Discover how the realignment of the Atlas vertebra might solve your headaches, migraines, vertigo, whiplash, neck and back pain and many other complaints…

The Atlas is an important part of the body as it cradles the skull and carries the weight of the head. All of the blood headed for the brain flows through it and what’s more, it directs all the nerves from the spinal cord.

When the Atlas is correctly aligned you will notice improved blood circulation throughout the body, an increased range of movements, a release of muscular tension and so much more.

Our posture is affected by the Atlas because when it is misaligned all the other parts of the body must change position to compensate. This deviation of the natural form creates a variety of problems over time, including pinched nerves, sleeplessness, vertigo, migraines and much more.

The first part of the Atlasprofilax treatment is an assessment by our qualified AtlasProfilax specialist. The patient’s posture, range of movement and balance is examined. Following this, the specialist will apply the Atlasprofilax technique to correctly align the Atlas. Afterwards, the same tests are administered to check the effectiveness of the treatment. We are unique in that we offer two further consultations a couple of months after the treatment, to test the body’s self-healing process. There is no added fee for these consultations, as the Atlasprofilax is a one-time procedure..

 

What is the Atlas?

The Atlas vertebra is named after the Greek titan, who was punished by Zeus and forced to carry the weight of the heavens on his shoulders for eternity..

As in the myth, the first cervical vertebra is known as the Atlas because it bears the entire weight of the head.

When this vertebra is misaligned, the communication between the brain and the rest of the body is disturbed, which can lead to many health problems..

The Atlas Misaligned

 

Clinical research has shown that the atlas is more or less malrotated in almost all humans from birth. Trauma such a whiplash, falls, or sports injuries can push the atlas vertebra into a worse position.

When the atlas is misaligned, it has a “domino” effect on the entire body, including the musculoskeletal, circulatory and nervous systems, and creates imbalances and dysfunctions. These malfunctions might turn, over time, into serious health problems. The body is unable to function properly and quality of life may be compromised without any awareness.

A misaligned Atlas causes neck and lower back pain and can also have a negative impact on muscles, joints, eyes, ears, jaw, nerves, circulatory system, organs of equilibrium and interior organs.

The Atlas Realigned

An atlas in its correct position boosts circulation and shifts the centre of gravity, thus reducing or eliminating headaches, migraines, vertigo, neck stiffness, back pain and many other health problems.

The AtlasPROfilax application is not an alternative to a medical treatment or diagnosis. You must not interrupt or stop any ongoing medical treatments and any necessary treatments don’t have to be postponed. The AtlasPROfilax method is neither a diagnostic method nor a medical therapy. No diseases, no symptoms of disease, no disorders and no sickness are treated.

Atlas Subluxated- If the atlas is misaligned (subluxated) it causes the head to tilt. The body instinctively tries to straighten the head up while keeping the head over the feet (centre of gravity). This causes STRESS throughout the rest of the spine, the shoulders, the pelvis, the hips, the knees, and the ankles.

Subluxations (misalignments) are often deceiving. Even though symptomatic pain may appear in the lower back, legs, shoulders, arms or other parts of the body, their cause is very often located in the cervical spine (neck

 

How does this unique method differ from a General Chiropractic treatment? One of the most obvious differences is the gentle way in which the practitioner works. No strenuous manipulation is needed. The method consists of applying a patented device, AtlasPROfilax® Wellness, on the short neck musculature to loosen the existing tensions and allow the atlas to naturally come back into its natural position. The patient will feel a gentle vibration during the treatment.

The AtlasPROfilax® method works on freeing the soft tissue and musculature around the vertebrae but not on the vertebrae itself. There is no popping, twisting or cracking of the neck or any cervical.

It may happen that a particular person is so ill and his/her body is so exhausted, that it cannot regenerate. In such a case, the correction is useless.
