The atlas (C1) not only carries the skull, but is also responsible for the suspension, equilibrium and management of the spine and human skeleton. AtlasPROfilax® 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).

Is the AtlasPROfilax® application safe?
The AtlasPROfilax® method does not pose any health risk because the mechanical vibration is tailored to each individual and works without any manipulation or direct contact to the atlas vertebra. The application works only on the short muscles of the neck in order to let the atlas move into its natural and stable position.
The AtlasPROfilax application can be performed only by an AtlasPROfilax specialist (Atlasprof) who has been educated and certified at the AtlasPROfilax Academy Switzerland.
