QUOTABLE QUOTES

From the first day, all through life, the jaws help maintain the vital human airway.
Essentials of Face Growth, 1996

A strong association has been found between exclusive bottle-feeding and malocclusion.
Journal of the Canadian Dental Association, 1991

Is your child a mouth breather? Does she still wet the bed? Are you or your children
grinding your teeth at night? Do your shoulders and neck ache all the time? Is your wife
or husband threatening to sleep in another room because of your snoring?
The problem may be your Jaw!

Jaws are the door to the airway, and jaws and airways are getting smaller. Most people have jaws averaging 1/4 inch too small to fit wisdom teeth.

This problem is made worse by the practice of orthodontic extraction - the so called "4 bi extraction" standard procedure still used today, further reducing an already restricted airway.

What are some health consequences of overbites, underbites, narrow and too small jaws? Of prime importance is the effect on our bodies of not getting enough life-giving oxygen. (See typical signs below)

CranioSacral Therapy and Jaws

CranioSacral Therapy works by helping the body’s natural healing mechanisms dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system.

And a reduced flow of oxygen is definitely a stress on our bodies!

The joint formed between the lower jaw (mandible) and the temporal bones, the TMJ, is well-known these days. When the jaw does not grow down and forward after birth as much as nature intended, or when a dentist applies great pressure against the hard palate when extracting a wisdom tooth, for example, malocclusions and restrictions to the normal movement of the jaw and the temporal bones may occur.

CranioSacral Therapy can help relieve these restrictions and restore mobility. The problem may be coming from the sacrum, causing dysfunction up the spine into the head, neck and shoulders. But a great majority of clients I see, both children and adults, have some “jamming in” of the temporal bones, with cascading effects in other areas of their physical, mental and emotional health. When required, I work in collaboration with dentists and orthodontists who use functional, non-extraction orthodontic appliances.

 
     
 

Mesothelioma.com is a leading web resource for those affected by mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that occurs in the lining of the lungs
and abdomen. The American Cancer Society understands that Craniosacral Therapy can be a beneficial, non-invasive addition to a cancer patient's treatment regimen, as it may relieve pain and headaches and lessen patient discomfort. When used in harmony with conventional cancer management methods, such as chemotherapy, Craniosacral Therapy may promote a sense of calm and is said to aid in the function
of a cancer sufferer's immune system.
