Massage therapy can treat painful conditions as well as aid in stress and anxiety management. Massage can be performed with the patient clothed or undressed using sheets and blankets for comfort, warmth and safety.
Touch-based techniques are applied to the body, slowly, mindfully, and with consent.
MASSAGE THERAPY FOR TMJD
TMJD is a painful condition involving the paired joints of the jaw. With sensitivity, Jennifer assesses and treats the soft tissues of the jaw to restore normal movement and decrease pain. Treatment includes the upper back, shoulders, neck, head and inside the mouth. In addition to manual therapy, Jen teaches the patient to perform self-massage on the jaw and develop movement practices to normalize jaw movement and stability.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT
YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Your first appointment will be scheduled for 90 minutes. This time frame allows you to arrive at the appointed time and fill out the paperwork and allows Jen to conduct a thorough interview, perform an assessment, collect consent and develop a treatment plan for your care that works for you.
Once this is complete the remainder, usually 40-50 minutes, will be your massage. Upon completion of your appointment, you will receive your receipt of payment which can be submitted for insurance purposes.
FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS
All treatments after the first will be scheduled based on the treatment plan you will develop together. A treatment schedule that meets your goals will be found so you can continue to live your life with greater ease. This may mean continued care, based on your lifestyle and needs, or a complete end to treatment should your complaint be resolved.
