What is Connective Tissue Massage?
Connective tissue is a structure that is located between cells and tissues and protects our body. It is also called connective tissue. Connective tissue massage refers to the massage method applied with appropriate techniques on this tissue. In connective tissue massage, it is aimed to act on the internal organs associated with the massaged area. The activities of the internal organs and systems in the areas where massage is applied and whose healthy functions are impaired are rearranged in this way. Although massage is applied to muscle tissue, its effect manifests itself on the autonomic nervous system. Together with the applied manipulation methods, it is ensured that the circulation in the body is increased. Thanks to the increased circulation, tissue tension in the massaged area is reduced. Thus, recovery is accelerated.
After its discovery in Germany in 1929, connective tissue massage has become a method used in European and American countries. The techniques applied provide benefits in the diagnosis and treatment processes. There are many scientific studies that show that this massage method, which is applied to the skin and muscles on the surface of the body, has a positive effect on the treatment of different diseases.

What is the Mechanism of Action of Connective Tissue Massage?
There are certain areas in our body that allow connective massage to affect body functions. These areas are called “connective tissue regions”. Massage movements applied with the right techniques in these areas ensure that a positive effect is seen in the internal systems of the body. Organs that develop disease can cause pain to occur in these areas. With this method, the aim is to treat pains and dysfunctions that occur in the organs.
With the method of connective massage, an effect on some systems and organs of the body can be achieved. These areas are; lungs, heart, intestines, bladder, kidney, liver, stomach, pancreas and reproductive system.
How is Connective Tissue Massage Performed?
Connective tissue massage can be applied in different ways according to the problems and emerging needs in the body. The method of application usually involves the pulling technique, which is applied in areas with muscle tissue. The method, which acts on the connective tissue and tissues under the skin, is carried out with pulling movements applied in these areas. Pulling ensures that alerts are generated. The stimuli that occur in these regions also trigger the stimulation in the internal systems of the body. In this way, circulation is accelerated. Increased circulation leads to a reduction in pain and an acceleration of healing.
Ankara connective tissue massage is used in the treatment of some diseases that occur in internal organs and other systems of the body. This physical therapy method can provide improvement in diseases as well as be effective on pain.
