Story

Sharon Wheeler has been using her original techniques to promote changes in scars after surgery or accidents for over four decades. Sharon Wheeler continues teaching around the world and has a number of accredited teachers across Europe sharing these skills. Now research is desperately needed to understand and document the changes in scar tissue which can be remarkable, as seen here from a workshop in UK, January 2019.

In 1970, at the age of 23, Sharon Wheeler trained with Dr. Ida P. Rolf, the founder of Rolfing. Robert Schleip (Director, Fascia Research Group, Ulm University, Germany Research Director, European Rolfing Association) supports the proposal to document and understand the responses in the body to this unique approach to working with scars..

Sharon Wheeler is looking to raise funds to cover a research project to clinically document the changes in scars before and after treatment with ScarWork. Accessing which therapy to choose can be difficult for those in need. Many people live with constant pain and discomfort after an accident or surgery which can usually be helped with ScarWork. Insurance companies and medical practitioners need to see clinical trials proving the efficacy of treatments before they can be approved.

After a couple of sessions with ScarWork, I was impressed to see many of my patient's breast pain had resolved....I would recommend that this treatment should be available to all breast cancer patients" Kelvin Chong, NHS Consultant Breast Surgeon

Help us start this project and enable a scientific understanding of how scars react to ScarWork.

We have our first 'ScarWork Gathering' with Sharon Wheeler, Jan Trewartha and Emma Holly amongst other specialists on 15th September 2019 where trained ScarWork therapists will be uniting and learning. All profits from the event will be put towards this research project.

Meet the Researcher

My name is Dr Beverley de Valois and I am a Researcher in Integrative Medicine in the Supportive Oncology Research Team (SORT) at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. This is part of the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. I have been a researcher in SORT for 20 years, investigating novel interventions that may improve the quality of life for people living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer. Until recently, most of my research focused on acupuncture.

In 2017 I had a life changing experience! I attended a meeting where one of the presentations was about a therapy called ScarWork and the presenter was Emma Holly. I was impressed with this therapy! I thought it could be a solution to some clinical problems I was encountering in my work with colorectal cancer patients.

So, I applied to attend a ScarWork training course run by Jan Trewartha early in 2017. During that course, I experienced firsthand the impact ScarWork could have, even on an almost imperceptible epidural scar. It was another life changing event.

I’ve never looked back! I am fascinated by ScarWork and hooked on finding out more about this intervention from a research perspective. Since 2017, I have been working in SORT to develop a research programme and have been consistently building up a portfolio of small projects with the aid of charitable donations.

ScarWork Crowdfunding gives us our first opportunity to conduct a formal research study. There is a wonderful energy behind this. Two oncologists are working with us and we have developed a very promising research proposal. At this stage, we cannot disclose details, but we are very close to finalising this proposal.

We do need funding to help us to carry out this study. ScarWork crowdfunding has only £1,500 to go to realise its target of £10,000. Please help us to realise this target.

Many thanks

    Hope the research gets up soon. I am in Australia but happy to help. We could probably set up a similar research project here in due course if you are interested. Lyn Guy
