Self-Help Tools

We sell many of these products in our office, so please stop by if you're looking for a local provider. (We don't carry the Yamuna body rolling balls or theracanes.)

Still point inducer - This prop is used to promote a still point - a cessation of the craniosacral pulse that resets the nervous system. I find the experience to be similar to the very deep state reached in meditation. Still points are great for people with headaches, insomnia, and anxiety, but everyone can benefit from the calming of the nervous system this still point inducer provides.

Sacrowedgy - The sacrowedgy is used to gently realign the sacrum, which often contributes to low back, hip, and sciatic pain. This site also sells a wonderful neck roll, which you lie upon to gently open and lengthen the neck. The sacrowedgy is nice to use in conjuction with either a still point inducer or the neck pillow.

Sacroiliac Belt - This belt is for people who experiences chronic sacroiliac joint dysfunction. It supports, stabilizes, and relieves strain on the joint. Wearing this belt throughout the day allows the ligaments and muscles to recuperate and repair themselves. After several months of usage, the joints should be better aligned and the muscles and ligaments better able to support them.

Yamuna body rolling balls - Use these firm balls to release your own fascia, reducing pain and improving function.

Ma roller - A tool to stretch and adjust your own spine.

Theracane - The Theracane is used to "apply pain-relieving deep compression directly to hard, knotted "trigger points" anywhere they occur - breaking up tension even in the hardest-to-reach muscles between your shoulder blades! If you have limited strength or mobility, Thera Cane's patented design gives you all the reach and leverage you need!"

Neck Support Pillows - A pillow that provides support for your cervical spine as you sleep. Many companies make neck support pillows; this link is just to one example of such a pillow.

Skin Brush - Use this to brush your whole body, amplifying the flow of your lymph fluid and boosting your immune function. It also stimulates and clears your skin, your largest eliminative organ.
