“I had to wait so many years after Moshe to find somebody who would re-awaken my curiosity: someone who would allow me to search for new ways of thinking. This person was Frank Wildman, a new light in the field of the evolution of movement.”

—Michel Silice-Feldenkrais, Director, Feldenkrais Institute, Tel Aviv

“Frank’s Intelligent Body is a great all-around set for both the professional and for general use. The exercises are functionally effective, creative, and a pleasure to do.”

—Mark Reese, Ph.D.

“Frank Wildman embodies not only the gentleness of this new learning method, he reflects the excitement in the discovery of freedom.”

 The TMJ Program

The TMJ Program includes 6 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.

The TMJ program was an “Aha” moment in my life. I had suffered from really bad headaches and migraines for years and had used every known therapy and cure to help but to no avail. When I used the TMJ Intelligent Body lessons, I experienced enormous relief and since then no more headaches. -O-sel Nyima

Definitely improved my TMJ symptoms. At first I used it about 5 times a week for about 2 months. Now I use the movements I learned whenever I feel my jaw tighten. I use the lessons before and after going to the dentist – he has used Dr. Wildman’s program himself. -Marcia Clark

This is much easier to do than get $6,000 worth of braces or dental work.  -Frances Delucia

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.
