WHAT IS IT

What Is TMJ/TMD Massage

The temporomandibular joints can be found on either side of the head in front of the ears. These joints allow us to talk, chew and yawn. When one or more of these joints become inflamed or painful, the condition is called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD).

TMJD can cause over 30 painful issues involving the jaw, sinuses, eyes, head and neck. If you are experiencing pain or a clicking sound in your jaw, massage therapy can easily treat your symptoms.

How It Works

Through proper assessment of the head, neck and jaw, pain and dysfunction can be resolved or greatly improved with exercises and manual therapy techniques. Manual treatment for TMJD can involve extra-oral (outside the mouth) and intra-oral (inside the mouth) massage. For intra-oral, treatment gloves will be worn.

Other treatment modalities include soft tissue massage, joint mobilizations and myofascial techniques and therapeutic exercises.

Mobile TMJ massage in the comfort of your home with our Mobile RMT will get you the relief you deserve.
