How can a TMJ Release Massage help you?

Around 12% of individuals suffer from TMJ disorders. The TMJ is a hinge joint connecting the lower jaw and the temporal bones located on each side of your head, directly in front of the ears. When healthy, the TMJ is flexible, allowing the jaw to move freely up and down, and side to side. In turn, this allows for easy chewing, speaking and yawning. When a person has TMJ disorder, the joint is stiff and any movement can be extremely painful. The disorder can also cause pain in the neck and shoulders. A TMJ Release Massage will help to relieve the painful symptoms of TMJ disorders and get your jaw back to functioning as normal, eliminating pain, restoring jaw motion, and decreasing stress and tension.

History of TMJ Release:

TMJ, temporomandibular joint, disorders were described as early as the Ancient Egyptians. However, medicine and treatment have come a long way. In the past, procedures were much more invasive and focused on dental issues and function. Today, the focus is on chronic pain management – where the treatment, such as TMJ Release Massage, is non-invasive and involves a multidisciplinary approach.

What to expect:

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 Release 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 Release 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.

Other things you should know:

Typically, your first TMJ Release Massage appointment will last 60 minutes to allow for a more thorough assessment. If you have latex allergies, please let your therapist know in advance in the booking comments. Due to the nature of this issue, a TMJ release can cause some tenderness. Ask your therapist whether hot or cold therapy should be applied to the affected area post treatment.
