In today’s episode, we talk about jaw tension, the different reasons that might cause it, and how to release it. Then, as an intro to jaw release, I will share some exploratory exercises to help relax the jaw, which is one of our main articulators. 

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

– The possible reasons why you are experiencing jaw tension, and the benefits of learning to release it

– The link between jaw tension and how we’ve been conditioned throughout our lives

– The role of awareness in releasing jaw tension

– How we can massage the tension out of our jaw

Releasing jaw tension will help us reach higher volume, extra vocal variety, and clearer speech with minimal effort. It also helps with anxiety, as it gives us a sense of mental release. In some cases, it can also help to stop teeth grinding and jaw clicking.
