Movement Essentials: Optimizing Airway Growth, Development and Function

Course Description

Dr. Mary Bourke, Chiropractor, owner and creator of Myomunchee, will be discussing how movement patterns in the body are essential for airway growth, function and proper oral rest posture, how our environment shapes these movements and functions and how these movements differ from volitional exercise​.
