needed to concentrate. I had invisible scars from a childhood accident and a more recent surgery that were affecting me. I've only had two sessions, and I'm already having fewer headaches. The unexpected bonus is my face is back to being more symmetrical. I love it." - J.R.
