Using the Sacro Wedgy® tool, the client's body is guided through a series of stretches and trigger point releases which gently eases the muscles of the hip and low back into relaxation and elongation. Each 30 minute, fully clothed treatment includes 20 minutes of passive stretches and 10 minutes of relaxation. Please dress for comfort, yoga attire is appropriate.
It has helped lower back pain, hip pain, "pain in the butt", common to runners, golfers, tennis players and all athletics, people with fibromyalgia, piriformis syndrome, scoliosis, knee pain, back pain, sciatica and more.
The Sacro Wedgy® is a device that isolates and elevates the sacrum (your tail-bone) and uses gravity help relax, align and re-balance from the hips out. We learn that we should strengthen our core. But many people don't understand that the hips are the bowl that holds the core in place. Stabilize that bowl, and the strength and balance will follow. It does this through lengthening the Piriformis, Psoas and Sartorious hip muscles.
There is a muscle called the piriformis that originates with the wide end of the triangular shaped muscle attached to the front of the sacrum and the narrow end attached to the hip. As gravity takes over and the hips relax, the piriformis has a chance to stretch a little. The sciatic nerve is involved with this muscle and affects many with sciatica. This muscle is also thought to be the beginning of a series of misalignments and dysfunctions.
