I feel the sacro Wedgy is a powerful self treatment tool, as well as an adjunct tool during session. When used during my MFR session, it acts as a corrective anchor while I am tractioning at the neck. Chiro wedges are another option for the same, but each has their own magic. For those clients with chronic sacroiliac issues, the wedgy works well at home, provided they have been given proper instruction. I have found that only 1 in 10 clients can figure out how to properly place the thing based solely on the included instructions. Once in place, it works to open the SI's, as well as the lunbosacral junction. If you are recommending it to your clients, tell them to firget the hard sell of the cervical roll that the Sacro Wedgy folks put on them...a towel roll works just fine. Or, better yet, have them buy a cervical pivot to work the suboccipital region while they are using the wedgy. Two birds with one stone.
