……….but, if not in its correct position, is responsible for a large number

of painful medical conditions and illnesses.

Did you know that the first cervical vertebra – the atlas – is misaligned (or ‘luxated’) in most humans? We define the atlas as misaligned when the convex bony formations (occipital condyles) on the sides of the hole in the base of the skull (foramen magnum) do not properly fit into the convex receptacles on the top of the atlas (superior articular facets). Furthermore, one side of the atlas (transverse process) is inappropriately locked in front of another bony formation of the skull (styloid process of the temporal bone).

This condition leads to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses. Fortunately, it is now possible to relocate the atlas to its correct position using the AtlasPROfilax® method. This technique was discovered and developed in Switzerland between 1993 and 1996 by René-Claudius Schümperli (who was himself painfully affected by a luxated atlas).

This picture shows a dislocated atlas to the left side. The rotation causes a reduction in the diameter of the aperture at the base of the skull and vertebral canal. This disrupts the normal flow of information between the brain and body through vertebral and carotid arteries, the lymphatic system, the cerebral spinal fluid, the meningeal system and the spinal cord.

The atlas carries not only the skull, but also facilitates SUSPENSION, BALANCE AND CONTROL of the human spine and skeletal system. A misaligned atlas can cause significant adverse changes to the posture. The results are symptoms such as recurring migraine headaches, back and neck pain, lumbago, herniated disc(s), scoliosis, jammed spinal nerves, scoliotic pelvis, pain in the hip joints and maladies of the knee, difference in leg length, etc.

One example of a major change to the posture caused by a dislocated atlas is the scoliotic pelvis.


R.C.Schümperli developed a unique method to safely and permanently correct a misaligned atlas with just one application. The AtlasPROfilax® application consists of a safe, strategic and non-chiropractic massage to the short muscles of the neck, using a specially made massage device, to loosen the tension and allow the atlas to return to its natural position. A subsequent appointment to recheck the atlas and offering additional support for the self-healing process is essential.

When the atlas is in its correct position, the brain can function undisturbed. This promotes a feeling of harmony, setting self healing and regenerative processes on course throughout the body. The entire human organism begins to function to its fullest potential. In addition, other treatments and therapies will be more effective as a result of a corrected atlas.


Body cells and organs do not, however, regenerate over night. After the relocation of the atlas by the AtlasPROfilax® Wellness treatment, a person responds according to their individual physical and psychological condition. Healing is immediately initiated and for many symptoms are relieved. While others, especially those whose bodies have never functioned correctly or with full capacity may require more patience.


Following the AtlasPROfilax® Wellness treatment, it is possible that you will experience a variety of responses all of which indicate self-healing has begun. These may include tiredness and muscle tension around the neck and lumber region. You may experience mild versions of past ailments which have not completely healed. They can present themselves temporarily and in changed form. We recommend you observe your body carefully and write down changes in the way you feel. Support the self healing process with regular back and neck massages as well as relaxing baths.


The repositioning of the atlas is a simple and safe procedure which produces life long advantages. Children especially, can benefit from a treatment as a preventative measure, allowing them to grow up healthily and develop to their fullest potential.


The AtlasPROfilax® Wellness application can only be practiced by a specialist – an AtlasProf® – who has been educated and certified by the Atlas Academy® in Switzerland, SA CH 3960 Sierre. The method is non-medicinal and is non-chiropractic.
