The above video is a presentation from 2010 dupuytrens symposium.
The presenter reveals the believed complex processes that are taking place at a cellular level and why and how the drug treatment her company promotes may work. She does such an excellent job of explaning the these processes it also reveals how we can help with massage!
To many MT's can't stomach cadaver style lectures so its time to introduce them to a symbolic artifical membrane/membrane's that connect them with the amazing massage they are doing by working with fascia.
Proper clinical trails may be impossible due to the volitility of the condition, indeed one could argue that in pursuing a favourable outcome we meet the neuroplasticity of the brain at it most defensive in obtaining substantive long term elimination of symtoms.

Many thousands of years ago the only way to survive was to fight and kill your opponent or they would kill you.The battle for survival was hard fought and extreme, leading to complete exhaustion of tissue function and a brain snapping test of sanity via atrocity for the mind.
This placed a huge physical and mental strain on the warrior, who, given the chance would prefer to live in peace with his neighbour. But, time and again, he was called to slaughter those who would…Continue

Its already been the subject of many discussions on here, but are there any websites specifically set up to educate new female therapists on exactley how to word their web pages to minimise this occuring.
Here in the UK we've still got therapists web pages listing home phone numbers, full home addresses, and useing wording begging the double entendre.
