Welch Scar Therapy

Welch Scar Therapy


Saw 5 massage therapists before finding Stacey ~ 2 years ago ... won't be looking again as long as she stays in Wilmington. If you're hurting/stressed/have muscle tightness(tension,aches, etc), it won't take her 3 minutes to focus in on the spot(s) where all that emanates from. You might leave feeling slightly "beat up", but will thank her for it, and feel SO MUCH better the next day! :-)

Manual Therapist to the Scars! Specializing in the treatment of complex surgical and trauma scars

I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2004, specializing in Scar Tissue Therapy, Myofascial Release and Therapeutic Massage. Over the years, my focus has been working with clients who suffer from surgical, trauma or burn scar tissue pain and dysfunction, as well as clients who are in various stages of surgery and injury rehab or experiencing chronic pain. I obtained my certification in Sp

**Instant gratification right here**

As soon as I laid eyes on this scar I thought that it would have some good visual changes right away. I knew that a few areas that were bumpy and pulling would likely soften, and maybe some color change.

These are next day results after one treatment, and I still can't believe it. Lumps reduced, skin relaxed, color change.

After. One. Treatment.

In addition to the dramatic change in appearance, this client also reported feeling looser, especially when walking, and yesterday she was able to comfortably wear shoes all day!

Scar Therapy is very gentle manual therapy that works to improve the quality and texture of scar tissue, improving a variety of symptoms. Give me a call, let's chat about how I can help. 910-264-1580

It's C-Section Awareness Month!

In my practice, I hear all too often that women who experience pain and other issues after their C-Section are told that it's normal and nothing can be done about it.

In addition to the numbness, pain and restrictions around the scar, did you know that you can also experience the following symptoms that may be directly related to your scar?

-chronic low back, hip and/or leg pain
-headaches and migraines
-shoulder and jaw tension
-painful in*******se
-emotional distress

Have you been experiencing any of these symptoms since your C-Section? If you have and have not been able to get any relief from conventional therapies, let's try something different. I have several gentle and effective manual techniques to address any symptoms related to your scar.

Have you ever been told that nothing can be done about the pain caused by your post-surgical scar, and that you'll just have to live with it?

We all deserve to feel good. Sometimes the pain and discomfort from scars can prevent us from doing what we want and from feeling good about ourselves.

I can help you and your scar. Call or message me to book a session or for more info.


Sometimes the Universe provides us with exactly what we need to hear, at just the right moment.

Let's talk breast augmentation, reduction and mastectomy scars, and the potential affects they could have on the individual's body. Many women experience tightness, pain, numbness and limited movement in their upper bodies, often referred to as the "Iron Bra". Scar therapy can aid in reducing these symptoms. You don't have to live with scar pain! Call me. I can help.

One in three births result in c-section delivery. Whether planned or unexpected, the resulting scar tissue has the potential to affect your life in a major way.

Common complaints of c-section scars are numbness, pulling, hypersensitivity, and many women have reported feeling a total disconnect from their lower body. Common symptoms of c-section scar dysfunction are chronic back pain, pain during s*x, issues with elimination and pelvic pain.

Anywhere along the spectrum of "it only hurts once in a while" to "I can't stand for anything to touch it", I can help you in your path to healing.

Fabulous Fascia!

What is Fascia?
Fascia is tough connective tissue that creates a 3-dimensional web extending without interruption from head to toe. Fascia surrounds and infuses every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and organ, all the way down to the cellular level.

The fascial system affects every system and function in your body- musculoskeletal, neurological, metabolic, etc. The white, glistening fibers you see when you pull a piece of meat apart or when you pull chicken skin away is fascia.

What is Fascia made of ?
Fascia consists of a complex which has three parts:
1. Elastin fibers - This is the elastic and stretchable part of the complex.

2. Collagen fibers - These fibers are extremely tough and give support to the

3. Ground substance/matrix: A gelatinous like substance that transports metabolic
material throughout the body

What does fascia do?
The fascial system generally supports, stabilizes, and cushions. Fascia creates separation between vessels, organs, bones, and muscles. It creates space through which delicate nerves, blood vessels, and fluids can pass.

What are Fascial Restrictions?
In a healthy state, the collagen fibers wrap around the elastic fibers in a relaxed, wavy configuration. Trauma, repetitive motion, inflammation, or poor posture can cause the fascia to become solidified and shortened. These thickened areas are referred to as a fascial restriction. Fascial restrictions have the capacity of creating up to 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch in a restricted area. That crushing pressure can compromise any physiological system in the body resulting in pain and dysfunction.

The fascia throughout the body is all interconnected like the yarn in a sweater or a complex spider web. A restriction in one area of the body creates tension throughout this web pulling on other distant structures. This explains why some people may have pain that appears unrelated to their original injury. Furthermore, myofascial restrictions do not show up on common standardized tests such as x-rays, MRI, CAT scans, etc.

Fascial restrictions can pull the body out of its normal alignment, compressing joint surfaces and bulging disks, resulting in pain, loss of motion, and weakness.

Scar tissue is like an iceberg. You only see a small part of the scar; the real issue is happening underneath the skin. Scar tissue affects your body's fascial system which can inhibit the way your body moves and feels.

Cool graphic! In addition to leaving the muscle weaker and less flexible, notice how the nerves and blood vessels can become entrapped in the scar tissue. This can cause numbness or hypersensitivity, as well as decreased circulation to the area. I can help you get relief! 910.264.1580


What if...

What if that abdominal scar is the cause of your back pain?

What if that scar from shoulder surgery is the cause of your headaches?

What if that hip replacement scar is the cause of your knee pain?

Scar tissue causes adhesions in your fascia, resulting in symptoms that may not appear to be related to the injury site. If you haven't been able to get relief from your pain, let's try something different. 910.264.1580
