TMJ Massage

Jaw Dropping

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can present in a number of ways including jaw pain, locking, clicking, headaches, ear pain/tinnitus, tooth pain and difficulty with speech/swallowing. Varying causes can include overuse, posture, clenching, grinding, stress and dental work.

A TMJ massage focuses on the muscles of the jaw, ear, head and neck. It will involve massage to the scalp, face, neck and outside of the cheek and may include intra-oral work to reach deeper tissues.  As part of a longer session, this treatment can also include all or part of a full-body massage.

Covid-19 Precautions: If intra-oral work is indicated, the patient’s mask will be removed to allow easy access. The therapist will wear a mask, vinyl gloves and face shield.
