Jaw Pain (tmj)

TMJ Jaw graphic

A tense jaw can affect many other areas of the body. This could include your neck, back, shoulders, hips and even legs. Left untreated, this stiffness could lead to conditions such as headaches, sinus pain and labyrinthitis.

What Annette says about Jaw Therapy

For jaw problems I will opt to use a Bowen Treatment because it is specific and effective, yet gentle.  Combined with the skills I have learnt through Bowen and on the O-Lab course I can tailor a bespoke treatment for each of my clients.​

 

Vertigo, Labyrinthitis, Ménière's disease and temporomandibular disorders (TMJ), are depressing and debilitating conditions, which need careful treatment. I have experience in working with them all. The treatment can be, either laying on a couch, or in a seated position, which ever works best for you.

 

Many clients opt to have regular treatments throughout the year or until they feel more comfortable, followed with an occasional treatment as they begin to notice changes within their body and or jaw.

 

Everyone is different and may experience different results

  

Did you know…. if you sleep all night with one of your hands under your upper part of your face, the jaw may move out of its natural alignment. This is often described as a slow punch to the face

Jaw Pain

It can be last thing a client thinks of when they come to see me.  I often discover this cause of pain by taking time to talk through the issue thoroughly. 

For jaw problems, I will opt to use a Bowen Treatment because it is precise and effective, yet gentle.  Combined with the skills I learnt on the O-Lab course taught by structural integration therapist and international trainer, Ron Phelan, (with expert input from Orofacial Myologist, Eva Tanner and Dr Gert Visser) I can tailor a bespoke treatment for each of my clients.

This has improved my approach to working with the jaw and is highly effective, so much so I now receive many referrals from dentists.

 

Ménière's disease and temporomandibular disorders, are depressing and debilitating conditions, which need careful treatment. I am very used to working with them both and I can offer the comfort of either a couch to lie on or in a seated position, which ever works best.

 

The jaw is used every second of the day so it works hard! Therefore, I suggest regular treatments, one to four weeks apart, until it settles to a more natural alignment. Sometimes a single treatment will work, but I will advise accordingly once I have assessed the situation.

Testimonial

"I used to be able to fit my little finger through a gap in between my upper and lower teeth, now there's no gap, my face and jaw not only feels so much better, it looks better too, and straighter. My balance has improved, and I can bite food easier now. I'm so pleased how much better everything is, with such a gentle treatment I didn't expect these results. Hopefully I won't need surgery to correct my jaw now!"
