R.C. Schümperli developed a unique method to safely and permanently correct a misaligned Atlas with just one application. The AtlasPROfilax® application consists of a safe, strategic, non-chiropractic massage to the short musculature of the neck, to loosen the tension and allow the Atlas to return to its natural position.
The Atlas is the first cervical vertebrea [C1], it is the main one as it gives balance, control and suspension of the spine. In most of us the Atlas is out of alignment from birth and even before birth, as even babies born by caesarean generally have their Atlas out of place. If the C1 is not in place the spine is not straight, the pelvis is not level and one leg can be shorter than the other. It is therefore very important to reposition the Atlas into its proper place.
‘The Atlas is like the first link on a chain. If the first link is twisted the rest of the chain will be twisted. If you untwist that first link the chain will straighten up’.
