AtlasProFilax anyone??

Been told today my Atlas is out by the massage therapist and correcting it could solve some pain and body alignment issues. She gave a killer massage but seems a bit alternative so I'm concerned this AtlasProFilax treatment is a bit smoke n mirrors (sniffing oils and that type of stuff). She doesn't do it, another alternative type healthcare lady does it.

So basically the bit of spine where my head bolts on is crooked and need straightening.

Anybody had this done? Or heard of this?

So she's basically telling you you need to get your head screwed on straight.
Sounds like my parents

I don't have anything constructive to offer, but I do think that sometimes old style or alternative methods have merit.

No idea about that but are you in Melbourne?

Can recommend an excellent Osteo if you think that might help.

I'm not against the alternative but just the $300 price tag, I think some have merit other are straight BS.

Thinking a chiropractor/Osteo might be the next step, see what their opinion is about it. Thanks for the offer I'm too far away.

Try yoga, it's good stuff. Takes a while of consistent practice to get the full benefits however.

My wife has had fish waved and slapped over her head! or similar. She seemed to think it worked? Dunno, think it was the fact she spent a fortune to somebody to go fishing for more fish and was justifying it. Go for it. I used to think that about acupuncher, but it sorted my shoulder out
