Meet Cynthia

Cynthia first job out of physical therapy school in 1990, she helped teach a Jaw School, Neck School & Back School for our patients.

They were empowered with tools to start identifying & addressing the root causes of their pains and problems.

About the Book

Of all the joints in your body, there are only 2 that most doctors refuse to treat and most insurance companies refuse to cover. If you guessed jaw joints, you are correct.

Those jaw joints are technically referred to as your TMJ’s and problems with them can include symptoms such as

  • Headaches
  • Painful jaw joints
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
  • Clicking or locking jaws
  • Ear pain, stuffiness, or ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Neck, shoulder, or facial pain
  • Tooth grinding or clenching, and morning jaw aches.
  • Breathing and sleep problems


Though these complaints are common, the average sufferer sees an average of 6.9 providers before getting the help they need. While there is no one-size-fits-all remedy, this book offers safe, proven tools you can begin using right away to improve your condition.

This book makes a complicated topic as fun and easy to digest as possible with stories and over 50 photos or illustrations and teaches healthy habits that are good for everyone! Plus, the PoTSBTLCSz acronym to make it easy to remember the healthy healing habits you will learn all about.
