WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
Your head is gently supported as gentle vibration and massaging pulses are focused on the soft tissue / muscles surrounding your atlas C1 Vertebra.
The muscles are sufficiently softened with the massage and the atlas naturally finds its correct alignment and balance.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
The same as having a back massage, when there is pain and tension in the muscles, then it is not possible to massage them without some pain and discomfort occurring.
However once the pain held in the muscles is released, there is great relief and you can then enjoy the procedure and find it deeply relaxing and meditative.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE TO DO?
The alignment takes place in one session that lasts approximately one hour. Included in your treatment is a follow up session in 3 to 4 weeks following the initial consult to confirm the correction is effective.
WHAT IS YOUR NEW PATIENT PROCEDURE?
The patient fills up a questionnaire, is given tests to verify the extent of atlas malrotation (if any).
WHY IS THE ATLAS OUT OF ALIGNMENT IN 99% PEOPLE?
Although no one single scientific answer has been proven, it is thought that child birthing and early child hood falls are the initial cause, followed by the increased propensity to have sporting injuries, knocks to the head, car accidents and whiplashes as a compound issue from the original cause and contribute to the atlas C1 Vertebra misalignment.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE SESSION?
This Atlas Alignment Technique is NON-chiropractic, it is a massage technique, there is NO manipulation, no cracking and no twisting of neck is involved.
Your head is comfortably supported as gentle vibrations and pulses are directed onto the soft muscle tissue surrounding the atlas C1 vertebra by the special Atlas massage tool.
Once the soft muscle tissue surrounding your Atlas is sufficiently massaged enough, using a special sequence, your atlas will naturally return to its appropriate alignment.
The vibrations and pulses from the massage tool can be really relaxing. It is not uncommon for people to enjoy the sensation of wholeness as balance, alignment and flow are restored, as one’s head, neck and body unify.
This technique is suitable for all ages 6 months plus. Giving your children the best possible chance to grow up strong and healthy, the earlier in life this is facilitated the better for them.
A follow up session will be arranged with you, after your treatment for 3-4 weeks later to ascertain that your Atlas C1 Vertebra has retained its alignment.
DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL?
POST TREATMENT, HOW WILL I FEEL IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS?
Most people feel better immediately. Some people feel the alignment takes longer, over a few weeks to settle.
You are unique and therefore your healing process is unique. Most discomfort disappears directly, and a straighter posture may result, as the body continues to straighten. This procedure aligns the Atlas C1 Vertebra and by virtue of that the whole skeletal structure is aligned as aresult. It can take up to 6 months for your muscles to recalibrate to your new position, depending on your general health and personal level of fitness and your exercise and stretching program.
