Joe Pilates used to give this special exercise using a (clean) towel to clients who had tense necks, grinding of teeth and especially TMJ in the jaw. It seems icky to stuff a towel into your mouth but do it and you’ll be surprised at how pleasant the aftereffects are! Filmed at Vintage Pilates in West Los Angeles, CA.

    I’ll be getting my daughter to try this! She’s 18 doing important exams (A Levels in the UK) which are stressing her out & causing jaw pain along with teeth grinding. The dentist has given her a mouth guard for nighttime, but I’ll be intrigued to see if this works just as well… if not better! Fingers crossed. Thank you for sharing.
