Jan Trewartha
Founder and Director @British Fascia Symposium
Jan has been in healthcare since 1979, originally training as a State Registered Nurse. Through her school, Body in Harmony Training, Jan runs a variety of light touch therapy courses including Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork for which she was the first accredited tutor in the UK. Having had surgery in Great Ormond St. Hospital as a young child, resulting in major scarring, Jan was treated by Sharon Wheeler; this has given her an awareness of the effect of adhesions and empathy with her clients. Apart from a missionary zeal for spreading the word about the effects of scarring on the body, Jan’s passions are for travelling and for anything that gets her outdoors and moving.
