THE BENEFITS OF INTRA-ORAL ADVANCED MASSAGE
JAW TENSION & STRAIN Having your jaw massaged by an advanced licensed therapist helps increase blood flow and reduce muscle tightness. You can determine a tight jaw by opening and closing your mouth slowly while turning your head. This is the area where the temporomandibular joints are located which are typically to blame for most jaw pain.
What is the source of jaw strain?

Tightness in the jaw can result from stress, anxiety, inflammation, or injury. Overexerting the jaw — by chewing too much, for example — can also cause muscle tightness. The surrounding muscles control movements, such as opening and closing the mouth, chewing, and yawning.

MIGRANES & INJURIES Your jaw muscles tighten when you grind or clench your teeth – or do things such as chew gum. The pain from your jaw created by the clenching then travels to other places in the skull, causing headaches or, in severe cases, migraines. You may also experience toothaches, earaches or shoulder pain.
Jaws to blame for migranes?

Although a migraine is severe to moderate pain that you feel at the top or side of your head, the trouble may actually start at the bottom of your skull. Your jaw is hinged to your skull. Your jaw allows you to talk, chew and yawn. But the joint’s supporting muscles also can be the source of your migraines, says Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine.

GRINDING TEETH If you notice that you clench or grind during the day, position the tip of your tongue between your teeth. This practice trains your jaw muscles to relax. Relaxing your jaw muscles with our Intra-Oral Massage can ease pain and stop the progression of damage grinding causes.
What causes teeth grinding?

Although teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it often occurs during sleep and is more likely caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth. It can also be caused by a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT Intraoral massage is an effective treatment for clients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction, headaches or excess jaw tension. Latex-free gloves are worn while working inside the mouth to release the muscles and fascia involved with chewing and jaw clenching. This modality is used in conjunction with massage techniques for the face, scalp and neck muscles that affect jaw alignment and tension.
Common symptoms of TMJ.

Common symptoms in TMJ dysfunction that can be helped by massage include pain with opening and closing, popping and clicking of the jaw joint, migraines and chronic headaches, bruxism, chronic tension due to repetitive oral habits (ie: lip/cheek biting), ringing or fullness in the ears, muscle imbalances caused by prolonged dental treatment, unexplained pain in upper teeth, and whiplash injuries.

INTRA-ORAL ADVANCED MASSAGE IS A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR TREATMENT
An intraoral massage is a massage that focuses on the muscles both inside and outside of the mouth and jaw.

This is a treatment targeted towards people who are experiencing headaches, jaw tension, and TMJ disorder. Before you begin your session your therapist will ask about your treatment goals and any discomfort that you are currently experiencing. Your therapist will use disposable medical gloves while working inside of your mouth. The massage will focus on releasing tension in the muscles involved in moving and clenching your jaw, as well as other muscles around your face and neck.
