Instructor: Lauren Christman, LMT; NCBTMB #450788-08
These days, safe practice means that clients are wearing a mask...but you know how important it is to treat the structures around the TMJ.
In this webinar, we'll show how to affect intraoral structures from outside the mouth, while the client is wearing a mask. We'll also teach more advanced self-treatment techniques for clients who want to work inside their own mouths at home. Finally, we've gathered a set of foundational exercise for jaw mobility and balance. We will explore several ways to teach your clients these techniques and exercises. This way, you can adapt what you learn in the webinar to best suit your practice logistics, your client's needs and your mutual safety.
If you are able to have a family member, partner or friend join you, please have a volunteer to work on from 2:20pm - 3:00pm. You will be working on the volunteer's jaw, outside of the mask. You may do this seated or on a table depending on what is convenient for you and still have the volunteer in front of the camera. If you are unable to have a volunteer, no worries, you can work on your own jaw. We are extremely flexible for this part of the class to make things work for everyone.
Note: This class will be recorded, but available only for class members for review purposes only.
Pre-requisite: A WA state Intraoral endorsement is a requirement for LMTs to participate in this webinar. If you do not have it, prior education with intraoral (minimum of 16 hours) regardless of modality will also work.
Computer Setup and Items Needed: In this class, be in a location so that your computer can sit on something instead of being held in your lap as you will be using your hands to do self-intraoral work. Please have gloves available to work within your own mouth.
