TMJ massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on the muscles of the head and neck to relieve pain associated with Temporomandibular disorders. Temporomandibular disorders occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and jaw movement. Many people also suffer from Bruxism, or grinding their teeth, particularly while sleeping. Temporomandibular disorders can cause a great deal of discomfort, headaches, jaw pain, and even neck pain if left untreated.
Corey Proffitt Studios Massage offers treatment for Temporomandibular disorders by focusing on the muscles of the head, neck, jaws, and also by working inside the mouth. Work inside the mouth is performed with surgical latex gloves, and provides relief to specific muscles that contribute to pain associated with this disorder. This treatment can be added to any massage at no additional cost. Simply request this treatment once you arrive for your appointment. Intraoral massage is provided exclusively by Corey Proffitt, LMT and Kara Silvestri, LMT at this time.
