Craniosacral Therapy for TMJ

One of the hardest working joints in the body, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge between your jaw and skull, and is critical for speaking, chewing, yawning and making facial expressions.

Unfortunately, many of us suffer from temporomandibular disorders (TMD) which can cause pain and make it difficult for us to open and close our mouths.

But summer footwear doesn’t always provide good arch support for your feet, particularly when you’re spending hours outside enjoying the sunshine.
