A scar is a mark left on the skin or on an internal organ by the healing of a wound, sore, surgery or injury because of replacement by connective tissue of the injured tissue. Scars may result from wounds that have healed, lesions of disease, accidents or surgical operations.
Often a scar carries with it the memory of trauma, fear and pain. This memory can be of physical pain and/or the emotional fear or trauma. The cellular memory of the trauma can block the flow of healing energy within the body and mind. Discomfort and problems may result from the incomplete healing process.
The physical and emotional memory of the event that caused the scar may be released through gentle manipulation of the physical scar.
When a scar has been released there is no restriction of flow of energy, blood circulation and lymph drainage. The body can then complete the healing process.
