Connective Tissue Therapy
The manipulation of fascia, effectively promoting vitality, relief from chronic pain and improves posture.
Realigns the deeper layers
Connective tissue massage is a form of intense massage that aims to release myofascial (connective tissue) restrictions in the body, and to break up any restrictive scar tissue. It has also been known to help relieve chronic tension, to increase the bodys range of motion, to improve posture and to enhance the natural harmony of the entire body and mind.
Connective tissue massage is also said to restore the length and flexibility to the fascia (the fiberous tissue that surrounds the muscles and organs), by normalizing the tissue and by improving the strength and overall health of the entire fascial system (connective tissues throughout the entire body).
connective tissue massage borrows many of its techniques from traditional Swedish massage. However the pressure that a massage therapist applies during a connective tissue massage is more intense, and massage oil or lotion isnt typically used.
The strokes of this type of massage are slower and more pressure is applied in order warm the muscle tissue and reach the deeper layers of muscle. Although having a connective tissue massage shouldnt cause you any pain, its often less relaxing and less comfortable then a traditional Swedish massage. Most practitioners ask that their clients tell them immediately if the stroke pressure is too intense.
During a session, the massage therapist will focus on releasing tension from the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (or connective tissues) with deep, intense strokes. When a therapist locates a chronic knot (also referred to as an adhesion), they will often recommend that a client adapt a total lifestyle change - which may include exercises to help improve posture, balance, movement, and relaxation. These steps are complementary to your weekly connective tissue massage sessions.
