Scar Tissue 

A simple scar from childhood accident to major surgery can have lifelong effects both physically and mentally. Scar tissue has potential to spread in any direction including internally throughout the body. It can also restrict movement or function anywhere in the body from joints to organs. The slightest restriction in the elaborate matrix of facia can have major repercussions from one end of the body to the other. Acupuncture, cupping therapy and Gua Sha therapy can help break down old scar tissue and repair proper functioning to the body.
