Let that jaw go!

The American jaw is nearly always tight and too far forward. Some exercises that can help loosen it are:
1. Grit your teeth to find the location of the masseter, the large chewing and support muscle for the mandible (jaw). Relax the jaw. Using the point of a knuckle, press into the masseter until the ache subsides. Continue daily.
2. Shift the jaw side-to-side as well as backward (never forward).
3. Do fish pops with your lips.
4. Say “fa fa fa fa fa”.
