Satya Sardonicus DC, CACCP is a strategic healing consultant, international speaker, and founder of Resilience Artist where she specializes in “unsolvable” complex cases involving sensory processing, chronic stress, and unresolved trauma.
Dr. Satya brings a unique perspective of the healing process; her deeply personal experience with trauma and chronic illness inspired her to innovate a multidisciplinary framework to facilitate therapeutic change, NeuroFascial Integration™. NFI has been referred to as a “unified field theory for all healing modalities” to provide sustainable, transformative, trauma-informed care that is easier and more effective for both provider and patient.
A second-generation chiropractor in a family of holistic providers, Dr. Satya is actively informed by a passion for neuroscience, biotensegrity + fascia, dance therapy, holistic nutrition, and a vitalistic philosophy. She is the creator of Fascial Flow Method™, a body-based approach to resolve trauma and tension patterns and become more resilient to physical, mental, and emotional stressors.
Dr. Satya has authored multiple research publications in the scientific literature, including a groundbreaking study demonstrating the Dural Fascial Kinetic Chain (the first of its kind to describe this functional structure) and significant relationship between proprioception, dysautonomia, respiratory capacity, and quality of life measures. She has also co-authored research with the Brain Research Department at Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel following guest lecturing for department faculty.
Dr. Satya has served as adjunct professor and clinical supervisor for Palmer College of Chiropractic and the University of Western States.

The impact she has had on my life and career is huge. Her seminar is the absolute best I've done. Dr. Satya is a bridge between science and healing, and I use what she taught me every time I'm with a patient.

Dr Satya inspires me with her dedication to her clinical artistry, to teaching, and most importantly the care given freely to those around her. She reaches for what lies beyond our grasp as humans. The insights, the glimpses into truth, and the expressions of the gifts we have all been given are remarkable.
Dale Johnson, PhD
Life West Director of Research
Dr. Satya is a deeply sensitive individual, able to tune in to what is happening in her patient's body in a way I've rarely experienced. Her clinical competence is remarkable, and deeply informs her teaching style. She is so full of useful information that it practically seeps out of her pores, and her thoughtful intelligence permeates everything she passes on to her students. It's really easy to feel confident doing what she teaches because it's easy to trust that she has done the research.
