Understanding the Power of S.O.T. Chiropractic
In 1975 Jonathan attended his first Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) seminar in England. This exposure to SOT as a “method of chiropractic” was an enlightening experience and provoked him to investigate further the work of DeJarnette, the founder and developer of SOT. As a result of political upheaval in Zimbabwe Jonathan and his family emigrated to England in 1984, and established the Oxford Chiropractic Clinic (OCC), in Headington, Oxford.
From Oxford Chiropractic Clinic, Jonathan started teaching (SOT) and in 1986 established ‘SOTO Europe’ a post-graduate teaching organisation for chiropractors delivering training throughout the UK and Europe. SOT helped form the foundation of CFD development.
