Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment, and that you should drink plenty of water to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

TMJ Syndrome

TMJ Syndrome is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the mandible to the skull.  The disorder and resultant dysfunction can result in significant pain and impairment.  The signs and symptoms of TMJ disorder vary in their presentation and can be very complex, they include: biting or chewing difficulty, clicking or popping, dull, aching pain in the face, earache, ringing in the ears (Tinnitus), headache, migraine, and reduced ability to open the mouth.

Factors contributing to TMJ include: Bruxism (repetitive unconscious clenching or grinding of teeth), jaw thrusting, excessive gum chewing or nail biting, size of foot bites eaten, and trauma.  Stress is often the major contributor to TMJ pain and discomfort. 
My treatment approach to TMJ uses Myofascial Release techniques to free the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, and bones of the jaw.
