About The Event

Scars are not obligated to be problematic. Scar tissue "constructs" us back together when tissue integrity  has been interrupted. If the regulatory mechanisms that guide this process go askew, problematic scars can form. This course will endeavour to answer riveting questions like, what is going on in there and what can my hands do about it? We will explore the primary systems and factors that  influence wound healing and scar formation and dive into how massage/manual therapy (during the process ) can influence better healing outcomes and how to facilitate productive changes after scars have formed. Science/evidence is my jam, so there will be science.... and a healthy dose of heart, humor and hands-on!

Presenter: Catherine Ryan, is a Registered Massage Therapist dedicated to patient-centered care and evidence informed practice. An established continuing education instructor, she has presented at conferences internationally, in the areas of scar tissue management and myofascial pain and dysfunction, which also constitute her clinical practice focus.
