Dainty, you made many points, I thought I would quote your entire post, and make a few comments [in blue and in brackets] after some of your comments. I hope this attempt at clarity works. Dainty, you make many good points, but as you can probably tell from my notes, I feel you've over-generalized when it comes to the Atlas Profilax technique. I tried not to come across as trying to sway your own opinions/perspectives. But I felt it important to address some things that don't match with my own experience with AP. I might add that the AP practitioner in the Twin Cities who's also a Chiropractor has completely changed his orientation regarding structural issues. He made a comment to me that at "continuing education" classes he's required to take, he has to make efforts to refrain from telling the instructers and the attendees that they "have it all wrong". But he then said he understands they're just not ready to hear it. I would guess that he probably knows hundreds of techniques that can be used to address structural issues. But has come to the conviction the AP should be a (the?) primary consideration when starting on a path of addressing a body's long-term structural issues. I appreciate the time and effort you put into your post. Though I pointed out some areas where I'm in disagreement, it sure feels like I'm in agreement with 90%+ of what you had to share. Thanks!
