Save Your Jaw, Save Your Teeth From the Ravages of Stress

Do you ever wonder why you clench or grind your jaw when you are stressed?


This is because your jaw is intimately connected with your sympathetic nervous system's fight or flight response. This response is hard-wired to react to stress by creating tension, guarding and vigilance in your body.


When stress is at hand and your fight and flight response moves into action, it is not unusual for your jaw and related tissue to tense up. Sometimes such tension causes clenching and grinding of the teeth, especially at night. This is a common adult condition.  


Eventually, you may begin to develop symptoms such as headaches, ear pain, tight neck, shoulders and back, tooth pain, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) problems, and may require special dental work to remedy damaged teeth.


CranioSacral Therapy can help you become reacquainted with the rest and relax response of your parasympathetic nervous system so that you can manage your stress with greater calm and balance, release jaw strain, and save your vital teeth.

Please share this information with your friends, colleagues and loved ones who may benefit from it and encourage them to put their vitality first.
