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.
The Atlas Profilax realignment 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).
Correction and Self Healing
Rene C. Schumperli developed a revolutionary method that successful aligns the atlas vertebra without cracking, rough handling or traction, in 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.
