Sacro-Occipital Technique

Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) is a system of adjusting patterns that use indicators, the most significant pattern being the relationship between the sacrum and occiput. Each adjustment has a sign or signal that is used to know when and where to adjust. For example, muscle tension at the knee may indicate the pelvis needs correction, while connective tissue fibers at the base of the skull (called occipital fibers) indicate different vertebra in the back or spine may be in need of an adjustment. This also tells us on the next visit if the correction has been completely or marginally effective. From these indicators, we design a different adjustment set per visit, listening to the body each time.
