Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy®

SDTT® is a vigorous manual therapy that addresses deep muscles without the use of high pressure.

What is the aim of SDTT®?

Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® aims to restore your body back to optimal alignment.

Your body has made layers of adjustments and accommodations over time due to various postures, activities, injuries, and emotional states you have experienced during your lifetime. SDTT® works through these adjustments and compensations in an efficient, effective manner.

Assessment and treatment are seamlessly integrated in SDTT®. This means that your therapist is reacting to the cues your body provides during the manual therapy, and making adjustments to their actions as they work.

Why does SDTT® work?

Contracted muscles take up a lot of energy!

By returning your body to optimal alignment, you are returned to a state of healthy efficiency. Even internal organs are given their proper space to function optimally!

With your body is back in alignment, it is able to effectively continue its role in maintaining your state of physical and mental well being.

Is SDTT® focused entirely on muscles?

No. In addition to muscles, SDTT® addresses joints, fascia, ligaments, tendons, nerves, circulation, even your internal organs (indirectly).

In fact, one of the main benefits of the SDTT® approach is how it addresses your complaint within the context of your whole body. This approach focuses on the source of your problem, and thus avoid simply “chasing the problem around”.
