Lying and relaxing on the SACRO WEDGY®
is the most important part of helping muscles return
to a proper balance. It is also important that the neck
is stabilized with a firm support. The SACRO WEDGY®
is placed under only the sacrum to isolate, cradle and
elevate this very important "wedged" shape
bone between the hips. Many refer to the sacrum as the
"keystone" of the body. This reference comes
from a term used in construction to describe the last
stone to go in place when building an arch. If the "keystone"
is out of place, the arch will collapse.
The beginning stages may, for some, be
awkward. Just finding the "sacrum" may be
daunting. It is below the waist, shaped like a triangle
with a curve at the very end sometimes called the "tailbone".
Lying on the SACRO WEDGY® is like lying on top of
another sacrum. There is a curve or "cradle"
in the SACRO WEDGY® similar to the curve of the
When first learning how to obtain proper
placement, we suggest you keep knees bent with feet
on the floor and with the hands move the SACRO WEDGY®
up towards the waist and down to the feet ½ inch
at a time until you feel the "cradle".
Your back will be slightly arched. Because
absolutely everyone is different, some will feel discomfort,
some will not. The only time there will not be a "fit"
is when a woman has a longer and narrower torso and
requires the male version of the SACRO WEDGY®. The
feeling will be of sitting on top of the hipbones as
opposed to going between.

The concept, when creating the SACRO WEDGY®,
was based on a widely used osteopathic technique of
placing the hand under the sacrum and elevating that
bone. The hips were then free to relax on either side
of the hand. Well, the SACRO WEDGY® does basically
the same thing. The sacrum is held in a neutral position
giving hips the freedom to drop, relax and release.
Gravity does the work and when combined with a firm
neck support creates what some therapists refer to as
a "natural" traction. This is when "relaxing"
or doing absolutely nothing is so important.
Below Left: Place index finger in the hollow
part of the narrow end of the Sacro Wedgy®. The
narrow knob should be placed below the coccyx (tailbone).
Below Right: Keep your knees bent. Position
the Sacro Wedgy® so that your coccyx (tailbone)
feels like it is in the dip or cradle. Your lower back
should feel slightly arched. After placing the Sacro
Wedgy® in the correct position straighten your legs
out and relax!
Above: This position is the
most commonly used and most relaxing to allow gravity
to do the most for your muscle balance. Keep in mind,
not everyone can do this especially in the beginning
stages of realignment. If you have specific conditions
like spinal stenosis you would be able to relax better
with a pillow under your knees.
Above Left: This position is used to help
relax muscles in the groin area. Place the bottom of
your feet together and let your knees drop off to the
side. Let gravity take over. Remember to relax!
Above Right: If the Psoas muscle is weaker
in one side (or longer) this isometric will help strengthen
the weak side. Make a brace with your hand against your
leg (as shown in picture). Pull back against your hand
with your leg for about 5 seconds. Make sure you exhale
while doing this due to exertion.
