Massage Therapy Glossary



Bindegewebsmassage is a Connective Tissue Technique (CTT) or Connective Tissue Massage (CTM). It was created in Germany by Elizabeth Dicke in 1929. The therapist works with the loose connective tissue which forms both superficial and deep fascia. This web of tissue provides connection between structures throughout the body.  The treatment can be 30 to 75 minutes in length, and no oils or lotions are used. A treatment plan is a series of treatments that can include up to 20 sessions, depending upon the needs of the individual patient, and their desire to relearn patterns in their body. The treatment is given with the client in a sitting or lying position.
