Connective Tissue Therapy works with gentle hands-on techniques performed with slow and rhythmical motion on various parts of the body. The therapy works directly with both the physical structures of the body (muscles, joints etc) and the energy that flows through the connective tissue system.
The connective tissue system is the bodies soft tissue framework that flows through the entire body within and around the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs. Every part of the body is interconnected via this delicate web of tissue.
The connective tissue – in its ideal and healthy state – allows for expansive, gliding and sliding friction free fluid movements, supports our natural elongated posture and the various body systems to work harmoniously – from the inside out. Energy flows through the connective tissue system which can be pictured like a river flowing everywhere throughout the entire body.
The quality (or state) of the connective tissue in our body holds a direct relationship with our overall level of health and wellbeing. Often when we feel anxious, stressed, unwell, lacking vitality or well being, some form of tension, tightness, stress is present within our connective tissue, affecting the natural and harmonious flow of energy and the proper functioning of the various body systems.
How does Connective Tissue Therapy work?
Connective Tissue Therapy is practiced on the client fully clothed and lying down on a massage table (front and/or back of the body). The gentle hands-on techniques are specifically designed to work with particular muscles, organs and connective tissue areas within the body. The gentle and slow quality of the rhythm of the techniques applied combined with the energetic quality of the practitioner allow for a deeply rejuvenating and relaxing experience.
