You! Did you knew that a short muscle in the ankle can cause a severe “tennis elbow”. Well, besides a direct connection of a muscle to bone you can witness a thousand options to solve a headache by realising the neck muscles. As you now know, everything is connected!. Today we will talk about the hearing sense. In case you hear bells/knocks/ squeeks you might have a strained muscle. Might, please consult your therapist.
The 3 muscles we will talk about today are the Temporalis, first picture marked in blue. Sternocleidomastoid, second picture marked in blue. and the Auricularis third picture, marked in blue. Temporalis is the muscle on the upper side of your head. It mostly incharge of the jaw but still connected to the ears area. Noticed the points that symbolize trigger points. SCM, AKA Sternocleidomastoid. One of my favorite muscles. 2 inferior heads from the sternum and clavicle and connected under the ears. In the bottom part of the skull. Everytime after I went to festivals I ended up with “blocked ears” massaging this muscle helped me every single time. Make sure you try to open the TP equally between both heads and both sides. Less but not least Auricularis. Very small and hard to find. In the moment you find it you can automatically feel your ears “get open”. How, why, who, when, for what everything is connected, I don’t know. I do know every therapist have to think outside the box!
