Bindegewebsmassage is a German connective tissue massage technique used to address a multitude of illnesses and conditions. The basic technique, applied primarily to the back and chest while seated, works reflexively via the autonomic nervous system. It is a simple, elegant fascial technique applied in a short 30-minute session providing deep relaxation. The results are often quite notable and can be even more profound with a series of three or more sessions.
Bindegewebsmassage can be utilized to effectively treat a variety of health concerns including arthritis, sciatica, asthma, menstrual cramps, migraines, neurological dysfunctions, provide pain relief, and support healthy digestion and reproductive health.
