Beka is literally getting her head put on straight using an Atlas Orthogonal Percussion Instrument (AOI) that is very precise and gentle.
The first vertebra of the spine is C1 or the Atlas. The head should sit level on the atlas and the atlas should sit squarely on the cervical (neck) spine. The delicate upper neck, where the skull and atlas are located, is the most movable and least stable area of the entire spine.
An atlas misalignment can be precisely measured and adjusted using X-rays that are analyzed to determine the exact angles needed to balance the atlas. The different angles become the patient's individual "listings". This listing information is used to prepare the adjusting instrument for the patient and can be reproduced and the same listing information can be used with other Atlas Orthogonal Doctors around the world.
The Atlas is like the top link in a chain, when twisted or turned, the rest of the links or spine have to follow. Migraines, anxiety, neck, low or mid-back pain can be caused by the C1 or Atlas misalignment.
