Interestingly, there is a strong and important reciprocal relationship between the jaw bones and the pelvic area. Both deal with primitive survival issues (eating and procreating to stay alive); both deal with centering and balance. When a baby goes from crawling to standing, the pelvic area and low back help to stabilize the child. The last “righting” or balancing mechanism in our bony structure as we stand upright is the jaw. It will attempt to “right” any imbalances from the spine.
In Books Neural Therapy™, we address each area separately and then together. There are many, many steps to this fascinating TMJ component.
