Mouth Guards, Splints, Migraines, Off Work. Jaw stories, what’s yours

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.

Are you like this angry fish with your jaw pain?

Are you like this angry fish with your jaw pain?

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!

Our jaw is more than out teeth!

Our jaw is more than out teeth!

Lets change a  culture that shifted our jaw health to a focus on our teeth’!

Feed back

 “My mouth feels more vital somehow!”

Integration of Body, Mind & Spatial Awareness

 

A message on my phone today from a client that came in for TMJ pain,..

“I notice I am walking better today.  My walking has improved!”

I smile as I connect to my need to contribute to someone else’s wellbeing and at the thought of suggesting to someone walking has anything to do with TMJ!
