The TMJ joint acts like a hinge. Connecting your jawbone to your skull. With a little cartilage in between. Your pain may be due to a variety of factors, genetics, clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxism). Signs may include pain and tenderness in your jaw or joint, aching around your ear, difficulty chewing, aching facial pain.
I have worked with numerous clients with TMJ disorder, with massage being their only relief. It is important to know that not only the jaw is worked on externally and intra-orally. All the muscles around the jaw are worked, each muscle pulls on an area of the jaw that causes pain and dysfunction.
This is a very thorough and intricate technique that I have had additional training for.
Usually a series of three, 30-minute sessions will help decrease pain and create muscle memory.
