Release Your Jaw, Your Voice, Your Whole Self Seminar
(Fri eve-Sun) #20-224725

Clenching teeth is often a deep-seated pattern of action that one is not aware of until a dentist points out damage done to the teeth. Or, one might notice headaches or other symptoms resulting from temporal-mandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD).

This course is designed to offer practical strategies from the Feldenkrais Method®, to complement techniques used for those with head, neck, shoulder and jaw joint discomforts.

Participants will explore how to use a client’s nervous system to help modulate muscle tone, use the skeleton as support, view muscle tension as part of a habitual pattern and develop skills to interrupt held patterns. Attention is focused relationally to the jaw joint, with movement explorations of the breath, the eyes, the tongue and voice along with postural support for head, neck and shoulders. Participants discover the power variations to tension in eyes, tongue and voice have in re-organizing the use of the JAW and one’s WHOLE SELF.

This Seminar employs many underused lessons from theFeldenkrais® Library for eyes, palate, voice and breathing.

  • Identify physiological response to fear noticing muscle tensions.
  • View tension in muscles as part of a muscular pattern, held in the Brain Map
  • Identify many possible interruptions to jaw tightening including held intercostal muscles and abdominal muscles, as well as increased use of the eyes, throat, and voice. Demonstrate the ability to pause and connect with clients through inquiry and curiosity.
  • Demonstrate an ability to use TOUCH TO INFORM
