Dr. Bloink is a board certified Craniopath and advanced instructor of S.O.T. (Sacro Occipital Technic)
S.O.T. is a highly analytical chiropractic technique which was developed by Dr. M.B. DeJarnette. It was one of the earliest techniques (dating back to 1925) and remains one of the most progressive, contemporary, and thoroughly researched techniques available to chiropractors today. In S.O.T., the doctor understands three main subluxation patterns alter normal body function.
Each subluxation pattern is called a category. Each category has its own analysis and adjusting procedures. Category I addresses subluxation patterns which involves the central nervous system directly. Category II comprises a primary subluxation of the posterior Sacroiliac joint, and the musculoskeletal compensations which result from pelvic instability. Category III consists of a primary lumbar instability or vertebral subluxation, and its resulting complications.
S.O.T. practitioners utilize full spine adjusting techniques as well as pelvic wedges to balance the pelvis and facilitate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the central nervous system. This allows the body to efficiently adapt to both environmental and gravitational stress.
In addition, S.O.T. doctors address soft tissue, extremities, viscera, and the cranium in their analyses and correction of the various subluxation patterns. When considering all those areas mentioned, S.O.T. becomes one of the most unique and comprehensive approaches to chiropractic today.
Craniopathy is a specialized Chiropractic field dealing with the micro motion and distortions of the skull. This technique improves the flow of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (C.S.F.) which is dependent on a stable, balanced cranium, spine and pelvis. Correcting cranial distortions reducing cranial stress that improving C.S.F. flow restoring normal functioning to the brain and nervous system.
Cranial adjusting has been proven to help the following conditions: migraines, headaches, vision problems, TMJ dysfunction, coordination, speech problems, hearing, vertigo, tinnitis, sinus problems, emotional disturbance, hormone imbalances, sleep disturbance, insomnia, loss of memory, loss of energy and many others.

This review is long overdue.
I have been a patient Of Dr Bloink for over 12 years. When I first met him I literally had to shuffle as I couldn't extend my foot more than 6 inches. I had visited many other doctors and chiropractors and physical therapists over the years and they had all told me I would need back surgery. Thankfully I followed Dr Bloink's advice and instructions on how to strengthen my back and heal. He is an intuitive and extremely knowledgeable craniopath and chiropractor and understands more about anatomy and physiology than anyone I have every met. I can't thank him enough!
The office staff are all wonderful, always professional, helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
“Dr. Thomas Bloink is without a doubt the best all around doctor we have ever been to. He is a miracle worker. My wife can not function and after a few minutes with Dr. Bloink she is much, much better. His knowledge and skill has been shared with universities and with others globally. I highly recommend Dr. Bloink for a myriad of physical issues that others have not been able to provide any relief. ”
“At the time I was 23 years old suffering from more-or-less intractable pain in my shoulder that had been lasting more than a year. I took x-rays and saw a few MDs, although I never could find out why I was in so much pain and was simply told to give it time. Eventually I saw Dr. Bloink, and to make a long and painful story short, he fixed me in the span of only about a month of treatment - with noticeable results after only one session.
I am writing a year later now, and I am so glad that I saw Dr. Bloink when I did. I imagine if I waited any longer it would have had great consequences on my well-being. Unfortunately at the time I was a broke college kid, so I could not continue to see him - if Dr. Bloink or Ashley is reading this, please know that I am so grateful for you guys and that I will be back if I ever get hurt again.
I haven't seen many chiropractors in my lifetime, but I do know that Dr. Bloink is one of the smartest people that I have ever met and is no joke whatsoever.”
“I've been a patient of Dr. Bloink's for over 20 years. I suffered from a chronic condition that affected every aspect of my life. But his care and unparalleled ability to heal has saved and preserved my physical, emotional and biological wellbeing. And the icing on the cake is the professional, competent, compassionate staff he has hired to run his practice and take great care of countless loyal patients like me. Thank you Dr. Bloink - you and your unparalleled staff make a real difference in the lives of so many. Keep doing what you're doing!”
“Wow - Dr. Bloink is phenomenal! He is a world-class chiropractor who I have known for many years. I refer difficult cranial patients to him, and am constantly amazed at how he is able to help these tough cases that no one else seems to be able to touch. Yesterday another patient contacted me to let me know that Dr. Bloink had (through a single precision cranial adjustment) manged to balance their eyesight such that their impaired depth perception was immediately improved and also to where they did not need their reading glasses to see small print. He has also helped my patients with sleep apnea, certain types of seizures, chronic headaches, etc. all through his specialized craniopathy. I'm so grateful to have him as a local resource, and would not hesitate to see him and send others. He is the ultimate SMART with HEART. :)”
“Dr. B has been my miracle worker and that elusive "needle in the haystack" find.
General medicine is limited and only follows "standard protocol" which often does not work. Several of my misdiagnosed ailments were addressed and healed by his skilled hands and knowledge. I am forever grateful that he shares his gifts with his patients.”
