Almost all adults will have a scar of some sort somewhere on their body. Reading this article will give you an insight into how to decide if your patient’s scar is contributing to their symptoms and how to work with the tissue to allow the return of proper alignment, free movement and more normal looking skin. As the author says, “If I can get the scar unstuck the tissue ‘goes home’.” This article has been extracted from chapter 9 of the book Scars, Adhesions and the Biotensegral Body by Jan Trewartha and Sharon Wheeler.

Sharon Wheeler had an unconventional early schooling which gave her a taste for the unusual. She found a welcome home at Esalen Institute and taught Esalen’s Massage program in the sixties. Sharon was fortunate enough to study with Dr Ida Rolf, PhD, who trained her in Structural Integration in the summer of 1970. Further training in Rolf Movement and Advanced Structural Integration in the seventies consolidated her skills in this work. Her love of working with people and attempting the apparently impossible, combined with a particular skill in sensing disruptions to the body’s three-dimensional flow have combined to generate Sharon’s two ‘discoveries’: ScarWork and BoneWork. She teaches these new modalities in workshops around the world. She maintains a private practice in Structural Integration at home in Port Orchard, Washington, USA.
Sharon’s society affiliations include: Guild for Structural Integration, Rolf Institute for Structural Integration, International Association for Structural Integration, Fascia Research Society, and NCBTMB workshop provider.
