The jaw and neck hold tension and dysfunction for a very large percentage of the population, but few massage practitioners know how to specifically and effectively address it. This 16-hour class will give the most useful details of anatomy, give you tools to test mobility and assess structure, and palpate and treat some of the most important and elusive regions. You will learn:
Specific anatomy of the upper cervical spine, TMJ, and jaw and cervical musculature
Specific palpation of the deep cervical paraspinal muscles, the suboccipitals, and the longus colli and capitus
Visual and joint mobility assessment for the neck, jaw, and face
Myofascial work for the cervical and jaw regions
Intraoral work for the temporal and pterygoid muscles
Discussion of the common symptoms for whiplash and TMJD
This class meets the 16-hour Washington State Intraoral Endorsement Requirement.
