Chiropractic Techniques

Sarah uses a combination of activator, diversified, Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), drop piece, Applied Kinesiology and NET to make to ensure that each person’s care is ideally suited to them and their needs.
SOT (Sacro occiputal technique) is a technique focuses on restoring the flow of fluid around the brain and spinal cord. It involves placing wedges underneath the pelvis to remove the ‘twist’ or imbalance that may be causing a difference in your leg length. This is combined with gentle corrections to the skull called cranial work.
  All techniques are gentle enough to be used on the whole family from babies to the elderly.
Activator is a tool that delivers a small, focused force to an area. It can be used to adjust joints and also to release trigger points or ‘knots’ in muscles.
Drop piece uses the assistance of the chiropractic table. Once cranked up the piece drops a small distance. This increases the speed of the adjustment and can be used on any area of the spine.
Applied Kinesiology is a muscle based technique which uses muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. There are points all over the body and skull which are used to rebalance the body.

NET(Neuro Emotional Technique) is a mind-body stress-reduction technique that uses a method of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the effects of unresolved stress on our bodies. NET is a tool that helps improve the health of mind and body.

Manual adjustments involve a gentle force that is delivered by hand. It may produce a sound. This sound is simply gas being released from the joint, just like when you crack your knuckles.  It may sound loud, especially when given to the top of the spine as the sound is closest to the ears.
