John Corry

John Corry provides some insights into intra-oral techniques and principles in the area of TMJ dysfunction. As soft-tissue bodyworkers, we bring a unique and valuable contribution in that the mandible is suspended by soft tissue and is therefore governed by soft-tissue responses to craniomandibular function.
