Scar Therapy Treatment

Got painful scars or looking to lessen their appearance?

Scar treatment might be right for you.


Scars are often a permanent reminder of surgery, trauma, a burn, or wound that has not healed properly leaving dense fibrous tissues on the skin. Scars can be skin color, red, purple, or even pearly white and can lead to pain. Scars are formed when the wound healing process is disrupted by factors such as too much or too little collagen production.

In a Chinese Medicine view of scars, they are a disruption in the normal flow of energy. This disruption can lead to local inflammation and pain as well as distal, downstream, issues.

The establishment of proper flow thru the scar can lead to healing, pain reduction, and overall well-being.

Treatment in and around the scars involves the specific and customized treatment which may include a combination of several therapies such as acupuncture, electroacupuncture, or ATP Resonance BioTherapy™. Treatments work to promote healing and reestablish cell signaling in the scar and increase functioning of the tissues. It is thought that trauma can affect scars and nerves and with scar neural treatments, it can lead to instant and lasting resolution of chronic pain.
