TMJ Moves

Many people suffer from Temporo-mandibular Joint (TMJ) pain and problems with the function of their jaws. The neuromovement approach is a good addition to regular dental and orthodontic treatment.  These movement lessons will teach you how to reduce your pain and how to function with more ease and comfort.  

Neuromovement® is based in the understanding that movement is the language of the brain.  Movement provides the information the brain needs to grow and organize itself. And then the brain organizes all movement, thought, feeling and actions. 

The human brain is incredibly plastic - it changes throughout our lives and we now know what conditions are necessary to see the changes we want.

TMJ MOVES is a program designed specifically for people who are having pain and dysfunction with their jaws.  Included in this  group are people with bruxism or teeth grinding and clenching.  This program uses innovative movements done in a very specific way to transform your brain and to get the changes you want in your jaw and TMJ.  In these lessons you are verbally guided through movements that are easy and fun to do.  

This program does not replace care and treatment with your professional dental care provider.  It is meant to help any traditional treatment.

TMJ MOVES can be experienced in a FREE INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP or through downloadable audio recordings.  

Dates and times for free workshop will be posted in March, meanwhile if you have any questions or if you want to be put on a waitlist please phone Susinn 403-919-1881 or email

New fitness

September has come and almost gone, and I've joined a gym to get fit.  Part of my membership included two sessions with a personal trainer.  Fitness at this gym focuses on isolating muscles when developing them and doing many fast movements and the idea 'no pain, no gain' is constantly thrown out.  All these ideas are in conflict with my thinking and practice that I've developed through years of doing Feldenkrais and ABM.  I do things my way meaning that when I lift a weight I go very slow and mindful and keep the weight easy and I look to use my whole self and my weight in space to be most efficient. And I do things that involve my whole self such as the TRX.  

This article on Fitness Myths is good to consider new ideas for fitness!  Go here Fitness Myths

Norman Doidge on Brain Plasticity

Here is a link to a great interview with Norman Doidge on brain plasticity and healing the brain.  It is long but worth the listen!  He talks about the role of Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel Method in healing the brain!  For more information about Feldenkrais in Calgary contact Susinn at 403-919-1881.  Susinn is a guild certified Feldenkrais practitioner and has studied with Anat Baniel for many years.

Why would you want Feldenkrais/ABM

You are probably wondering why you would want to do Feldenkrais Lessons or Anat Baniel Method (ABM) lessons.  The reasons are many and are very individual.  I will list some of the more common reasons people use these amazing methods:

1.  you want to be pain free
2.  you want to move better; whether it is improving your golf score or just being able to bound up the stairs with the grace and ease you had when you were younger!
3.  you want to find the calm place within you that seems to have gone far away
4.  you want to improve your thinking; we now know these methods are great ways to improve the function of your brain.  Improve your clarity, memory, and creative thinking.
5.  you want to sleep better
6.  you want to improve your mood
7.  you want to access your own ability to improve and learn
8.  you want to be the best you that you can be!

If you are in Calgary and want to discuss whether you will benefit from Feldenkrais or ABM lessons  phone Susinn 403-919-1881 or email
