Intend to do more for your TMJ, however do not want to stick your finger in your mouth every day? Try working with the SCM, that large muscular tissue on either side of the front of your neck. It attaches best alongside the temporomandibular joint, and also it's often involved in jaw discomfort.

The most informative 10 minutes I’ve ever had. Already feel the release of
constant tension in my jaw. Thank you!

The right side of my face has been hard rock for years, I’ve done the
massage for 2 days and it feels almost back to normal and soft! I did apply
too much pressure on the lymph nodes and they hurt :(

    I found that using Arnica oil or cream helped me a lot with my jaw
    stiffness as well as excercising my jaw.

My jaw has clicked when I open my mouth for the past 3.5 years… and after
doing that massage, it has stopped (at least temporarily). I’ll be doing
this everyday. AWESOME. THANK YOU.

Alexander technique for posture is recommended. Does anyone hear spinal
fluid occasionally in the morning rushing?

Mr0erick0 April 26, 2015 7:32:19

Omg… i can finally start opening my jaw straight down…

Do you also get pain like on the little inner bone above the eye? Cause
that bone and my nose bones always hurt the most along with my jaw

Thank you so much for posting these videos. They have really helped me with
my jaw pain.

Thank you for your video. The self massage help me very much. I just do it
for a few days and there is now almost no sound in my jaw joint anymore.
It´s also very relaxing and it´s releasing all the tension in my face and
head. I am always surprised how simple things make a big change in my life.

i’ll take a massage from this dude, sure!

I just tried this video out of recommendation from my chiropractor brother
and my ear pain has been horrific with the jaw pain coming in as a close
second for the last week. Right after your two TMJ videos my ear pain is
gone. Kind of scared of hurting my lymph nodes though. :/ Thanks!

    +joshua Williams Glad to hear you got relief! As for your lymph nodes, be
    gentle and keep your pressure angled (instead of pressing straight in) and
    they should be happy. Feel free to lighten up if you feel a swollen or
    tender node!

Very nice videos. I currently have clicking, popping every morning. Now it
seems to be a habit? I am not sure but it pops on the right pretty much
every time I open my mouth. I have big problems with my neck and shoulders
which I am getting treatment for soon so I know it is neck/shoulder
related. Your second exercise was interesting and I definitely felt more
pain doing that one. My question to you is this. Doing these exercises I am
guessing the popping will still happen for a while so roughly how long
would it take for the popping to stop if doing these every day? Not really
an answer to this I guess, but thank you for your videos, they are great!

    Body-Mind Conspiracy February 6, 2016 23:58:12

    +David Kado Hi David, it’s hard to say how long it will take for the
    popping to stop. My somewhat informed opinion is that this phenomenon
    lessens as the overall tension in the area decreases. In other words, if
    you can get the jaw muscles to chill out, the joint itself will follow. If
    your symptoms persist or worsen, definitely consult a doctor.

    By the way, if you find yourself “testing” your jaw clicking by causing it
    to happen needlessly throughout the day, do your best to stop. The name of
    the game is inflammation, and any unnecessary distress will only worsen the
    problem.

    Be gentle with these exercises, and best of luck!

Amazing-thank you so much for these videos! I experienced immediate relief.
Can I ask where are you located? Do you offer massage services?

This seems to relieve my tinnitus immediately. Thank you!

Hi there, thanks for the videos! I briefly went to a physiotherapist for my
TMJ but I want to start doing self-massages to cut down on expenses. About
2 years ago I had symptoms such as my jaw popping but now it is completely
locked and I can never un-lock or pop it any more. I still have pain and
can’t open my mouth very wide. Do you think these self-massages would be
effective for me still?

    Body-Mind Conspiracy April 19, 2016 17:38:20

    +Daniella Aguanno Hi Daniella, sorry for the delay in getting back to you!
    I do think they would help, as long as you’re gentle and err on the side of
    caution. A locked jaw is usually a high-tension environment; if we can get
    the tension to reduce, the disc in the TMJ can slowly start to resume its
    normal function (sliding as you use your jaw, rather than getting pulled
    out of place and creating that “locked” situation). Try some gentle jaw
    massage twice a day (if you do the version where you open your jaw, only
    move a few millimeters), try a 10 minute application of an ice pack covered
    with a towel once per day, and avoid testing/stretching the area.

    One problem I had, and that I see in many people who have TMJ issues, is
    constant “testing” to see if it still hurts or pops. The same with constant
    poking and prodding. Instead, try to rest the area, give it slow gentle
    massage just once or twice a day, and see if ice reduces your pain. If you
    don’t see any improvement in a week, discontinue. If the pain/dysfunction
    stays the same or worsens, please keep pursuing medical treatment. Best of
    luck!
