Scar tissue remediation is a type of sexological bodywork (also known as somatic bodywork) that involves supporting the client and their body’s communication within the tissues and nervous system. By starting sessions with trust-building nervous system work, the client and I can begin to develop a relationship whereby their body system begins to communicate its needs directly with me. By addressing you and your body in this gentle, nourishing way, we can, as you are ready, begin diving into deeper work. Whether you have known scar tissue, pelvis or abdominal pain or numbness, mobility issues, or organ function issues, we will work together to unlock and release your tissues in order to achieve more sensation, function, and mobility, as well as emotional/energetic healing.

Through a variety of techniques, I am able to address a range of needs: menstruation/fertility related concerns, pregnancy loss recovery, abortion recovery, postpartum recovery (especially perineal and cesarean scars and diastasis), gynecological procedure recovery, menopausal concerns, trauma/injury of the abdomen and pelvis, sexual concerns, abdominal surgery recovery, sexual assault, gut/bowel/digestive concerns, and more.

No matter where you are in your journey, I can support you. I only ask that you be at least 8 weeks post-injury/surgery before we begin. You may be months to many years post-initial formation of your scar or your concern–know it is never to late to start addressing and changing these parts of yourself!

The somatic approach sees you as a whole being: the emotional body, the brain, the nervous system, the energetic body, the spirit, and the physical body. Through our work together we can help you to map your being, better understand your being, unlock stuck or numb parts of yourself, and guide you to taking the best care of your whole self.

My focus is to support women/people who have vulvas/uteruses, especially as it pertains to pelvic and abdominal health. However, I am open to supporting others who have scar tissue concerns as well, so please reach out and we can discover if I am the right practitioner for you.
