SOT & TMJ (Jaw) techniques


We are especially interested in the “tone” of your body, which is reflected in the tightness of your spinal cord.

SOT stands for Sacro Occipital Technique, a chiropractic technique designed to help normalise the relationship between the pelvis and the head.

The Foundation

The integrity of the spine, and the function of the nervous system it protects, begins with the pelvis. This foundation is constantly subjected to the pull of gravity. When stability is lost, it produces effects throughout your body.

The Cranium

Proper control of every cell and tissue of your body is affected by bones of the skull and tension on your spinal cord. Think of your spinal cord as a string on a harp. Is it flexible and healthy? Or stretched and drawn tight?

Blocking the Spine

We use wedge-shaped devices known as “blocks” to help correct your spine and properly “tune” your nervous system. By knowing exactly where to position these blocks, we use the weight of your body to make corrections, naturally.

TMJ (Jaw)

Disorders of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles that move it can be responsible or contribute to an array of symptoms ranging from facial pain, tingling, clicking, headaches, tinnitus and dizziness.  Gentle cranial and specific TMJ techniques can in many cases help manage these conditions (we have testimonials for these cases available on request).

Safe and Comfortable

By using gravity and your own body to effect correction, new healthier patterns of spinal function can result. Along with safe, consistent results, SOT is known for emphasising patient comfort.
