Best Massage For TMJ


What Massage Is Best For TMJ?

The best massage for TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) depends on the individual, as everyone will experience different symptoms. Massage therapy for TMJ can include a variety of techniques, such as myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and trigger point therapy, to help alleviate pain and tension in the jaw area.

How Do You Self Release Your TMJ?

Selfreleasing TMJ is a process that can help improve your jaw‘s range of motion and relieve pain. To selfrelease your TMJ, you can try gently massaging the muscles in your jaw, neck, and head. You can also use a warm compress to relax the muscles in your jaw. Additionally, you can hold your jaw in different positions to stretch and release the tension in the muscles. Finally, if you have a severely tight jaw, you can try splinting or wearing a mouthguard to help relax your jaw muscles.

The Best Self Care Tools For TMJ:

Where Is The Pressure Point For TMJ?

One of the most commonly used acupoints for treating pain associated with TMJ  is the Stomach 6 (ST6). It is located on the jaw bone, at the angle of the jaw below the ear. It is often used in conjunction with other acupoints in order to maximize the therapeutic effect, however, massaging all around the area of the angle of the jaw with small circular motions can bring relief to TMJ symptoms all on its own. Other muscles run up the side of the head, and even massage inside the jaw can be helpful for releasing this tension.

How Do You Give A TMJ Massage?

Giving a TMJ massage is a great way to help relieve tension in the jaw and facial muscles. Start by having the person relax and close their eyes. Place your hands on either side of the jaw near the joint, and use gentle pressure to massage the area. Slowly move your fingers in a circular motion, gradually increasing the pressure and speed. Make sure to keep your movements slow and consistent. You can also use your thumbs to massage the jaw muscles, working from the back of the jaw up to the temples. By doing this regularly, you can help reduce tension and improve range of motion in the jaw.

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!
