Integrating scar tissue is Sharon’s original discovery and one that she is continually developing and expanding on. Sharon’s quick and delightful ScarWork transforms the rough fabric of scars into the smooth and resilient three-dimensional fascial web. Over twenty seperate manual techniques used to integrate different qualities of scar tissue into the fascial web. Most will be demonstrated in class.

Scar tissue work uses a casual light touch and the work is rarely painful even for very new scars and the amount of change in one intervention is extensive.
Natural and surgical scars of any age respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement. Scar tissue quality changes quickly and easily. The work starts with the surface layers and goes into the far reaches of the scars. Scar work often results in large whole body integration shifts along with trauma resolution and nerve impaired numbness usually resolves within a session.
Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of connective tissue. Attention to detail, the perception of small increments of change, and a sense of humour are helpful in the study of scars.
Practitioners will learn the techniques well enough to take them home and use them the next day in their private practice. Scar work can fit seamlessly into an SI series or be used as a stand alone intervention session.
In 1970, at the age of 23, Sharon Wheeler trained with Dr. Ida P. Rolf, the founder of Structural Integration. Her contributions to the field are a reflection of her lineage. She trained in the first Rolf Movement Integration class with Judith Aston in 1971.
Sharon was one of the youngest students as well as one of the few women to be trained. Among the students in her class were two MD’s, an aero-space engineer, and a PhD psychologist. Sharon was one of Dr. Rolf’s admitted „artistic experiments”.
Is a human biologist and psychologist. His area of expertise is fascia research. He graduated from the University of Heidelberg in 1980 with a degree in psychology. 1977-1983 he trained as a Certified-Advanced-Rolfer and 1984-1987 as a Feldenkrais teacher. In 2006 he received his doctorate in human biology from the University of Ulm. His doctoral thesis on active fascial contractility was awarded with the Vladimir Janda Prize for Musculoskeletal Medicine. Schleip was co-initiator of the first International Fascia Congress 2007 at the Harvard Medical School in Boston (1st Fascia Research Congress), which marked the breakthrough for modern fascia research, as well as the subsequent congresses. He was a member of the scientific committee at all events in this series.
Schleip has been Director of the Fascia Research Group, Division of Neurophysiology at the University of Ulm since 2008. Schleip has been the organizer the organizer of the event „CONNECT – Connective Tissues in Sports Medicine” in 2013 and 2017 together with the sports physician Prof. Jürgen Steinacker. He is also Executive Research Director of the European Rolfing Association, Vice President of the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation, and Board Member of the Fascia Research Society. As a lecturer he teaches in physiotherapy, orthopaedics and training science. He is the author and publisher of specialist publications on the subject of „Fascia” and is present in the media on this subject.
