Oh, my aching tooth! Cavities, root canals, inflamed gums, pulled teeth are obviously related to your teeth. But did you know that joint troubles, emotional issues, etc may also be due to tooth problems?
According to Traditional Chinese medicine, each tooth is related to a meridian, cranial & facial nerves. If you have a problem with your health whether physical or mental, it can impact your teeth.
T was my case study for the Teeth Reflex Therapy course from The International Institute of Reflex Therapy. He had several teeth that had probable cavities and areas where his gums were receding along with some tightness in his jaw.
In T's case, 2 of the 3 problem teeth were in the same meridian so I used that information when setting up his tailored plan. Working over 10 weeks on both his face and feet yielded positive results. T not only enjoyed the work done especially the release of tension he felt in his face but noticed less tooth sensitivity and he felt that the receding gum areas actually improved.
