Caesarean Scar Therapy

The decision to give birth via Caesarean surgery may depend on a variety of factors and in some cases, may be the safest option for delivery for mother or baby. Whether planned or not, there are a number of risks associated with caesarean surgery, and one of those is post-surgical pain and dysfunction caused by scar tissue.


Are experiencing any of the following on or around your scar?


reduced skin mobility

pain or increased sensitivity

numbness or reduced sensation

pulling or tugging feeling within your pelvis

increased urinary frequency or urgency

chronic lower back and pelvic pain

secondary infertility issues

If you answered yes to one or more of the above, then Caesarean Scar Therapy can provide a gentle approach to alleviating pain or discomfort associated with your scar. It can facilitate the healing process post-surgery and improve mobility and function not just around your incision site, but also other areas of your body that have been affected by your scar.


It is never too late to start therapy, and many women have reported significant relief from pain related to their scar several months, or even years, after giving birth!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to start treatment?


You may begin treatment as soon as your incision has healed completely, which is typically from 8 weeks post-surgery.

How does C-section Scar Therapy Feel?


C-section scar therapy is an effective, non-invasive therapy that incorporates the use of remedial massage techniques, myofascial release, cupping, and Gua Sha to the abdomen, on and around your scar.

How many treatment sessions will I need?


The number of treatment sessions recommended varies from person to person and depends on the nature of your scar, how old your scar is, and how your body responds to therapy.
