Atlasprofilax for Atlas AlignmentAtlasprofilax is a method developed by RC Schumperli between 1993 and 1996, which realigns the top vertebra in the neck, the Atlas or C1, by a very specific and unique correction of the soft-tissue that holds the Atlas in place.
This realignment initiates a chain reaction as succeeding vertebrae unwind following liberation of the Atlas. Over time, postural imbalances are corrected and optimal functioning of the nervous system can be restored. Many people suffer from a misaligned Atlas without realizing that their postural imbalance and common aches and pains may have a quick and simple solution through correction of their Atlas.
Atlasprofilax Can Help with the Following:
- Back problems including trapped nerves, scoliosis;
- Stiff neck;
- Temporal mandibular disorder (TMD or TMJ);
- Migraines and headaches;
- Anxiety, depression;
- Blood pressure, hypertension;
- Displaced pelvis;
- Knee pain;
- Discrepancy between the length of the legs.
Sounding Bowls: Opening Hearts Across the WorldThe international Sculpture museum the 'Daetz Centrum' commissioned a piece from local sculptor Tobias Kaye, world renowned for his musical sculptures, Sounding Bowls.

The Daetz Centrum is Europe's leading museum of wooden sculpture. The new pattern of crossing strings that Tobias has created for this piece is believed to be unique in the world.

Quinton Marine Plasma
Over 100 years ago in France, René Quinton discovered what he described as the "origin of life". Collected from certain areas of the ocean among plankton blooms, diluted with Spring water to achieve isotonicity and cold processed to maintain its live quality, Quinton could replace the entire blood volume of dogs and keep white blood cells alive in vitro for up to a month.
Quinton Marine Plasma (QMP) was used in France in the early 20th century to treat serious epidemics including cholera, typhoid, tuberculosis and influenza and conditions such as cirrhosis of the liver, psoriasis, eczema, syphilitic diseases and athrepsia in children. QMP succeeded in correcting the internal environment of the body, allowing it to function properly and maximize recovery.
René Quinton was the first person to photographically document his patients; thousands of clinical cases were recorded in French. Originally injected, protocols have been established so that QMP is now taken orally or topically.
Further Information and Special OfferOriginal Quinton products are available in the UK and distributed through healthcare professionals only. Practitioners can buy a box of Quinton Isotonic and a box of Quinton Hypertonic as a combined one-off special offer of £40 inc VAT and p&p instead of the usual £75.
