As a specialized and gentle method, Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) focuses on the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull)—and their ability to foster the movement of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to the brain and throughout the nervous system.
SOT also recognizes the essential role of normal cranial function in health and disease and therefore addresses cranial and sutural issues within the adjustment. SOT consists of a three-category system that is employed to evaluate, diagnose and address dysfunction within the body.
Our nervous system can only function at its peak when body structures are balanced and our pelvis is stable. This is what SOT aims to achieve.
