SOT is the acronym referring to the Sacro Occipital Technique. It is named because of the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull). SOT is a comprehensive, gentle and innovative technique of Chiropractic.
One of the functions of the sacrum is to pump Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) from the base of the spine back up the spinal canal to the brain and throughout the nervous system. CSF acts as the circulatory system of the brain and spinal cord.
The pelvis forms the foundational support of the human skeleton. It supports the upper body right up to the skull, and enables us to transfer our weight to our legs. The spine holds our body upright, supports all of our organs and provides anchor points for our muscles. It also protects our nervous system. The nervous system controls our body, and can only function normally when our structures are balanced and our pelvis is stable.
There is a natural flow of energy, lymphatics, and cebrospinal fluid back and forth in the body as we breathe. SOT focuses on restoring the natural rhythm between the skull and sacrum (pelvis).
