Address jaw pain by paying attention

Many of us experience jaw tension.

We wake up with an aching jaw or feel sore when we speak or eat. Usually, if we have jaw pain, we are clenching our jaw in times of stress – even if we don’t notice it.

My suggestion is that whenever you are anxious or tense, you check in with your jaw and unclench. A good way to release the jaw is to find space between your top and bottom back teeth and soften your tongue so that it can gently spread out on the bottom of your mouth.

We all have habitual patterns of compression and tension. By paying attention and observing ourselves over time, we can become aware of these patterns and then allow ourselves to let them go. That is why the Alexander Technique is a practice – a wonderful practice of self-discovery and change.
