Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) is a comprehensive and
innovative technique of Chiropractic founded in 1925 by Dr M B De Jarnette and
is constantly being developed today.
It is named as such due to the relationship between the sacrum
(base of the spine) and the occiput (base of the skull).
The sacrum and cranium work in a reciprocal way to assist in the
pumping of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) throughout the brain, spinal cord and the
nervous system. The minute rhythmical motion that circulates the CSF is
essential to optimal health – CSF effectively acts as the circulatory system of
the brain and spinal cord and is essential for the rejuvenation of nerve
The goal of SOT is to facilitate the continuous motion that is required for the central nervous system to function efficiently. This process includes biomechanical levers called SOT Blocks, which are used to address three categories of distortion patterns.
