Massage for TMJ Dysfunction | June 20, 2018

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (Part of NIH): TMJ Dysfunction (TMJD) is the second most commonly occurring musculoskeletal condition resulting in pain and disability preceded only by chronic low back pain. NIH estimates that 5 to 12% of the population suffers from TMJD.
After completing this course each participant will be able to identify the major muscles involved in TM joint movement, better understand the causes of TMJ pain, and apply specific Swedish techniques to help reduce TMJ pain. 

- Melissa Cope, LMBT | NCBTMB Provider# 451901-12

Note: This course covers introductory-level TMJD work.

"Melissa and her space are very welcoming and she is a very knowledgeable, talented and experienced massage therapist. As an instructor she exceeded my expectations.  She is professional, on-time, sticks to the syllabus- yet always willing to explain further or repeat something for her students to see again, very approachable, funny and made learning the material fun.  The
course content in Melissa's classes is undoubtedly helpful in furthering my massage career, easy to read and understand, and efficiently laid out.” -Emily, LMBT

  • WHAT TO BRING : Set of sheets, face cradle cover and blanket if you get cold. Oil or lotion suitable for work on the face.
