Suffering from TMJ? Are you a grinder, clencher, have jaw pain, small mouth opening, suffer from headaches behind your eyes? You may have TMJ. Massage therapy can help relieve the pain and discomfort caused by TMJ. Your dentist/orthodontist will be the one to diagnose TMJ. If you are experiencing any of the above, I encourage you to talk with your dentist or orthodontist to assist in a treatment plan.
CranioSacral has been my modality of choice when addressing TMJ. In my experience TMJ does not like to be forced. Since it typically is an area that is already aggravated and painful it seems to respond better to a gentle touch, which allows the muscle to unwind and have the sense of melting.
