Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy®

Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® is a technique designed for increasing circulation to trouble areas, beginning at the base of the spine and translating upward. SDTT® focuses on the speed of strokes, and allows the nervous system to change its holding patterns that have been learned due to stress, posture and injury.

Practitioner: Beverley Spidle

Best suited for: any acute or chronic condition that requires deep tissue work

Best suited for: headache & jaw pain sufferers; recent sprains and strains
