The AtlasPROfilax Method:
The atlas is the first cervical vertebra, and along with the second vertebra, the axis forms the joint connecting the skull and the spine. When malrotated, it is the underlying cause of many health problems.
The atlas not only carries the skull, but is responsible for the suspension, equilibrium and management of the spine and human skeleton. In most cases, the atlas is in a malrotated position and thus, the cause of pain and discomfort. A misaligned atlas leads to continuous pressure on the spinal cord and blood vessels while changing the biomechanics of the body. This adversely affects the skeletal, muscular and nervous system. An atlas in its correct position optimizes circulation and shifts the center of gravity, thus reducing, or eliminating headaches, migraines, vertigo, neck stiffness and back pain.
AtlasPROfilax® is a neuromuscular massage technique that focuses on the short muscles of the neck – the sub occipital muscles – that surround and stabilize the head joints (base of the skull, atlas and axis vertebras). After the vibrational massage of the short muscles of the neck, the atlas can move in its natural position. AtlasPROfilax is a safe, non invasive method that offers immediate and lasting results.
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.
