Jaw & TMJ Treatment

Jaw massage for TMJ

Does your jaw click, or does your jaw lock? Do you clench or grind your teeth when you concentrate, or at night? Do you wear a night guard? Do you have headaches, migraine, a sore neck, back pain, or worn teeth?

Massaging your head, face, neck, jaw, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can relieve these symptoms. The muscles in these areas can get tense and develop trigger points, leaving you with a lot of aches, even with headache, earache, facial pain, and neck pain.

Massage will loosen up the tension, leaving your face looking softer, your head feeling better, and your body moving more comfortably. It can even improve sports performance, leave you feeling more relaxed, and save your teeth from wear.

Other helpful techniques are craniosacral therapy, a gentle technique for working with jaw pain; and contemporary acupuncture, done on your external jaw muscles. Each of these can have great results for releasing tense muscles.
