Jaw & Neck
3-Day Training, 22 Hours
Prerequisite: Core Practices
In this Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy course you will learn about and practice craniosacral working within and around the mouth and neck. Working here can be a very deep experience for the client in releasing trauma and tension at the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Mental and emotional stress can manifest in the temporomandibular joint region as clenching, grinding of the teeth, periodontal atrophy, cracking, clicking, reduced mobility, headaches, and myofascial pain at the face, neck and shoulders. Inflammation at the TMJ can also contribute to systemic inflammation in the body.
This work also has a positive effect on the Vagus nerve and feeling safe in one's body and can assist in the normal growth and development of the jaw in children and adults.
Learn about the Stomatognathic System.
Learn many intra-oral and new external cranial contacts.
Learn a gentle method to release the cervical spine.
Learn about the development of the jaw and ways to correct imbalance.
Learn contacts for the sternum, scapulae and clavicles.
Receive multiple craniosacral sessions throughout the three days.
"I am absolutely loving the intra-oral mouth work with clients. Most of my clients are having some degree of it during a session, and so much interesting feedback about their experience of it and the subtle memories it brings up in their bodies and system. It’s amazing, healing and deeply restorative of a sense of safety. This morning I had a 2 week old client who came in for treatment, and I did a little mouth work, it was beautiful." – Lisa N
“Prior to completing this level, I could not have anticipated just how powerful the intra-oral work could be. In my practise as a myotherapist, I have found the jaw work to be a very practical introduction to craniosacral, due to such issues as jaw/teeth grinding, snoring, pain from dental procedures, TMJ, etc. A lot of these patients now receive craniosacral work as a matter of course.” – Shane McNear
"Michael thank you for an awesome Jaw and Neck course, it was a profound experience for me to witness and participate in and I learned and experienced a lot. I really appreciated observing and learning how you calmly, masterfully and gently facilitated emotional release within the sacred space provided. Thank you again." - Diane F
