The AtlasPROfilax method was developed by Professor René-Claudius Schümperli in Switzerland. It is a natural and a holistic method that carries no risks.
Basically it aims to release existing tensions of the short neck muscles by a special massage allowing your Atlas to return into its original position.
As the Atlas vertebra determines the position of the whole spine, by the correction the optimal balance can be reached. It offers the chance to complete physical, spiritual and mental development and the possibility to walk upright and being healthy.
After the AtlasPROfilax treatment the self-healing process can be effectively supported by manualtherapy and physiotherapy.
The first cervical vertebra, known as the “Atlas,” plays a fundamental role in the operation of your motion system. If the Atlas vertebra moves out from its correct anatomic position, it can produce a “domino effect" on your entire musculoskeletal, circulatory and nervous systems, creating imbalances and several kind of problems in various parts of your body. The negative effects may manifest throughout your entire body.
These malfunctions may turn into serious health problems of seemingly unknown origin that can adversely affect the quality of your life. The misalignment of the Atlas makes the spine to compensate for the incorrect position of the Atlas with a rotation down to the sacroiliac joint at the top of the pelvis. This rotation can create constant pressure on the spinal cord, the cerebral nerves and all the other nerve tracts radiating from the spine.
This constant pressure can cause dysfunctions of your organs due to their connection to the vertebrae. Atlas is the gate through which cerebral nerves, arteries and veins and the spinal cord emerge from the foramen magnum at the base of your skull. Thus, a misaligned Atlas can disturb the flow of neurons, blood or spinal fluid and restricts the flow between your head and the rest of your body. This interference can profoundly affect your psychological and emotional state.
Whiplash trauma, recurring migraine, headaches and other chronic complaints following accidents can often result from displacement of the Atlas vertebra. Correction of this displacement can alleviate these chronic conditions and offers a real, long lasting solution without being forced to take medicines and taking the risks of the side effects. This way several kind of health problems can be solved by abolishing the main reason of them.
