When I see an infant/toddler needing scar release, the surgical healing must be complete. I also like to have mom connect the dots during the session to make her an active part of the process rather than just being an observer. If she can feel the tissues release, she can “get it.”
An adult had her thyroid removed years ago with two more recent operations to “correct” the original scarring. In our craniosacral fascial world, her onion consists of at least three separate surgeries plus the original trauma that may have caused the thyroid issue. The binding down of the craniosacral fascial web over time is now significantly contributing to her chronic neck pain.
She holds the left, center and right areas of her scar with her index finger as I am helping the body release the strain from the back of her neck. We discovered that her restricted craniosacral fascial web has extended into her back and head, causing seemingly unrelated issues.
If I ruled the world, scar release would follow every surgical procedure.
