Workshop – TMJ Mastery

TMJ Mastery, taught by John Corry RMT, is a three-day
workshop focusing on principles and applications that explore intra-oral
techniques used to treat masticatory dysfunction. Included is a comprehensive
visual study of the continuum of articular disc derangement, and the techniques
that may restore function or alter further degeneration.

The workshop will be incorporating myofascial techniques affecting the masticatory musculature, and explore strategies to assess and restore asymmetrical condylar movement. The intra-oral techniques will also include joint mobilizations that attempt to decompress and re-establish articular disc space.  


Mastery: a process in which focus is given to a specific
subject in order to cultivate ongoing expertise. Ironically, the process is
often humbling in that each revelation leads to many more inquiries!

This is
intended as an advanced workshop for massage therapists. Therefore some
assumptions will be made regarding your familiarity of the anatomy, physiology
and mechanical function of the head, neck and face. The workshop is not meant
as a definitive, fully evidenced-based research project, but more of a working
set of ideas and principles that might bring new possibilities into a massage
therapist’s repetoire.
