S.R.T. Neck Release can relieve many symptoms.

Do you or someone you know suffer from endless headaches, nagging neck and back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia?

Have you been told your leg lengths are uneven?

Can't get lasting relief?

Then  S.R.T. is for you!

Chronic Sub-Occipital Neck tension is one of the most common yet, undiagnosed impediments to the body's natural ability to restore and maintain itself in a balanced state of  health. Deep Sub-Occipital Release Technique (S.R.T.) is the most effective method of resolving this common ailment.

This NEW advanced method of neck release developed by Jeff St.Onge, H.H.P.  incorporates over 25 years of experience in developing this truly amazing procedure. It can relieve chronic tension allowing for smoother freedom of movement and pain relief. For many, these positive changes are life-changing and permanent!

S.R.T. goes directly to the cause of the problem, "dural stress caused by excessive tension of the Sub-Occipital and upper muscles of the neck and shoulders. This can cause torquing down the entire back, which can then cause problems almost anywhere in the body from an apparent uneven leg length to headaches.

Other areas that could be effected  may include neck, back and shoulder pain, hip, leg, knee, and  even foot problems can develop. It is a major cause of  head pain, mental confusion and sometimes will even cause facial and jaw pain.

Using a specially designed and custom built tool, the SRT Model R-2 (used exclusively by trained and certified S.R.T. practitioners), the practitioner will work to release the deep neck muscles that are causing these various problems. Also the fascia, dura and other deep tissues surrounding this area are softened and relaxed. Dural torquing is then eliminated and the body's natural memory of proper function is reactivated. Once this is achieved, the rest of the body and mind can then begin to return to their normal, balanced function.

S.R.T Goal

To reduce Dural Torquing in head, neck and back.


Due to excessive physical force and or emotional trauma, and often times during aggressive birthing procedures, the dura becomes torqued resulting in long term muscular tension, and compensation.
This in turn can result in long term physical and emotional discomfort.

The S.R.T. Procedure

Full-Body Treatment using neuro-muscular reflex technology via the SRT Model R-2 tool to release excess tension.
Starting with the Sub-Occipital muscle group and other muscles in the neck, head, back and legs to release and reset dural memory.
Usually done in two to 3 office visits.

Our Approach to Healing

Physical trauma and energy imbalance is one of the most common causes of ill health. Some of the behavioral traits like anxiety, greed, jealousy, grief, anger, fear and frustration are also responsible in disturbing the equilibrium of energy within the body. This disturbance illustrates itself in a number of different ways.

S.R.T. Neck Release is very effective in restoring the harmonious state of mind, body, and spirit, and can be further strengthened by other supportive modalities. We must always remember that the practitioner is but a tool through which the body's healing ability is awakened.

When this technique or any other procedure is received, it should be understood that it takes effect not only at the time it was accepted, but also thereafter in the days and weeks following. Healing is a continuing process, reaching the affected person day-by-day, bringing about progressive changes for the better as the corrective influence takes effect.

Spectacular results or instantaneous "cures" should not be expected, although dramatic changes do sometimes take place at the time of a procedure, more generally, improvement comes progressively, week-by-week, month-by-month, as the underlying causes of ill conditions are lessened and overcome.

These changes, for the better, involve not only the specific malady for which healing has been sought, but the total well-being of the person (i.e. spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical). Thus, it can be said that healing also has a preventative function, as a more harmonious state is attained the likelihood of ill health is lessened.

Our Goal

To unlock the blockages that are preventing true health from flourishing. To educate those who are seeking understanding and to understand those who are not. To encourage those who are willing to take responsibility for their own health and to help them discover new pathways on their journey to better health.
