Massage and myofascial release can help your symptoms and increase range of motion within the joint. It does this by adressing and releasing any restrictions in the fascia and musculature of the upper back, neck, head and face in particular┬áthe ones which control jaw movement. Working intraorally is also part of the treatment, which is very gentle but very effective in it’s release of tension within chewing muscles.
