Clare Cullen has been in practice for 20 years since graduating with a Masters in Chiropractic from Surrey University.

As the current president of SOTO Europe, she is passionate about teaching Sacrooccipital Technique (SOT) as she believes it offers chiropractors a unique perspective on the neuromusculoskeletal system.

As a certified SOT craniopath, she sees how all body systems are complexly interconnected and how the integrity of the musculoskeletal system supports the nervous system and homeostasis.

Cranial, spinal, pelvic and extremity distortion patterns will negatively affect the delicate balance of this neuromusculoskeletal system and ultimately cerebrospinal fluid dynamics.

In this introduction to SOT, she will introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of SOT and hopes to stir your interest in further study of this indicator-based adjusting technique. 

With SOT you will deepen your understanding of the interconnected nature of the human body and learn a fantastic technique that gives you greater certainty about when and where to adjust.
