  • What is P-DTR?

P-DTR is a very gentle, non-invasive, and painless method based on the real time manual effect of particular sensory receptors on the human body.

P-DTR is a unique neurological therapy based on neurology, biomechanics, neurophysiology, anatomy and profound research. It works directly with Central Nervous System and has a logical scientific explanation

Unique to P-DTR as a therapy, is and understanding of the role that sensory nerve endings (which will be called ‘receptors’ henceforth) play in the function and processes of the central nervous system.


P-DTR uses receptors as its entry point to understand, assess and treat all kinds of dysfunction, pain and symptoms that it is possible to experience in the human form.

  • What does P-DTR treat?

To illustrate the scope within which P-DTR is capable of operating, we will borrow a well known analogy from the computer. Computers contain hardware, software and firmware. An example of the hardware would be the screen, the keyboard or the speakers.


An example of the software would be Microsoft Word, or Windows XP. An example of the firmware would be the programme that relays information from the on switch to the hard drive to instruct it to boot up the computer for use.


In the human body we can apply the same analogy. The hardware is the bones, the ligaments, the organs, the nerves and blood vessels and the physical brain itself.


The software is the communication within the CNS and its many interconnected functions. The firmware are the primitive reflexes we are born with as children and some of the autonomic unconscious functions that our bodies perform.

P-DTR as a therapy can be used primarily to treat the software and firmware components of the above analogy, however it also has an important role to play in treating the causes of some hardware problems such as chronic degenerative conditions, and also post operatively when changes have been made surgically to the structure or hardware of the body.

P-DTR is a neurological, reflexogenic system, which efficiently treats a wide spectrum of functional problems and solves musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, hormonal, chemical and emotional dysfunctions.


  • What is the main goal of P-DTR?

 The main goal of the P-DTR treatment is to restore optimal reflexive activity of the nervous system to stimulus.


This includes its motor and gland response, which would result in no symptoms of pain or discomfort perceived by the client, optimal range of motion and accurate appropriate adaptation to the conditions of the external environment.


In other words, Neurological Health restores this way.
