What is Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy?

Essentially, it is a deeply stilling form of manual therapy that allows the body to re-instate its deepest form of energetic status. This is achieved by allowing the pulse of the Lymphatic System to symbiotically correspond with the body’s connective tissue. When the two combine, under a specific pulse activated by the practitioner, the body begins to respond and thus there is a certain flow in its deepest and most natural innate state. The latter is also known as the esoteric pulse (inner-most pulse) by those who understand the body as being energy first before it is function. Hence, the therapy is denoted by its esoteric impulsed nature.

Note: the word ‘esoteric’ is used throughout this website by its ancient meaning and not by its erroneously adopted more common assumed meaning. The word means inner-most in its most basic understanding. From there, that is, if the meaning of inner-most is known, there is a lending that allows its truth and thus its intended meaning to be known. In ancient Greece, the Pythagoreans understood the inner-most as being the pulse or beat of the Soul.


Serge Benhayon first developed this form of healing in early to mid-1999. It was an impress that naturally flowed from his vast knowledge of Esoteric Healing. From there it was a natural extension of his way and approach to the Healing Arts and Sciences that led to the forming of this new and as many will attest to, deeply effective form of therapy.

How can it help?

Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy supports the body to restore its own true energetic flow. Once our own true form of energetic flow is reinstated, the tissue follows, allowing for greater ease and flow within the function of the body. This can be experienced as a deep form of relaxation, spaciousness within the body and an unwinding of previously bound up tissue. Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy is an extraordinarily easy to apply technique that activates the body to deeply self-heal. Many ailments are naturally addressed as the body seeks then finds its own innate essence. The key in its application is not the technique itself, for that is easy to do. And hence, it is within the developed energetic quality of the practitioner applying the technique that determines the true effect of its results.


Physiotherapist Kate Greenaway  conducted a  research program based on pain management using Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy. The results showed a significant and sustainable reduction in pain levels —- fifty (50) subjects had weekly connective tissue therapy sessions for 6 weeks and were tested with the visual analogue pain scale, the general well-being questionnaire and the Quebec pain functional scale.
