Do you grind your teeth at night or suffer with jaw clenching or a clicking sound when you open and close your mouth? Ever tried a jaw massage?.
With this session, I begin this with lymphatic drainage on the face, draining any congestion in the cheek and chin areas. Often referred to as a TMJ massage after the joint Temporomandibular, I move to facial massage on the jaw, at the ears, at the temple and muscles in and around the jaw. This includes an intra oral massage. Using a disposable glove, I will work one muscle at a time. Always with clear communication walking you through exactly what I am doing. I will ask you to relax the jaw and open and close the mouth. Each stage checking in with you and allowing you to pause at any time. It may be a bit uncomfortable due to the build up of tension we hold here but the relief is instant. I then move to the other side of the face doing the same, working the internal muscles on the lower and upper jaw and cheek. As the jaw and neck are so closely related I will finish with massaging the neck and shoulders and head.
I will also show you some gentle techniques to do at home so you can continue to create relief in your jaw.
Without having any symptoms I love this treatment myself especially the added bonus of my radiant glow and vitality to my skin!
