The Method

R.C. Schümperli developed a unique method to safely realign the atlas with just one application. The AtlasPROfilax® application consists of a safe, strategic, non-chiropractic massage to the short musculature of the neck, to loosen the tension and allow the atlas to return to its natural position.

Marie uses a specially designed hand held patented device (AtlasPROfilax® Wellness) on the soft tissues around the Atlas and the client will feel a gentle vibration during the procedure. The AtlasPROfilax® method works on freeing the soft tissue and musculature around the vertebrae not on the vertebrae itself. There is no popping, twisting or cracking of the neck or any cervical vertebrae…. This is a non-medicinal and non-chiropractic therapy.


Body cells and organs do not, however, regenerate overnight. Likewise the restoration of skeleton balance and posture improve gradually depending on the physical constitution of each individual.


Following the AtlasPROfilax® Wellness Technique, it is possible that you could experience a variety of responses all of which indicate self-healing has begun. These may include tiredness and muscle tension around the neck and lumbar 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 AtlasPROfilax® Technique only needs to be applied once in most cases.
However, as stated the body and organs do not regenerate overnight. Some additional treatments such as massage, diet, detoxifying procedures, may also prove beneficial to support the process commenced through having the Atlas realigned.
In addition, other treatments and therapies may be more effective as a result of a corrected Atlas.


The AtlasPROfilax® Wellness procedure should only be performed by a specialist who has been trained, assessed and certified by the AtlasPROfilax® Academy in Switzerland, SA CH 3960 Sierre, preferably by a practitioner who has achieved the highest level of education. The method is non-medicinal and is non-chiropractic.


Misaligned Atlas
Aligned Atlas
The Atlas should be sitting level, or square, on the cervical spine (neck), and the head should be square on the Atlas. It basically asks the question: “Is your head on straight?” The Atlas is the top bone of the spine. It is the vertebra that the head sits on.

Misalignments may often be deceiving. Even though symptomatic pain may occur in the lower back, legs, shoulders, arms or other parts of the body, their cause is very frequently located in the cervical spine (i.e. neck).

How does this unique method differ from general chiropractic treatment? One of the most obvious differences is the gentle way in which the practitioner works. No strenuous manipulation is needed. The method consists of applying a patented device, AtlasPROfilax® Wellness, on the short neck musculature to loosen the existing tensions and allow the Atlas to come back naturally into its normal position. The AtlasPROfilax® method works on freeing the soft tissue and musculature around the vertebrae but not directly on the vertebrae themselves. There is no popping, twisting or cracking of the neck or any cervical joints. As previously stated, the method is very safe, non-invasive, non-medicinal and non-chiropractic.
