How many fellow Moms out there have new or old c-section scars? If you're like me, you've probably never had it treated! The topic can be very sensitive for some Moms to talk about, and for many, they can't even look at or touch their incision, let alone have someone else see or touch it either.
Shortly after I had my daughter, I returned to my doctor because my incision felt "stuck". Even with bending backwards, I could feel it pulling inside of me and it was causing me pain. He informed me that the only way to release it, was to have more surgery, so I just left it and accepted it as a new part of me, and I have been dealing with the discomfort ever since.
Last year, I became a Registered Massage Therapist and with my new education, I tried applying many of the techniques I learned to my scar in hopes of releasing the area, but I still had no luck. My adhesions are just too deep, and because of this and the discomfort it was causing me, I started discussing the possibility of surgery with my partner. This is not something I truly wanted to do, and it really didn't feel right in my head, but I felt I had no other option.
I attended our annual massage conference this year and I took a course on neurostimulation. I had my c-section scar worked on for about 15 minutes with the Dolphin Neurostim, and I was absolutely blown away at the difference!!!!
For the first time in almost 13 years, my scar was looser! I could bend backwards without it pulling or causing pain and I could actually move it around! My mind was absolutely blown!
I was so impressed by the results, I bought one of the devices! I'm super excited to start using this on my clients and I can't wait to see the difference this makes in other people's lives!
So now, I'm trying to reach out to other people who are either dealing with a similar situation, or people who just have scars in general, so I can start making a difference in their lives too!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
