Massage - Connective Tissue

 



Connective Tissue Massage is an intense but non-invasive technique which does not involve the use of oil or lotion, for releasing myofascial restrictions (refer also to Myofascial Release Technique from which this therapy derives).

All the structures in the body are surrounded, protected and supported by superficial and middle layers of connective tissue, otherwise known as fascia. Fascia is a continuous elastic sheath that provides structural support for the skeleton and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, organs, etc.). Connective Tissue Massage manipulates fascia, effectively promoting relaxation, vitality and increased awareness. It can be of benefit to almost anyone, as it can relieve chronic tension, improve posture and relieve painful symptoms of chronic diseases such as Arthritis, Tendonitis, TMJ, and Sciatica.

Treatments take place on a massage table for which the client will be appropriately unclothed. Feedback is encouraged during the session so that discomfort can be minimised.
