I was reading a list, something sent in the letter that holds all kinds of health articles at work. On the list was a brief description of how massaging scars helps them disappear.
It’s interesting, it’s embodied, it’s clear. There are scars on us. Touching those scars enables the skin to further heal. Touching scars enables them to fade.
I’m no medical person, but I know that a scar is already evidence of healing having happened. Scars are, in my way of thinking, the finishing touch on the healing process.
They are reminders but even reminders can fade. The healing will be in the skin. The body will keep the memory, but the constant reminder can fade. That’s refreshing.
