Meet The Therapist

John P. Lemme

John has been studying and further developing the methods of Postural Therapy and Postural Strength Training for over 20 years. Throughout his life he has held a tremendous passion for athletics and sports related activities that test the body’s outer limits, as well as giving people hope to heal.

Prior to forming PTX Therapy™, John’s work as a physical therapist included head Rehabilitation Specialist and Fitness Trainer for the world renown Pebble Beach Company. At Pebble he worked closely with Laird Small (Director of Golf – PGA Teacher of the Year) to create a fitness regimen for their world-class Pebble Beach Golf Academy. John then held the position as Senior Therapist and Director of Seminars for The Egoscue Method Clinic in Del Mar, California. Later, in Greenwich Connecticut, the Peak Wellness Center’s Medical Director, author and sports-med physician Carlon Colker, M.D., contracted John to instruct Postural Therapy & Training principles to his Physical Therapy and Personal Training staff and patients.

John has been contracted to speak on the unique nature of Postural Therapy at numerous corporations, and medical & fitness facilities. Furthermore, for several years he performed seminars and lectures about this therapeutic methodology, from Hawaii to New York to the Virgin Islands, including in front of thousands of participants with Anthony Robbins and the Robbins Research International Team.

At Northern Arizona University, while pursuing his Physical Therapy degree and B.Sc. degree in Health Science & Nutrition (emphasis in biomechanical kinesiology), John targeted his research efforts outside mainstream university textbooks and clinical teachings. Such study included personal application during his college football training camps, which is where John met Harland Svare (former NFL Head Coach & GM, as well as Linebacker for the N.Y. Giants). Coach Svare co-founded (with Pete Egoscue) the Egoscue Method therapy clinic in Del Mar, California. Both Harland and Pete worked closely with John as an athlete, and it was John’s experience there that expanded his therapeutic knowledge.

After working in numerous clinical environments, he spent years developing the Patented PTX Therapy delivery system ( realizing his vision to see many lives changed. The proprietary technology has been used in Fortune 500 companies, instantly delivering personalized therapy programs. All algorithms and protocols of this Virtual Therapy intelligence system originated from John’s study and experience as an athlete and clinician working with thousands of clients, ranging from those with severe pathologies to Olympic and world-class athletes (inc. NBA, PGA, and NFL - see Notables List below).

Says John, “I am very blessed to have learned from many others to gain my understanding of functional biomechanics and physical rehabilitation. I attribute all my successes to the grace of God, and firmly believe that perseverance through tough times and failures has helped teach, guide, and change me into the man, father, husband, therapist, educator and entrepreneur I am today. My desire is to have a positive influence on people I come into contact with, to inspire them, to share some hope. Life is full of opportunities to help others, so it is important to be a humble and faithful steward of what has been entrusted to me – people, time, money, talents, and testimony.”

John is very happily married to his beautiful bride Amanda, who together recently moved with their three amazingly awesome children, Mason, Addison, and Payton, from Southern California to the Hill Country in the heart of Texas.
