 The TMJ Program

 The TMJ Program includes 5 lessons, each 10 minutes in length. The Program uses a unique understanding of human neurology to reduce chronic tension in the jaw, face, neck, and upper back, and to reverse long-standing movement habits responsible for the original TMJ symptoms. The lessons are gentle and easy to do. Reduce postural stress in the head, neck, and shoulders, and eliminate frequently occuring headaches.

TMJ symptoms can disappear within days of using these exercises. This program offers an ideal first step in the treatment of this condition. In most cases, it will eliminate the need for further measures, and if additional medical intervention is needed, your new movement patterns will increase the chances of treatment success.

Improving with Age

 The older we get, the more clever we must become. As we age, it becomes more important than ever to use our bodies more efficiently. We must improve our ease of motion, our coordination, our sense of balance, control, and comfort. After a certain age, our bodily wisdom tells us it's too difficult to slam our bones, strain our muscles, and do the things we used to do with will power and brute strength. However, there is little available in our culture to help us learn to reduce stress while increasing muscular efficiency in a pleasurable and comfortable manner. The Improving with Age Program DVD presents an alternative to pain, stiffness, and restricted movement.
