Why do I need my jaw released? A lot of tension is held in our jaw muscles from wearing masks, looking at computer screens, chewing, injury or trauma to the area, not being able to speak something we want to, anxiety and grinding/clenching teeth.
*If you haven’t been able to come in because you moved out of the area, this is a way for us to continue out work together at a distance.
These sessions are short on purpose.
Our Jaw muscles are actively used throughout the day and often unconsciously engaged during the day and at night. We want to ease into releasing these muscles to not aggravate them.
What to expect during a session...
We will begin each session with a check in, followed by breath exercises that focus on relaxing the surface muscles of your face, then we will move into more direct self massage to the jaw and neck muscles. We will close with a brief check out.
How to prepare?
If possible, plan to be somewhere you have quiet, privacy and a few different sitting options. Gather different types of pillow and props. Sometimes being on a couch or a chair and using pillows to support your arms allows for more comfort and ease.
Please reach out with any concerns and accessibility needs if you have hand weakness and/or mobility constraints.
