If you are experiencing irritation, pain, stiffness or tenderness in your jaw area, difficulty eating or talking, earaches, hearing problems or dizziness, or have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder, a TMJ Massage is the right service for you.
Appointments are 45 minutes or 60 minutes. Your treatment will begin with a short one-on-one assessment to measure your range of motion and strength. Your therapist will also ask you questions regarding your condition, pain levels, medical history, and lifestyle. This is your opportunity to point out what areas you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have.
During the treatment, the therapist will work with gloved hands on the inside and the outside of your mouth to access your TMJ and release the inner workings of the jaw. In TMJ Massage, your therapist will use a technique called Myofascial Release (MFR). MFR is a form of massage that involves the application of sustained compression over trigger points in your face. Your individual treatment plan will be determined by what you present both verbally and what is ascertained from palpating your soft tissues. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat as needed.
