Maria Stein (Physiotherapist)
My name is Maria Stein. As a trained physiotherapist with the additional qualification “Bobath Therapist for Children and Adults” I have been in practice since my exam in 1999. Especially in the fields of “muscular tension” and “problems with glued fascia” very often people come up to me and seek advice.
Even as a physiotherapist, I am often not free of complaints – contrary to the opinion of many of my patients. Tensions occur again and again, especially in the ISG and the BWS sector. This is certainly also due to my work, which does not leave out an unpleasant attitude and heavy burden.
Some time ago, I came across a product that helps me mobilize, loosen the muscles and re-regulate tensions: the PLEXUS medical device. After the first applications with PLEXUS standard, I sometimes even reach for the PLEXUS Large. Due to the height I effectively reach the pelvic and LWS area.
In the meantime, I am so enthusiastic about the product and its mode of action that I often give home a PLEXUS to selected back patients between therapy units to help them maintain the mobilizing treatment success and to be able to continue the therapy with progress next time.
Compared to various fascia rolls, the PLEXUS can be used to loosen the fabric much more purposefully and effectively and to work in depth. Joints in the hip, pelvic and spinal areas can be mobilized.
Annetta Ba. (Physiotherapist)
For 17 years I have been working as a physiotherapist and manual therapist with the additional qualification Cranio-Sacral Therapy from the field of osteopathy.
Many patients, who are often confronted with the consequences of headache, dizziness or jaw tension in cervical spine problems, can usually be treated very successfully with muscle-relaxing techniques such as the so-called Cranial Base Release by relaxing the highly cervical (skull-close) neck muscles by the pressure point massage of the therapist.
With this therapy, after a few treatments, there has been a significant improvement.
However, patients will have recurrent symptoms after some time if this technique is no longer performed after the treatment has been completed.
So far, there have been no effective ways to give my patients something home so they can maintain this relaxed condition.
It was only after I got to know the ATLAS that I discovered a way to provide an equally precise variant for “self-relaxation” at home.
Even after a car accident, I myself have repeated complaints after many years, especially about the everyday stress that my profession demands.
Finally, thanks to the ATLAS, I also manage to treat tension headaches and subsequent complaints of my slingshot trauma suffered at that time and to avoid pain already preventively. I find the wide range of applications of the ATLAS, which ranges from the upper neck muscles to the lower shoulder-neck muscles, optimal.
Furthermore, I am convinced by the possibility of successfully mobilizing even the often stubborn area of the transition from the thoracic spine to the cervical spine, popularly known as the “witwenhump”, with the ATLAS and thus keeping it more painless. Regularly applied, you can see significant posture improvements.
