CORE MYOFASCIAL THERAPY CERTIFICATION

In most of Texas, massage is done on a table so the Thai massage I'd learned was difficult to use in various settings whether I worked in a spa or clinic setting. I knew Thai massage was more effective for common client complaints and saved my hands but how cou...

THE TEMPORO-MANDIBULAR JOINT – MOST USED IN THE BODY!…AND SOMETIMES…MOST ABUSED!

The TMJ joint is the most used joint in the body. It has – like the knee – an articular disc within it!
