How to use the SPYNAMICS Sacro Aligner
Mode of Operation
The Spynamics Sacro Aligner is used while resting onto it lying on the floor (use yoga mat etc.) with the tool placed correctly under the sacrum and lower lumbar spine (see instructions page).
Stay for 3 - 10 minutes (maybe less in the beginning) and start the procedure with simple movements (see instructions) that help to re-align the joints determined by the unique shape of the Spynamics Sacro Aligner. The Aligner does not manipulate the structures but guides them during the movements.
This self-regulation of the body into his natural order can happen very fast or gradually over time depending on the individual conditions of the User.
The part fixation of the sacrum in relation to the Ilium can lead to a fast resolving of a joint-blockage with a double effect:
A mobilization of a hypo mobile (blocked) ISJ and a stabilization of a hyper mobile (loose) ISJ.
The Spynamics Spine Aligner can also be used in the Sacrum area. We recommend this for example if the counter-pressure at the coccyx while using the Sacro Aligner is too uncomfortable. The humps of the Spine Aligner should be downwards at the coccyx (see picture) (Picture is only for demonstration of the position. During exercise the tool is below the sacrum in lying, face up, position.)
The position of the body on the Spynamics Sacro Aligner allows the deep muscles and the ligaments of the pelvic girdle to relax due to the gentle pressure forces of the own body weight (gravity) together with simple movements and therefore regulates the natural nerve flow of the sciatic nerve and the associated blockages of the functional units of joints–muscles–ligaments–nerves that improves the disturbed nerve information exchange between the control organ brain and the corresponding body areas.
Based on the knowledge of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) important acupressure (meridian) points are treated alongside e.g. B 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, 33, 34.
In combination with recommended therapies like Physical Therapy (PT), Osteopathy, Massage etc. (recommended is also the Dorn Method since the development of the Spynamics Sacro Aligner is partly based on its principles), and Self-Help Exercises the Spynamics Sacro Aligner can often fast lead to an improvement of pain issues and many other problems that are connected to the energetical blockages of the structural system.
The Spynamics Sacro Aligner has also other possible uses:
The Spynamics Sacro Aligner may further be used while sitting to assist a proper and upright sitting posture and help to re-structure the pelvic girdle. It can be used on almost any chair (e.g. dining chair, office chair, car) or as sitting aid during a meditation on the floor (as alternative to the often difficult Lotus sitting position (e.g.Yoga or Meditation)).
In sitting position the pubic bone area is gently resting against the Head part of the Spynamics Sacro Aligner and the Humps of the tool are supporting the sacrum and the connected ligaments. This prevents the rotation of the pelvis, promotes an upright sitting position with muscular training and contributes to a decrease in pain.
» Note: The SpynamicsSacroAligner should not be used as permanent sitting aid but rather as therapeutic sitting tool for 10 to 20 minutes (best several time daily) to avoid body reactions (healing reactions)
The Spynamics Sacro Aligner and especially the Spynamics Spine Aligner can also be used to treat headaches (migraines) and tension in the head/neck area. In these cases the Spynamics Sacro Aligner or the Spynamics Spine Aligner is placed under the head (occiput) (see instruction brochure) and provides suboccipital inhibition which produces a relaxation in the deep suboccipital muscles that are often the culprits in many cases of headaches / migraine. The patient also treats important acupressure points (TCM) like Meridian points B 9 and B 10.
At a slightly higher point on the back of the head (behind the middle of the ears) the Spynamics Sacro Aligner or the Spynamics Spine Aligner achieves a so called Still Point which has according to Cranio Sacral Therapy important therapeutic effects. A Still Point is indicated when the cerebrospinal fluid gently and naturally comes to a rest in what can best be described as an extended pause. The delicate interruption of fluid flow causes a momentary buildup of fluid in the system. When the tissues are subsequently released and the fluid begins to flow again, it gently flushes the system, causing the membranes to stretch a bit and release tissue restrictions or adhesions. (By John Upledger, DO, OMM)

The Spynamics Sacro Aligner and especially the Spynamics Spine Aligner can further be used to gently stretch and re-align the upper lumbar and the thoracic spine. The acupressure effect (like a strong Shiatsu massage) from the body's own weight works along the Bladder meridian with a specific stretching and mobilization of the Facet joints via the Transverse processes of the spine. » Arm movements like boxing upwards (coming from the shoulder not the elbow!) increase the effect.
This mechanism can have very positive effects onto the nervous system of the indicated areas that may positively influence problems on the organ level.
The Spynamics Sacro Aligner and especially the Spynamics Spine Aligner promotes a relaxation of the complete deep muscular system of the spine especially M.multifidus and Mm.rotatores.
The regular use of the Spynamics Sacro & Spine Aligner can achieve a long term relaxation along the whole spinal column.
