Promoting Healthy Scars: The Therapeutic application of silicone cupping
Scar tissue is not the same as pre-injury tissue. The skin and underlying layers of fascia and muscle will not repair with like for like, and so manual treatment of scars should be considerate of the different tissue structures and the stage in scar maturity. Join scar management specialist Emma Holly for an interactive session, focused on hands-on practice of cupping (also known as vacuum massage) to promote healthier scar function while deepening your understanding of safe protocols for treatment.
By the end of the session attendees will be able to:
- Name a key reason to avoid cupping over scar tissue
- Describe why cups can benefit scars
