The #1 Worldwide Leading Atlas Treatment

Many years of clinical research have shown that this first cervical vertebra is more or less malrotated from birth, in almost all humans. Trauma such as whiplash, slips and falls, car accidents, or any sports/work injuries can push the atlas in an even worse position and, therefore, be the cause of many health problems.

The atlas, (C1), the first cervical vertebrae connects the skull and the spine. It not only carries the skull but is also responsible for the suspension, equilibrium and management for the spine and skeleton. The atlas is involved in more than 50% of the rotation of the cervical spine. It has 12 muscles attached with numerous nerves involved. When the atlas is misaligned, it causes the head to tilt, and the spine compensates the malrotation of the atlas with a rotation down to the sacroiliac joint, trying to maintain the center of gravity. This will cause neck pain and lower back pain and impacts the entire spine. The malrotation of the atlas could also have a negative impact on muscles, joints, nerves, eyes, ears, jaw, circulatory system, organs of equilibrium and interior organs.

What is AtlasPROfilax?

AtlasPROfilax®, a modern neuromuscular massage technique, applies vibro pressure and massages the short neck muscles, with significant and sustainable effect on the first cervical vertebra (atlas). It releases a pressure on the pyramidal tracts, relieves muscle tension and nerve compression and facilitates self-recovery of the spine system. By treatment with AtlasPROfilax, the body’s homeostasis will be established and patients can easily control their body through flexible action of limbs in line with brain function.

And the most revolutionary about this technique: it’s a safe, instantly effective and is usually a one-time application! There are no contraindications for Atlas Profilax treatments.

How does your Atlas affect your posture?

Rene Schumperlii, the founder of the AtlasPROfilax method maintained that most humans have a malrotated atlas or more technically a minor intervertebral dysfunction (MID) of the atlas.

For every inch of Forward Head Posture, it can increase the weight of the head on the spine by an additional 10 pounds.” (Kapandji, Physiology of Joints, Vol. 3). This study also showed that the AtlasPROfilax Method is effective for correcting this MID Minor Intervertebral Dysfunction.

It has been observed that following the AtlasPROfilax treatment postural changes occur immediately and furthermore changes continue to occur for at least a few years. This corrective movement begins to reverse the displacement of the center of gravity of the skull and spine. The spinal column tends to return to its natural axis, which allows discs to recover their natural elasticity coefficient.

From Our 

“I no longer have to live with chronic pain! I had lost all hope of having a good quality of life until I got this treatment. This miracle treatment has been a lifesaver for me. I have my life back!!”



“I’ve had the AtlasPROfilax procedure done, an alternative holistic approach I had not considered before for my transient lower back pain. It was so fast! I have noticed decreased lower back pain and improvement in my overall posture shortly after my procedure. I have recommended this to patients of mine who suffer from chronic pain, headaches, and seizures.”

“I have no more headaches after receiving AtlasProfilax treatment. Most of all I have referred many of my patients with degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis and they have all shown great improvements as well!”

What is the difference between AtlasPROfilax®
and other atlas treatments or therapies?

Since muscles and fascia play the major part in realigning the atlas, it’s logic that any therapy or method neglecting these impacts is not capable of either realigning the first cervical vertebra, nor doing so permanently.

AtlasPROfilax® is the original method to realign the atlas and correct its position in a sustainable way by means of a neuromuscular massage of the short neck muscles. No additional treatment of muscles before the treatment is required either.

It is indicated to apply it to children as early as possible to prevent problems and allow them to grow up healthy and develop in the most optimum way. Since the human body is able to heal itself thanks to the Atlasprofilax method this is used primarily as a preventative measure. Rene-Claudius Schumperli developed this method to get the atlas into a stable position, both gently and permanently.
