    This wouldnt work on old childgood scars would it? I have a "3D" scar lump, it's a bump caused by chicken pox, where i made injury to it and it scarred. It's very noticable since it is not flat.

    Does this work for acne scars? If not could you please do a video on it?,

    Props to this therapist for trying to go a little further into how scarring occurs. Many "experts" tend to shy away from explaining it, either due to a lack of actual expertise or a lack of comfort with articulating it.

    Even if you're not a complete authority on a subject, it's important to challenge yourself in order to grow and develop (as long as you don't misinform anyone!). Well done 🙂

    I have several drain scars on my right leg. I had retroperitoneal sepsis after my cancer surgery. I have scars and I have also lymphedema of the leg. THe areas around the scars are tight and sore right now. Will do your massage on the areas. Thanks, Heather

    Thanks for the video. Could you do a time-lapse video, apanning several treatment sessions, showing how the scar gradually disappears over time?

    Thank you Heather.  You are a jewel!  I am afflicted with arthrofibrosis in my post-surgical knee TKR 7+ years ago.  My flexion is only 65 in that operative knee.  I think your massage techniques are helping me dissipate this tissue and lessen my pain.  I have passed your video onto many others with my problems.

    Thanks for the helpful practice. Although I have question, when would be appropriate to apply this technique after the surgery? Thank you! 🙂

    That was just the info I needed. I am 3 months post op after total knee replacement, I'm done with therapy and I had my last checkup with the surgeon for now. This is the clearest information I have been given re: working with my scar tissue. Thank You!

    Wow. This is a really helpful video. My dog had knee surgery 2 weeks ago and had his stitches removed today. I thought before the sutures were removed that his skin was "holding/adhering" due to a suture placed too deep. Anyway, I'll definitely be using these techniques. Thank you very much for the information!

    I had an accident 6 years back and when i tried to get up i couldn't because my right leg knee tissues was seriously damaged. I don't know what is the name of that part but i can describe a little. The affected part is just left side of patella just like 3:47. Sometimes when i unexpectedly keep my foot on small stone or small puddle, I suddenly fall dawn 🙁 otherwise in walking there is not any problem i walk well but couldn't run fast.. I'll be very thankful if someone helps me!!!! Thanks in advanced 🙁

    Just did this on an old botched surgery chin facial adhesion and can tell a difference. It has been over 4 yrs and the skin was flat due to improper stitching and had a "dent" on the side of my chin.Had an injection in the area to plump it out and it did not work. Can tell a difference just by doing this technique already.
