At the beginning of each workshop the participants share their story, if they choose. This gives me some idea of what is going on for them and hearing each others experience seems to lets them relax.
What is the story of your jaw?
I hear about the strategies the participants are given such as; surgery, splints and braces with no guarantees, or that they are going to physical therapy, having chiropractic adjustments and massages without lasting change.
In our restorative jaw workshop participants learn how to use their own movement increasing their abilities to change their own experience of a tight and tense jaw to that of a relaxed jaw. They end the workshop knowing how to:
- expand their physical movement to use their jaw differently
- re-focus their mind from thinking of solutions to integrating body intelligence.
The mind is included in our movement lessons so there is a deeper integration of learning how the mouth, tongue, lower jaw, neck, shoulders, arms, ribs, pelvis and more, are apart of the jaw function! Our jaw is more that our teeth! Get back to being body inclusive!
Lets change a culture that shifted our jaw health to a focus on our teeth’!
“My mouth feels more vital somehow!”
