Faz's Story

My experience of recovery and discovery from a decade long health crisis has shaped my approach to treatment today. I have learned that a story is never complete and the worst thing you can do is to assume that there is only one answer. Whether it’s athletic performance or chronic illness, I have a number of assessments and tools that can help. By focusing on Oral Posture solutions, I have gained an important insight into a major cause of TMJ pain, clenching and grinding, poor breathing, digestive trouble and unrestful sleep. I have been able to recover remarkably from my saga of ong term discomfort and I hope to help you do the same.
