Scar Tissue Therapy

Living with Diabetes means lots of injections. While they may seem small, every injection causes micro-trauma to the body. This trauma can affect insulin delivery, movement, posture and emotional well-being. Luckily, manual therapy can help!

Scars = Trauma

All scars, no matter how small leave an impact on the body. The hundreds of thousands of injections you endure as a type 1 diabetic can affect the local tissue, and your body as whole.

The Body

The body stores trauma as tension, which tightens your tissues, decreases blood flow, restricts movement, and impedes cellular waste removal.

The Mind

 Our traumatized tissues often become "holding sites" for emotions. Scar tissue therapy can help to relieve those stuck feelings, leading to better overall health. 

Blood Glucose Control

Most importantly, scar tissue at common injection sites leads to poor insulin delivery and high blood sugars. SCT can help break up the tissue and keep your sugar levels optimal.

What does Scar Tissue Therapy look like?

Scar tissue therapy utilizes a combination of hands-on techniques, with different tools such as cups, stones or oils to help break up adesions, free stuck tissue and restore proper tissue movement.

Couldn't I just massage my own scar tissue?

Sure you could, we actually welcome that as part of your diabetes treatment regimine! However there are certain techniques that should only be used by professionals, that can bring about some real positive change to your injection sites. Plus theres some places that you inject that are TOUGH to reach! (thats right, im talking about the twist to the opposite butt cheek injection)
