Atlas is a Greek word and means ,carrier‘. In Greek mythology Atlas was a Titan who carried and supported heaven at its most western
point of the world known at that day and age.
Anatomically atlas is the first vertebrae. Similar to the Gods in Greek mythology it has a supportive function: It carries the scalp and is the junction (connection) between head and spine.
Dr. Arlen‘s Atlastherapy
Dr. Arlen was born in Hoerdt (French Alsace) in 1925. He studied medicine in Strasbourg and had a practice in Münster where he developed
a special diagnostic (metamerdiagnostic) method and Atlastherapy. Since 1984 he has offered regular training classes.
The number of sessions depends on the results: Often his therapy is successful after only one treatment.
In comparison to the usual therapeutic manipulations done manually this Atlastherapy is a very careful manipulation.
I acquired the correct impulse giving (technique) with reference to its length and strength in appropriate classes on a computer based model.
The impulse for infants is different from an impulse for adults.
