Bindegewebsmassage Bindegewebsmassae

also known as Connective Tissue Massage (CTM)

A reflexive therapy of the connective tissue, this structured medical massage protocol was developed by a German Physiotherapist and enjoys widespread use in Europe. The technique is particularly useful for difficult to treat conditions, including most inflammatory conditions, adhesions, breathing problems, menstrual problems, frozen shoulder, blood pressure, migraines, sinus conditions, to name a few. Treatments engage the reflexes of the connective tissue and the autonomic nervous system to bring on powerful healing responses in the body.

All treatments begin at the sacrum, activating the parasympathetic portion of the autonomic nervous system. Treatments are generally given to the client in a seated position; the client wears underwear and a hospital gown.

Each course is constructed of 4 modules which are 4 hours each. For the Basic Bindegewebsmassage course each student is required to receive one Basic sequence session (approximately 1/2 hour) from a classmate or professional between the first and second weekend of the class. Courses are only open to health professionals. Sixteen CE hours are awarded to massage therapists and body workers for each completed course. Nancy Toner Weinberger is the instructor for all classes.
