A Holistic Approach to Treating TMJ

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction) can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms vary from person to person. Some Boulder residents with TMJ report difficulty swallowing, frequent headaches, or painful jaw popping. Still others have more intense symptoms like ringing in their ears, face swelling, and painful tension through the face, neck, and back.

Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ include:

Headaches
Pain in the ears
Jaw fatigue, locking, or popping
Grinding and clenching teeth
Difficulty sleeping
Difficulty swallowing
Nausea
Indications of TMJ vary from person to person because the tension generated by the condition creates a unique systemic impact within your body. This tension may be caused by work stress, personal conflict, injury, or any number of other stressors. But whatever the cause may be, the result is painful tension within your body.

The good news is that in most cases TMJ is not a permanent condition. Small changes can lead to big results!

For example, some people find mouth guards limit the damage cause when clenching and grinding teeth in the night. Others take more aggressive actions by using Botox shots to debilitate tense muscles. However, while some find these approaches helpful as a short-term solution, these bandaid approaches are more focused on treating one symptom, and do not treat the impact and stress of TMJ throughout the body.

When it comes to treating TMJ tension from head to toe, Heavenly Embrace can alleviate the systemic stress in your body resulting headaches and TMJ. I will find your unique tension points and release them, resulting a healthier you.
