Correcting TMJ--Structural Priority
The TMJ is like a second brain controlled by 3,000 brain cells. If it is blocked, structural corrections may not hold, because the brain cannot tell the muscles to sustain them. Chronic illnesses and stress may be associated with TMJ blockage. Causes are food allergies, emotional stress, physical trauma, and dental work.
If the TMJ is weak with the mouth closed, it can be corrected by heavy pressure at origin and insertion points of the muscle on either side of the joint. If it is weak with the mouth open, the problem is the muscle inside the mouth. If working on someone else, put on a rubber glove and use the index finger to apply heavy pressure to either side of the joint at origin and insertion points. Check emotions to be sure no emotional energy is stored in this joint.
