Connective Tissue Massage/Bindgewebs massage– Developed by Elizabeth Dicke of Germany. Technique consists of light strokes focusing on the superficial fascia between the skin and muscles. The tissue is hooked with the fingers of the therapist and dragged or pulled, stretching the skin. No oil is used and the work often leaves a mark somewhat like an abrasion or burn. Working in one area of the body causes a related effect at another area.
Continuum– Developed by Emile Conrad based on her background in movement and dance. Continuum has been successful in working with paralysis and spinal cord injuries. Her system takes into account that the body is 80% water and has emerged from the undulating, watery environment of the embryo. From this she developed a method of movement based on the wave-like movement of the water flowing through our bodies. The method focuses on intrinsic felt movement, not imposed patterned movement. Using breath, movement, sound and meditation, the participant is able to get in touch with their own cranial wave.
