Episode 212: The Soma Appliance: Balancing The Body, Calming The Nervous System with Dr. Jasmine Elmore, DDS, CSOM, PDBSc

Dr. Jasmine Elmore rejoins Hallie on the podcast almost two years after their first episode together! During this time, Jasmine has been on a journey of discovery as shared during this episode with the recent launch of her SOMA-focused practice. SOMA stands for Splint Orthopedic Myofunctional Appliance (“SOMA”) and is a dental appliance with its own unique system of adjustments and protocols. It aims to help with the TMJ, musculature, and airway. 

Hallie and Jasmine deep dive into the full body benefits of the SOMA and other integrated therapies as this holistic approach to optimal health aims to balance the body and calm the nervous system. This jam-packed episode also covers a patient-centered approach and key factors to consider when looking to increase your professional skillset (and more)!
