C-Section Scar Work
We are looking for a few volunteers who have had a C-section within the last Year or 2.
Tuesday Aug 30th We need a few volunteers between 10 am and 11am. We are also looking volunteers for other future dates for Practice.
In the past we have hired Linda Hickey from Calgary Maternity Massage who specializes in Prenatal and Postnatal Massage to come to the clinic and teach ALL of our therapists C-Section scar tissue work.
We have currently been working with many Mom’s who have had C-sections and have found massaging the scar has dramatically improved the healing of the scar. One of the biggest things we have noticed is awareness, many Mom’s have no idea that there is a lot you can do for your scar and your recovery post C-section.
In 2014 I (Vanessa) had a C-section. During my recovery I wanted to know what would be the best for me to heal and allow me to get back to exercise and normal life again. A physiotherapist friend of mine Danielle Kaine from Rundle Physiotherapy (whom had 2 c-sections of her own) said the biggest regret she had post c-sections was that she didn’t get her scar worked on within a year. So taking her advice I had a series of treatments focused on my c-section scar. Nathalie Trottier an Osteopath at Consensio Clinic was an integral part of my scar work. Within 2 treatments my scar had loosened up, the pain had decreased and I was on my way to being able to start (moderate) exercise again.
All of our Therapists have participated in extensive continuing education for Prenatal Massage. We have focused a lot of time into training our therapist to treat the pregnant body. So we thought it was appropriate to continue our level of care for our clients after the baby is born.
