Recently Claire completed a course in a very specialised therapy to treat a common, but frequently underdiagnosed, condition called “temporomandibular joint dysfunction”. Claire developed the condition herself and had to travel to London for treatment. She decided she’d spare other suffers the journey and completed TMJ therapy training to become one of the first practitioners in Norfolk to offer this effective form of treatment.
The experience inspired Claire to offer her full range of specialised massage therapies.
TMJD Massage Therapy
Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD)is a condition is the second most common cause of facial pain after dental disorders. Up to 20% of the population may be affected by TMJD
The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw to the skull - problems with the joint can cause a range of symptoms including:
- Facial pain
- Limited mouth Opening
- Muscle spasms and tension.
- Referred pain to the neck, shoulders and back
- Hearing problems and tinnitus
- Blurred vision
Massage therapies can make a big improvement to these symptoms by improving mouth opening, reducing pain and relieving muscle tension.
Massage treatments are adapted to individul symptoms and preferences and can include facial and intra-oral massage, passive stretching, trigger point therapy and myofascial techniques for the face, neck and shoulders.
