FACE – Foundation for Airway and Craniofacial Excellence

FACE was founded by Julia Worrall, RN, CCRN in Toronto, Canada. Julia was a long-time critical care nurse who, for the past several years, has dedicated herself to learning as much as she can about how craniofacial structures affect airway and neurological function. She was brought to my attention by Michelle McManus, a dystonia patient whose symptoms have been mostly alleviated by a combination of orthodontic appliances and body therapy. Michelle is the founder of the Facebook forum ” Dystonia, TMJ and the connection”. This collaborative approach to treatment has also proved beneficial in treating conditions such as Tourette’s and Parkinsons.

Movement Disorders, Dystonia and Tourettes

I was recently contacted by a lady who had suffered from Dystonia for several years which had severely limited her everyday life. Fortunately she has now made a complete recovery. Her treatment was carried out by Dr André Hedger ( and involved the recognition of Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction and the misalignment of associated cranial bones. An integrated team approach is required to diagnose and treat these complex cases. Members of the British Society for the Study of Cranio-Mandibular Disorders acknowledge this and a list of other practitioners can be found on the website:
