New York, NY, August 10, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Elisabeth Dicke, a former German physiotherapist, developed a systematic, scientifically based treatment method of connective tissue massage (or Bindegewebsmassage) which is now used throughout the world. "Connective Tissue Massage," recently published by Thieme, is a detailed reference guide to using connective tissue massage (CTM), the first of its kind in the English language. This book gives readers the principles, knowledge, and skills to successfully implement CTM into their daily practice.
