SOT® Methods is Chiropractic Manipulation Reflex Technique (CMRT™). CMRT™ is a system of organ function analysis and treatment as it relates to the spine and the occipital tendon insertions. This method not only allows you to find the major vertebral subluxation but also the degree of involvement, (cerebrospinal-meningeal, vertebral visceral or structural-vertebral). CMRT™ teaches a method of adjusting the vertebrae subluxation along with soft tissue reflexes to nourish the organ. The occipital fibers are based on the ability of the proprioceptive system (Golgi Tendons) to respond to muscles influenced by spinal subluxations and visceral and meningeal disturbances. CMRT™ allows the SOT® Methods Chiropractor to take a whole person approach to health. SOT® Methods also employs trapezius fiber analysis with spinal palpation to define spinal subluxation and cervical indicators to define lumbar subluxation. Extremity techniques are taught in SOT® Methods as part of its core curriculum since they are part of the weight-bearing system and can influence cranial sacral respiration.
