The status of the jaw affects the whole body. Most people have a jaw that is out of balance however as the symptoms are not necessarily located around the jaw, it is unusual to make the connection.
Resetting the jaw can be beneficial for several conditions, including headaches, grinding teeth, sinus, back aches, fibromyalgia, arthritis, bladder problems, brain fog, leg and hip pain just to list some.
Prolonged opening of the mouth during a dentist appointment may set up a jaw imbalance. During a session your dentist may also be assessing a TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) dysfunction.
Kinesiology testing can be used to look at the jaw holistically, analysing structural, chemical, emotional and energetic involvement.
With a simple muscle test we are able to assess if the jaw needs structural correction and which muscle in particular, including occipital (back of skull) involvement. With another simple test we can establish if Hypothalamus or Atlas are relevant to the jaw imbalance: the first being involved with several endocrine functions and the latter with balance.
Systematic Kinesiology TMJ testing and treatment are performed over one session lasting 75 minutes. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, further sessions might be needed. If the jaw balance is only required as a follow up to the dentist appointment, normally one session is sufficient.
