The SACRUS device is designed to restore the normal function of the sacrum, atlas, and diaphragm. Due to birth trauma, sedentary life falls in childhood, sports activity, etc., most people have deviated and spasmed sacrum and atlas (first cervical). At the same time, the diaphragm is affected (tensioned) due to daily stress. The sacrum, the base of the skull, and the diaphragm are the most critical biomechanical centers; any alteration in these points causes chronic fatigue of the spine and essential internal organs. As a result, serious diseases develop over time and also affect the immune system. Through a gentle osteopathic shock, SACRUS restores the function of these centers.
It is of great help for people with back problems and high-performance athletes, office workers, and yogis, among others.
Self-gravitation, the method on which SACRUS is based, is safe, non-invasive, and physiologically natural for the spine since it uses the body’s own weight. Additionally, it offers the benefits of magnet therapy, acupressure, passive yoga, and deep massage. This type of method has been used since ancient times in oriental medicine. SACRUS can be used at home as well as by specialists.
SACRUS can be applied from ten years of age and with a height greater than 140 centimeters. It is essential to have a diagnosis supported by a CT scan or an MRI; X-rays are not always enough
Conditional contraindications are when the device cannot be applied in a specific area, but it can be applied in other areas of the column.
(1): Additionally, make the therapeutic exercises indicated for your diagnosis
(2) In case of having some unstable vertebrae, it is important to use supports in the damaged areas that are not fully supported on the surface.
(3): The use of Cordus is important to increase the efficacy
(4):For certain diagnoses, the specific indication for therapy is not to place SACRUS in the affected area, but to apply it to nearby areas and others. By improving these areas, it is possible to give benefits on the damaged area because the spine is an interconnected system.
(5):When feeling relief, do not increase physical loads for at least 2 months
The session can be done on the bed, in a high-back chair, or on the floor. Choose the way that fits you best. In all the options you will get good results.
Before starting the therapy, you can prepare the supports, they will help you reduce the pressure that SACRUS provides: pillows or towels and a blanket to avoid the cold; set an alarm so you don’t fall asleep; if you will make therapy on the floor, use a non-slip mat; be sure to avoid cold drafts in the room; it is advisable to warm up your back before the session by spending a few minutes sitting in the chair, lying in bed or using a warm compress.
Don’t rush, take your time to learn how to properly make your therapies.
IMPORTANT: If the damaged area shows inflammation, deflate it before using the device.
The use of SACRUS should be relaxed and pleasant. Avoid talking, using a cell phone or computer, watching television or other activities.
During the use of SACRUS, deep relaxation and breathing with the diaphragm is necessary (the muscle “work” or movement is focused on the lower lungs).
Concentrate your attention on the breath and the focus of tension, mentally relax this point.
Inhale calmly with the lower part of the lungs, hold for a few seconds (smile within yourself and give thanks), while exhaling, mentally direct this positive feeling to the point where SACRUS is.
It is not about filling the lungs like a balloon (this causes stress), or “holding your breath”, it is not about competing with ourselves. Proper breathing brings pleasure.
In 1 or 2 minutes, you will notice how the pressure decreases and disappears, as the stressed muscle resists the effect of the device during the first minutes, giving way to the relaxation phase.
IMPORTANT! If any position with SACRUS causes discomfort, do not try to hold it and avoid doing this position for a while and continue with the other positions. After a while, you can try again with the position that caused you discomfort.
In some diagnoses it is recommended not to place SACRUS directly in the damaged area, in these cases the method of use is to place the device in other points of the spine that do not have contraindications, avoiding that area. Since the spine is a connected system, any improvement in any part of the structure will benefit other areas.
If you have any questions write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is essential to obtain a diagnosis with a specialist of the spine. Do not apply SACRUS in contraindicated areas
ATTENTION! If the internal tension of the segment selected to correct is maintained for a long time despite the influence of the device, it means that the dysfunction of this zone is long and you should pay more attention to it by increasing the segment correction time up to 5 minutes, increasing the number procedures and adding a mandatory system of special exercises (ask a specialist).
To make the correction procedure as comfortable as possible, put a rolled pillow or cushion under different parts of the body (back, neck area). Perform all movements on the device in a slow and smooth way, without shakes, in the same way that sloths move.
If you have problems in the lower back you can use supports, for example a folded towel.
Recommendation: If you have a weak back, start your therapies in your bed or chair and gradually increase the intensity of the exercises After a few sessions, apply the therapies on a hard surface.
If during the session any strong discomfort appears at a point of application of SACRUS, move it a little up or down.
To soften the contact place a folded towel over SACRUS (if necessary)
To increase pressure, place a towel or notebook under the SACRUS (does not apply to the sacrum area).
In order to soften the contact with the device, proceed to place a folded towel on top of the SACRUS. (Only if necessary).
To increase pressure place a towel or notebook under SACRUS
Using SACRUS in a moderate way means regulating the pressure by using supports or by applying it on a bed, so you do not feel discomfort. You should feel tolerable pressure, but never pain.
If you feel severe pain, it means that the muscle is severely spasmed, and the joint is severely inflamed. The pain when using “Sacrus” is very rare! However, in case of severe pain in the sacrum area, place a rolled cushion or folded towel under the waist, which will make the sacrum correction procedure as smooth as possible. If the pain is strong and persists, you will need to diagnose the causes of such a pronounced inflammation of the area, you will probably have to take a course of anti-inflammatory therapy first.
Act in the same way in case of severe pain when correcting the diaphragm area.
If during a session you find it difficult to get up from the device (sometimes it can happen in the first sessions of correction of the thoracic region), you can lie on the side slightly and in this position move and remove the device.
It may happen that after the first 2 or 3 sessions you feel a small pain in the spinal area (device setup areas), mild nausea, or pangs (a slight burning sensation) in the back. Usually this is related to the activation of blood circulation in the tissues of the spine, with the recovery of mobility of the vertebrae joints, and with the activation of the vegetative regulation of the internal organs.
Those with low blood pressure may feel “light-headed” slightly dizzy because after treatment their blood pressure drops slightly.
Applying SACRUS therapy at night improves the quality of sleep!
It is recommended not to do any physical activity for 2 hours after the SACRUS spinal correction session.

Do not expose yourself to high temperatures.
Regardless of the location of your ailment in the spine, we recommend that you apply all the basic points indicated here (except contraindicated areas).
Begin working from the sacrum area, then relax the cervical area and finish with the diaphragm area. If you like, you can complement the session with other additional points.
It is important that the spine is positioned correctly between the SACRUS tips (centered).
Note: It is NOT necessary to put SACRUS on all points at the same time.
Be sure to properly align your body.
Avoid incorrect positioning
Do not use SACRUS without first reading the PREVIOUS PAGES in this manual.
We identify points A and B (side X), then we identify the last bone of the spine (the point is almost in the middle of the buttocks). Once the bone is located, press gently to remember where the point is. (f1) Points C and D are located at the L5 lumbar level.
Once the correct position of SACRUS is identified, put it aside and lie on your back with your legs bent, then gently lift your hips and place SACRUS at the point previously located (f 1.1), lower little by little until reaching the surface, stretch your legs and relax. In case of discomfort in the coccyx area, you can move SACRUS slightly down from the position where you placed it. Or put a folded towel over the device.
NOTE: You should feel moderate pressure without discomfort.
NOTE: If you have a problem* in the lumbar area, you should ALWAYS place a support (rolled towel) under this area (f 1.1) (f 1.2).
1. Basic: With legs stretched 3 or 4 min (f 2).
2. Basic: With legs bent 3 or 4 min (f 3).
3. Basic: With legs like a frog 2 to 3 min. (f 4) If in this position you feel too much discomfort at the level of the pelvis, place some support under the legs (f 5).
If any posture with SACRUS causes discomfort, avoid doing it for a while and continue with the other postures.
4. Additional: Apply after 5 sessions, perform with one leg bent and the other stretched for 2 min. Then repeat it with the other leg (f 6)
5. Additional: Apply after 5 sessions. Take your leg with the opposite hand, try to stretch the leg without releasing it with 20-30% effort for 6-8 s, release and stretch again. Relax. Repeat the exercise with the other leg. Two repetitions per leg (f 7).
6. Final exercise without SACRUS: We finish the treatment in the sacrum area with exercises to stabilize and mobilize the muscles. Get into the starting position (lying on the surface), bend your legs, hold and pull your knees towards your chest while pushing your hands with your knees, use 20 or 30% effort, hold 10 s. Hold your breath! (f 8).
7. In case of suffering from sciatic pain or discomfort in the hips and legs, we recommend you to perform the following exercise: Lying down with your legs straight, bend one knee, inhale and when exhaling with an effort of 20-30%, stick your knee to the chest, fix the knee at that point and continue inhaling and exhaling, each time you exhale try to bring the knee closer to the chest, do this for 2 min for each leg. Keep your head close to the surface and the other leg straight (f 9).
Basic: locate SACRUS points C and D, the X side of the device should point to the top of your head. Points C and D should be on the first cervical just below the skull (f 10).
Lie on your back, raise your head and place the device on the floor with points C and D on the first cervical just below the skull (f 10.1). Points A and B do not touch the skull. Then stretch the nape of the neck up with the chin towards the chest and keeping this position lower the head until it rests on the surface. If you do everything correctly, you will feel a slight stretch in the cervical area (f 10.2).
2. Additional: In the same position, move SACRUS a little lower until you begin to feel points A, B with your head, this is the “bregma” area (trigger point of the skull where the frontal bone and the parietal bone join). Adjust the device in the position to feel moderate pressure, without feeling more discomfort. Hold this position for 3 min.
If you feel too much pressure, you can place a towel over the device.
Muscle tone must be reactivated in this area.
Remove SACRUS, bend your knees and put your hands clasped behind your head, inhale and exhale, bring your chin to your chest with 20/30% effort; stay in this position for 8 to 10 seconds Hold your breath! When finished, slowly return to the starting position. Repeat the same with the legs straight (f 11).
To place SACRUS properly at this point it is necessary to first locate the pit of the stomach, then place SACRUS below the point located (f 12), lower little by little, supporting yourself with your elbows until you feel pressure on the pit of the stomach. with points A and B (f 12.1).
If you have too much stiffness in your stomach, don’t lower yourself completely, stay in position with whatever pressure you take. Stay in this position until you no longer feel discomfort, then you can lower a little more to increase the pressure (f 12.2), this should be done until you fully support your weight.
It is not necessary to achieve it in the first session. Relax in a moderate and pleasant way. Breathe easily.
Hold this position for 3 to 4 min. You can cough lightly to help relax your diaphragm.
Muscle tone should be reactivated in this area and more stretching for the diaphragm.
First inhale and stretch the diaphragm area, lift your head and waist up, slightly arching your back, you should feel a stretch in the diaphragm area (f 13).
As you inhale, hold your breath and position for 3-4 seconds. Avoid straining your neck.
Exhale, lower your head, and make your spine curved toward the ceiling.
As you exhale hold the position for 3 or 4 s (f 14).
Repeat these exercises 3 or 4 times.
When you finish using SACRUS, for greater therapeutic effect it is recommended to avoid standing, so as not to give vertical load to the spine, in case you have to move to another bedroom, lean on nearby walls or furniture. You can also rest in an armchair or bed. Avoid being physically active for the next two hours.
The narrow part of SACRUS should be below the ligaments of the patella (kneecap), and its wide part, below the shinbone (f 15). You can control the pressure by leaning on the floor with one hand (f 15.1).
If you experience problems within the dorsal area of your back (scoliosis), place the device above the shoulder blades so that points “C” and “D” are aligned just above them. Side “X” should face upward and side “Y” downward.
Place SACRUS on a flat surface and while maintaining stable with the aid of your elbows gradually lower yourself downward onto the device until finding the correct position. Remember that SACRUS should be centered on your spine.
In case of suffering from scoliosis, align SACRUS to the axis of the spine. (F X)
Points “C” and “D “must be situated above the shoulder blades, 4 to 5 cm (1.6 to 2 inches) below vertebra C7 (vertebra that bulges out at height of the shoulders).
Attention: Points “A” and “B” should not making contact with any part of your back; they should simply be left hanging without touching the cervical zone. Attention: Points “A” and “B” should not making contact with any part of your back; they should simply
be left hanging without touching the cervical zone. It is recommended to place a support of approximately 3 to 4 cm (1.2 to 1.6 inches) high (towel, pillow, or book) beneath your head. To give more pressure you can stretch your arms behind the head or place
In order to soften de contact, place a folded towel on top of the SACRUS. (Only if necessary).
To position SACRUS under the shoulder blades, flex your legs, lift your hips, and with your hands place SACRUS with the “Y” side under your shoulder blades (f 17) (approx. In the projection of the pit of the stomach), lower your hip slowly. (f 17.1)
To soften the contact, place a folded towel over SACRUS.
Remove SACRUS after treating the thoracic zone. In order to reactivate the muscle tone within this area, stretch your legs out and expand your arms behind the head. During 10-15 s, apply a 20-30% effort force while holding and stretching your whole body outwards. Hold your breath! (F 18).
You can also apply the device below the hips. (Prevention of osteoarthritis / arthritis) (F 19)
SACRUS is aligned with the pelvis so that that narrow part of the device is facing forward and its wide part faces backwards. (F 19)
The wide part of SACRUS should be under the heel, and its narrow part should be below the metatarsal.
You can place SACRUS below the shoulder blades.
Place SACRUS on a chair. You should sit on the SACRUS as if it were a saddle, while the X side of the device should be located in the back of the scrotum (f 20). If the seat of the chair is padded, so that SACRUS does not sink, it is recommended to put a book under the device(f 21).
When sitting on the device, it is recommended to perform Kegel exercises.
The therapy time is 3 to 5 minutes.
If you feel any discomfort, stop using the device. Consult your specialist.
Additionally, the device can be applied under the hip (prevention of osteoarthritis / arthritis) (f 18).
SACRUS is positioned at the projection level of the pelvis so that its narrow part is directed forward and its wide part towards the rear (f 19).
You may feel a little discomfort in some part of your spine, dizziness or itching (slight burning) in your back. This is associated with the activation of blood circulation in the endocrine tissue, recovery of joint mobility and the activation of the energy of the spinal cord meridians.
People with low blood pressure may feel slightly dizzy because SACRUS lowers blood pressure a little.
During or after the session you may experience strange sensations such as heat, cold, vibration or omething similar in your body. Don’t panic, your nerve chains are being reactivated, in one or two sessions and it will disappear. It is recommended to use SACRUS for 2 or 3 sessions more gently.
If you have the 2 devices, SACRUS and CORDUS, it is recommended to first perform the usual SACRUS therapy and then continue with the CORDUS session. You can also make a SACRUS session one day and another with CORDUS the next day.
Not having pain in your back does not mean that you are free of problems. The danger of bad processes on the back is that they pass silently. According to medical statistics, 70% of people who have problems with hernias, wasting, spasms, etc. in the back they do not experience pain and can live like this for years and not realize it, until the discomfort arises in an advanced stage, being necessary, in some cases, surgery.
Although most people do not realize it, due to birth trauma, sedentary life, falls in childhood, sports activity, etc., they have the sacrum and the atlas (first cervical) deviated and spasmed, while the diaphragm is affected (tense) from daily stress. As a result, serious diseases develop over time and the immune system is also affected. Through a gentle osteopathic discharge, SACRUS restores the function of these centers. It also improves your vitality, daily energy and sports performance.
Ex: We all are used to brush our teeth daily, but we do not have the same habit of taking care of the spine, since this is the most important system in the body. SACRUS is that “brush” your spine needs. At the beginning it is recommended to carry out 1-2 courses to treat the spasms accumulated silently in your back, later use the device once or twice a week. In addition, SACRUS can be your best anti-stress ally.
If when using the device you experience discomfort in any area of the spine or other part of the body, it means that SACRUS has detected the origin of a problem. It is recommended to make a diagnosis with a specialist.
SACRUS is an effective complement in the treatment of diseases of the internal organs.
Each vertebra in the spine is connected to a specific internal organ. The signal from the brain passes to a certain vertebra and then reaches the indicated organ and vice versa.
The incorrect position of the Sacrum and Atlas or the tension in the diaphragm area could cause serious diseases in the internal organs. The basic application of SACRUS helps to recover motor development and connection of the spine, restores the functioning of nerve chains, improves the immune level and energy flow. It can be a good complement to any treatment.
If SACRUS does not help you to solve your condition quickly, it may be because more sessions are necessary for your diagnosis. For other diagnoses such as degenerative ones, the device does not cure the condition, but it can help stop the progression of the disease, which is also a good result. In these cases, we recommend that you do not suspend the use of the device, but rather complement it with other types of therapies. Ask your doctor.
For more effective treatment, supplement with CORDUS. What is CORDUS?
CORDUS is another product made by doctors, which uses the same method of SELFGRAVITATION used to reach the deepest muscles.
It is an effective support to treat herniated discs, 1st and 2nd degree of scoliosis, sciatic nerve pain, among others.
The innovation of CORDUS is that due to its special design it not only reaches the deepest intervertebral muscles, where neither massage therapists or chiropractors reach, but it also fits itself between the vertebrae, separating them slightly and increasing the space between each of them, which helps to restore the functioning of the nerves, the adequate blood circulation and nutrition of the intervertebral discs. As a result, the intervertebral discs regenerate. This effect is very difficult to achieve with traditional methods such as chiropractic, massage or other therapies.
