Join Clinical Somatic Educator Sarah Warren as she guides you through a Clinical Somatics movement class in the comfort of your home.
Did you know that most Temporomandibular Joint pain is the result of chronically tight muscles?
Stress, which often leads to tightening of the facial and jaw muscles and clenching or grinding of the teeth, is one of the main causes of TMJ pain. Chronic muscle tension in the face and jaw can also develop as a reaction to an upper body injury. Chronically tight muscles in the jaw, face, neck, shoulders, back, chest, and abdominals contribute to dysfunctional use of the entire upper body, and can lead to pain in the temporomandibular joint.
In order to get lasting relief from TMJ pain, you need to train your nervous system to release your chronically tight muscles.
To retrain your nervous system to keep your muscles released, you must engage in an active learning process consisting of slow, conscious movements. Passive methods such as stretching, massage, and chiropractic don’t have any lasting effect because they do not change the messages that your brain is sending to your muscles to stay tight.
Clinical Somatic Education is gentle, therapeutic, and suitable for all ages and physical abilities.
Lie down on a carpet or exercise mat and enjoy a relaxing 75-minute Somatic movement class. At the end of the class, you’ll feel a wonderful sense of release in your jaw, face, and entire upper body.
