Had heavy dentistry work done? Why you should consider seeing a Cranial Osteopath

After having extensive dental work done, you may experience discomfort, pain or tension in the jaw, neck and head. These issues can be caused by the stress placed on the body during the dental procedure, as well as the emotional stress that may accompany it.

A cranial osteopath can help to alleviate these symptoms by using gentle manual techniques to release tension in the muscles, bones and tissues of the head, neck and jaw. Cranial osteopathy is based on the principle that the body is a self-healing mechanism, and that the cranial bones, membranes and fluids have a subtle rhythmic motion that can be felt by a skilled practitioner.

During a session with a cranial osteopath, the practitioner will use gentle touch and pressure to feel for areas of restriction or tension in the cranial bones and tissues. By applying gentle manual techniques, the practitioner can help to release these restrictions, allowing the body to return to its natural state of balance and health.

In the case of dental work, a cranial osteopath can help to release tension in the jaw and neck, which can improve circulation and reduce inflammation. They may also work on the cranial bones, such as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), to help improve the overall function of the jaw.

In addition to addressing physical issues, cranial osteopathy can also help to address emotional stress and anxiety that may be associated with dental work. By releasing tension in the body, the therapy can help to create a sense of relaxation and calm, promoting a more positive outlook and improving overall well-being.

Overall, if you have had extensive dental work done, it may be beneficial to consider seeing a cranial osteopath to help alleviate any discomfort or tension in the head, neck and jaw, as well as promote overall health and well-being.
