Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy

Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® or “SDTT®” is a form of complete manual medicine developed by Armand Ayaltin DNM, RMT, RHP.

Armand graduated from Northern College of Massage Therapy in the UK in 1976. SDTT® was born in 1980 of his observations, and he has since spent decades further developing this new and innovative form of therapy.

Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® is a vigorous manual therapy that aims to restore the body back to optimal alignment by addressing deep muscles without the use of high pressure. Layers of adjustments and compensations are worked through in an efficient, effective manner with assessment and treatment being seamlessly integrated. This approach involves addressing a patient’s complaint in the context of their whole body, thus avoiding “chasing the problem around”.

…involves looking at a patient’s pain and dysfunction in the context of their entire body to address the source of the problem and thus avoid simply chasing the problem around.

By returning a person’s body to optimal alignment, they are returned to a state of healthy efficiency (contracted muscles take up a lot of energy!) and even internal organs are given their proper space to function optimally. Layers of adjustments and accomodations the body has made over time to various postures, activities, injuries and emotional states are worked through.

SDTT® addresses not only muscles but also joints, fascia, ligaments, tendons, nerves, circulation, and (indirectly) internal organs.

As with any form of therapy, SDTT® has limitations. However, we think you will be pleased with the results!

Megan has taken both the Introductory and Intermediate courses in Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® and is currently enrolled in Armand’s Mentorship program to complete her Advanced level training.
