About TMJD

TMJD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder. It’s a mouthful so we just call it TMJD for short.

TMJ diseases and disorders are a complex set of conditions that cause issues in the area of the joint and associated muscles and/or problems using the jaw. TMJ diseases and disorders can affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, and even breathe.

Myofascial pain is the most common type of TMJ disorder and is caused by muscle tension and trigger points in the jaw, face, neck and shoulder muscles. This causes pain, stiffness, and limited movement in the jaw, as well as referred facial pain.

You may have been recommended expensive and painful dental surgery (which has a very limited success rate), mouthguards or splints (which can make the issue worse) or you may have just been suffering in silence, not knowing what to do about it.

Do you suffer from:

FOUNDER

Bec Pawsey

My interest in TMJ Therapy arose from my years as a Remedial Massage Therapist and having clients present with all sorts of jaw and facial pain. Not only this, but I am a sufferer myself, having been teeth clencher for many years and developing my own TMJ problems.

As this was only touched on briefly in my studies as an RMT, I went looking for further training to not only be able to help myself but also my clients.

Thankfully I was able to find a specialist TMJ training provider who came from 20 years of dental experience, followed by a further 20

years in the massage industry. Together with combined industry knowledge of TMJ disorders, advanced training in TMJD was born.

I am so excited to be able to pass on the knowledge that I am learning, and to be able to help others, who, like me, need a solution to their jaw and facial pain! We’re in this together!

Yes, relief is possible .

There is a solution that does not require major surgery or expensive and annoying mouthguards.

The treatment is gentle, relaxing, and gets to the root cause of the problem.

It all starts with an assessment of all the soft tissues including the muscles and fascia which have an effect on the TMJ, to determine the root cause of pain and disfunction.

The treatment includes intra-oral manipulation of the soft tissues as well as extra-oral work to the head, neck and shoulders.

So am I recommending you need continuing and ongoing expensive treatments? NOT AT ALL

TMJ Therapy includes guided exercises to perform at home to improve function and reduce and even eliminate jaw pain for good!

 

TMJ has an added bonus

You’ll not only start to relieve your jaw and face pain but you’ll also improve your appearance.

As we age, our fascia, muscles and tissues change. The fascia becomes ridged, resulting in wrinkles. The muscles lose tone, resulting in drooping, and our collagen depletes causing a lack of suppleness.

TMJ Therapy works directly with all of these areas, lifting the muscles, smoothing the fascia, and promoting natural collagen production at the cellular level. Not to mention, the massage promotes blood and lymphatic circulation, increasing the supply of nutrients to the cells for radiant skin and a contoured, de-puffed look.

Jenifer Turner

Thanks Bec, I had no idea why i had teeth pain. After a visit to my dentist who said my teeth are fine and that I was probably grinding or clenching. He then recommended i see you for my pain. Amazing the way you explained everthing in simple terms and the facial work and exercise program have helped to relieve me of my immediate and ongoing pain.
