Atlas Vertebra and Acupuncture

The atlas is the first vertebra at the top of the spine.  Most all of the meridians of the body traverse this vertebral region: lung, heart, kidney,and liver to name a few. Therefore,  the organ systems associated with the meridians are intimately related to the atlas. Combining acupuncture and gentle adjustments of the atlas and cervial spine is one of the most dynamic combinations to restore flow to and through the meridians of the body for optimal function and health.
