Dear Craniosacral Therapists in NYC & Michael Shea’s training,
I found a wonderful bite/tmj specialist Dentist who follows the Cranial Rhythm during his sessions to help him develop the right bite guard, augmentation of teeth and other subtle interventions. Last month, I followed him as he treated a number of patients and now I’ve gone myself and wanted to share him as a resource.
His name is Kem Moser and he practices in NYC at Dentistry for Health (Reid Winick’s DDS. Holistic dentistry clinic) and in PA
His work with me has been incredibly illuminating, showing me how different parts of our jaw structure develop in our formative years or don’t develop so fully, creating an incorrect bite, which then can create dysfunction throughout the spine and body. There’s even a lineage of dentists who use the Cranial Rhythm as a guide that I’d never even heard of.
His specificity is really amazing. Using my own sessions as an example, he noted that my right maxilla is stuck in flexion, forcing the left side to overcompensate during the extension phase. He also noticed that my maxilla, compared to my mandible didn’t develop as fully. When testing a guard, he’ll have clients bite down, then he’ll follow if the cranial rhythm gets fully and longer. As he corrects the bite, I could feel a clarity within my head compared to when the bite plate wasn’t fully balanced.
So he’s really an amazing resource for us in the Cranial world with clients perhaps having structural jaw dysfunction as a source of tension.
You can contact him at his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
He’s up at Dentistry for Health, Thurs and Fri 212 973 9425
