work for some patients and there were simply no further op- tions for therapy. This encouraged him to develop a new holistic therapeutic method. The result was MaRhyThe, a practice- relevant, systemic biological therapeutic method that has a direct influence on cellular processes: “MaRhyThe achieves deeply effective relaxation, almost a resetting of neuromuscular systems, and should be used as a preventative measure by staff and dentists themselves,” stated Randoll. MaRhyThe has been tried and tested in dental medicine for many years now. “We use the masticatory apparatus to process stress. Preventative changes to the inner structure can be triggered to help relieve stress. MaRhyThe helps tense muscles reset to zero. They can relax again once congestion has been cleared,” explained Dr Hans-Christian May, a dentist and health practitioner in Munich in Germany. MaRhyThe is, therefore, perfect for preventing the development of illnesses, as it counteracts chronic degenerative processes and inflamma- tion and promotes healing. This pleasant and painless treatment does not result in any reactive responses that could cause new tension. Healing is improved, as cellular conditions have been optimised. An interdisciplinary understanding of muscular function One example of this systemic biological tendency is patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome. Success has been achieved in such patients by releasing muscular ten- sion around the cervicothoracic transition at a cellular micro level using MaRhyThe. This inter-organ and interdisciplinary understanding of muscular function is central to treating the syndrome as it explains the relationship between cellular neu- romuscular micro functions and macro movements. In his Munich-based community practice, May uses Ma- RhyThe in preparation for splint adjustments and as a comple- mentary treatment during splint therapy, among other things. To establish the static and dynamic positions of the temporoman- dibular joint, the muscles are relaxed before measurements are taken. “The muscles have to relax to allow for reliable tissue so we can take exact and reproducible measurements,” he said. The splint position should represent the relaxed muscle position from the very beginning. It then works as a kind of reminder. Many patients think that their tension, neck pain and shoulder pain are normal, according to May. By involving osteopathy and manual techniques, even long-term painful cramps and muscle tension can be rapidly improved. This muscle-relaxing therapy is accompanied by sessions based on hypnotherapy in the spirit of a holistic systemic biological concept. MaRhyThe is not just a contribution to physical therapy, but also combines dentistry and medicine to offer a preventative and curative approach for systemic biological disorders. prevention | title MaRhyThe is perfect for preventing the development of illnesses, as it counteracts chronic degenerative processes and inflammation and promotes healing.
