Ida Rolf and Coccyx Pain – “The Seat of the Soul”


Fig. 1 Ida Rolf called the coccyx the “seat of the soul” and I’ve come to appreciate the importance of this oft-overlooked structure. When clients (especially women) come in complaining of long-term migraine headaches, severe menstrual cramping, or pelvic pain during sitting, I always evaluate for coccyx misalignment.

The Coccyx…seat of the soul article was just mailed to subscribers of my e-technique newsletter. Hopefully, this short commentary and the accompanying video will offer helpful insights into understanding, testing and correcting those with a hooked coccyx. For more detail on treating complex pelvic pain conditions, please check out my Lower Body Home Study CE course.
