Hi Everyone, I hope that you are staying well during this time of change and uncertainty. I am happy that you found my website. Perhaps you have been wondering what to do about your jaw pain? For those of us with Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD or TMJD) aka Jaw problems I would love to share my helpful tips and tricks, things you can do for yourself until we get back to treatments. You can check out my blog page or my Facebook page Angela Thompson Yoga & Massage Therapy for some of those self care tips.
Well since this is the "About Me" section let me share! I had a 10 mm overbite when I was young. This lead to jaw augmentation surgery and braces in my teens. It wasn't until 2002 when I started the massage therapy program at WCCMT that I had the realization that massage therapy could be used to treat my jaw related issues. I take as many courses as I can on the subject and have had success with my TMJ treatment techniques.
Other fun things about me is that I became a yoga teacher when I was 42 years old. I believe that movement is for every one. I welcome all body types and know how to adapt for injuries and for curvy bodies. I am a volunteer ClubFit coach with Special Olympics Fort St. John. I love all things artsy and even gave Ice Carving a try since moving to FSJ.
