If a Patient comes in complaining of grinding their teeth or clenching their jaw, I know I can help them. What is interesting, is that sometimes jaw pain can lead to symptoms you wouldn't necessarily expect to be due to a TMJ disorder.

Age Powerfully with Facial Renewal


Age Powerfully and Embrace Deep Beauty with the Three Treasures of Facial Renewal. Today I wanted to write about the theme of my upcoming book trilogy. This focuses on embracing deep beauty to age powerfully. The idea behind this is changing our mindset when it comes to how we age. Changing it from a place of fear around aging. Becoming "less than" as we age, and that focuses on outer beauty as society tells us. By choosing to focus on surface aging, we ignore the deeper layers of ourselves.
