The atlas is the first cervical vertebra, and along with the second vertebra, the axis, forms the joint connecting the skull and the spine. The atlas (C1) not only carries the skull, but is also responsible for the suspension, equilibrium and management of the spine and human skeleton.
AtlasPROfilax® is a neuromuscular massage technique that focuses on the short muscles of the neck – the suboccipital muscles – that surround and stabilize the head joints (base of the skull, atlas and axis vertebras).
Rene C. Schümperli developed this revolutionary method that successfully aligns the atlas vertebra without cracking, rough handling or traction, in usually only one session. After the vibrational massage of the short muscles of the neck, the atlas can move in its natural position.
The release of muscular tension in the neck corrects ligamentous and muscular compression on the atlas vertebra, producing a positive effect on the body and stimulating the healing capacity.
AtlasPROfilax® is a safe, effective, normally one-time application and does not pose any health risk.
The atlas is the key, but not a panacea. The best effect is achieved when you implement a holistic, biomechanical approach and thus optimally supplement the atlas realignment.
Attitude & Health
Our method helps you with your posture and you help yourself with your attitude. To maintain the biomechanical balance you have to keep moving.
Treatment of Causes
We do not treat the symptoms with the Atlas therapy, but the cause of your discomfort. This is the key to sustainability.
