A radio show I was listening to this morning discussed the topic TMJ.
Many people who have had lots of dentistry or their jaw wired shut suffer from TMJ syndrome. The joint that connects the jawbone to the skull gets inflamed and painful, restricting regular movement. I would love to see these people get relief! With the right massage pain can be greatly relieved.
Self massage can be taught as well, to prolong the effects of massage therapy. If you suffer from a tight jaw or grinding teeth at night, try this simple tip: massage with your fingers at the muscles of the jaw, in circles, for five minutes. You know you’re in the right place if you feel the bones move move your mouth open and shut. Doing this nightly can make a world of difference!
