I attended a conference in October 2008. I learned a few extra good things and integrated them with old knowledge: it is now easier for me to help people with hand and foot stress, visual stress, and hormonal stress.
SPHENOID MAXILLA: The (upper mouth) maxilla moves up and down on the sphenoid. The upper mouth is supposed to move up and down even when you aren't talking. If it doesn't move it causes extremity (hand and foot) problems visual stress and hormonal imbalances.
There are 4 areas this work helps with
1) ARM and Hand Symptoms: Tennis Elbow, carpal tunnel, hand and forearm pain, paresthesia, and muscle spasm.
2) Lower leg and foot symptoms: Knee, lower leg, ankle, and foot (tarsal tunnel) symptoms such as burning pain numbness and muscle spasm.
3) Visual sensitivity bright light bothers gives you eye strain Head ache etc.
4) Hormonal balance The pituitary is the master gland of the endocrine system. The pituitary gets stressed when the maxilla doesn't move. Endocrine Hormonal balance has to do with the synchrony between the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, and gonads, (which is the ovaries in woman and the testicles in men).
The maxilla (upper mouth) articulates with the sphenoid and the sphenoid supports the pituitary and the optic nerves. Maxilla (upper mouth) motion helps the pituitary to function normally
There is also the factor of growth of new cells. When people are older we usually don't want to get bigger just replace the old cells with new vital cells. To feel young is the ideal so that as we go through life we can focus on life not on our pains.
How does this work? The lower leg motion on the ankle moving in or out is directly connected to where the upper teeth hook into your mouth (Maxilla). If the ankle doesn't move in on the one side this means the maxilla on the other side isn't moving up and is staying part way or all the way down. The front of the maxilla moves with the same side ankle moving out. So your ankle is supposed to move in easy and move out easy. Some people have good motion but sometimes they are still not normal as they have a neutral Cat II. In general if you have some of the above symptoms, I will evaluate and see if you need any treatment to help with the above 4 areas. Normally your upper mouth, (maxilla), moves up when you breathe in and when you breathe out it moves down. It moves up on the sphenoid, which has a type of sliding joint that the maxilla (upper mouth) moves on. This maxilla motion is tied to hand and foot stress when it moves up and down. This motion of the upper mouth happens when you breathe 15 to 20 times per minute and it also happens when your brain expands and contracts 10-15 times per minute. The motion of breathing and the brain moving gets that upper mouth moving a lot and if it is jammed the forearm hand and lower leg and foot get symptoms that can be very severe.
The treatment is very gentle as it moves the bones with a very light touch.
The maxilla (upper mouth) has a roof which is called your palate. The picture is; your palate is sagging on the front and the back. This causes problems with motion of the mouth moving up and down. People often report increased strength in the hand and the foot by 20 -50 % backed up by grip strength testing in the hands when this work is done.
TREATMENT TIME: 15 minute treatments, usually about 8 to 12 visits once we can start working on these areas. These treatments can be given 2 or 3 times a week. There is some taping on the first session. The second and subsequent visits unlock the stress to the feet and hands, which is tied in to recreating normal motion to the part of the head that gives you long muscle endurance(cat lll); flexibility(Cat III); increased energy production; and a faster metabolism(cat I).
In conclusion there are 4 areas: 1) forearm and hand, 2) lower leg and foot, 3) visual sensitivity, and 4) Hormonal balance that can be helped with the sphenoid maxilla work in conjunction with the extremity work.
