Service Description

The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint of the jaw. When this is out of balance it can cause a wide range of symptoms- some of the most common ones being: Jaw pain and discomfort, clenching/grinding of the teeth, clicking/popping sensations when opening and closing the jaw, headaches, ringing of the ears (tinnitus) and earaches, neck, shoulder and back pain, dizziness and pain behind the eyes. This treatment focusses a whole body approach combining Remedial Massage (soft tissue), the gentle release of fascia and trigger areas, and acupressure points on specific jaw related areas Fascia- the interconnective 'web' of the body can get tight and 'knotted' which can cause areas of tightness and restriction in other areas of the body. By gently and slowly releasing the fascia these are released on areas specifically known to release the jaw. Trigger points, which are tender to the touch and are often the cause of referred pain, are held and released. All combined with remedial massage. The muscles of the jaw itself (Masseter, Medial and Lateral Pterygoids, Temporalis) are worked on both externally and intra-orally. This treatment is not targeted at specific muscles- rather the release of connective fascia that surrounds those muscles. The pressure used is a relaxing medium pressure in order to help facilitate the release. Oil is used for treatment on the back, arms, shoulder area and neck.
