What is TMJ Massage?

Massage focused on your TMJ (temporomandibular joint).  It will consist of working the entire side of your face, from the bottom of your jaw up to your crown, as well as around your jaw, into your neck, and even inside your mouth! (Don’t worry; we use gloves!) We try to address as much of the joints and any muscle that affects the joints that we can.

Why would I need it?

This specialization in massage focuses on dysfunctions of the jaw joints and the muscles associated with the jaw and upper neck. The jaw is a very complex system of joints and muscles, which leaves it vulnerable to potential injury or dysfunction.

What can I expect?

Because the jaw is a relatively small area of your body, we can typically address the major concerns in a half hour session; however, we do encourage at least an occasional hour to address possible contributing factors, such as shoulders, back, and even hip tension. (Yes! Your glutes can affect your jaw! If you clench your teeth, you clench your butt!) Ultimately, it’s up to you and we will do what you need for your jaw health.
