Our TMJ Acupuncture and Massage focuses on addressing issues related to the jaw joint and the muscles that control its movement. It aims to alleviate pain and discomfort, promote jaw health and relieve symptoms. The treatment consists of: 1. MASSAGE TECHNIQUES: Myofascial Release: Gentle pressure is applied to release tension in the fascia (connective tissue) surrounding muscles. Trigger Point Therapy: Specific pressure points are targeted to release muscle knots and alleviate pain. Stretching: Controlled stretching of jaw and neck muscles can help improve flexibility and reduce stiffness. 2. INTRAORAL TECHNIQUES Intraoral massage for the jaw is a specialized technique that involves gently manipulating the muscles and tissues inside the mouth to alleviate jaw-related discomfort. Specifically, it targets muscles such as the pterygoid muscles, which play a crucial role in jaw movement. By applying precise pressure and stretching within the mouth, intraoral massage helps release tension in these muscles, promoting improved jaw mobility and reduced discomfort. This technique is performed wearing gloves to ensure hygiene and patient comfort, providing a direct and effective approach to addressing TMJ issues. 3. ACUPUNCTURE Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. When applied to TMJ therapy, acupuncture can help relax muscles, reduce inflammation, and enhance the body's natural pain-relieving mechanisms. Some acupuncture points are chosen for their potential to alleviate jaw-related discomfort and tension. Benefits: TMJ therapy, including massage and acupuncture, can provide several benefits for jaw health: Pain Relief: By addressing muscle tension and inflammation, these techniques can help alleviate pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders. Improved Mobility: Massage and acupuncture can help improve the range of motion in the jaw, reducing stiffness and promoting better jaw movement. Stress Reduction: Stress and anxiety can contribute to jaw clenching and grinding, exacerbating TMJ issues. Both massage and acupuncture have relaxation benefits that can help manage stress-related jaw tension. Enhanced Blood Circulation: Improved blood flow to the jaw area can aid in the healing process and reduce inflammation. Holistic Approach: TMJ therapy takes a holistic approach, considering the interconnectedness of muscles, joints, and overall body balance to address TMJ.
