Connective Tissue Therapy
The connective tissue within our bodies confirms that no part of the body is separate from any other. The primary role of connective tissue is to protect and support the body’s supple, pain free movement. When inner tension is experienced as a result of physical, mental and/or emotional stress the connective tissue hardens and compresses affected areas, often producing rigidity and pain. Therefore connective tissue strongly influences fluidity of movement, posture and our general sense of well-being and vitality.
Connective tissue flows throughout the mechanics of our bodily systems and from it we are provided structure, support and connection from within our organs through to our muscles, tendons, joints, limbs and ultimately our movement, or the way in which we carry our bodies. Its soft tissue network also supports vitality, ease of movement and is essential for inter-connectedness and communication between all structural areas of the body including communication between our precious organs and bodily systems.
Connective Tissue Therapy supports the release of inner tension while re-configuring the body’s natural homeostatic inner pulse of harmony. To support a client with maintaining a deeply relaxed state is not only beneficial for overall well-being but allows a client the most efficient and complete healing of soft tissue, bone repair and scar healing post-operatively. Experienced practitioners advocate the benefits of connective tissue therapy to maintain free flowing movement, flexibility of limbs and the integrity of postural structure.
