What is Intraoral Massage?

Click here to learn what a WA State Endorsement is.

Intraoral massage is a safe and effective manual technique that works on muscles both inside and outside the mouth, neck and throat. It is an effective treatment for patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction, clenching, grinding, painful clicking, excess jaw tension, migraines, chronic sinus problems, head injuries, whiplash, strains from orthodontia or dental surgery after effects, headaches, chronic ear congestion, tinnitus, emotional trauma and chronic face and neck pain.

Although this technique can be quite intense, it is not necessarily painful. Since it deals with muscles that are rarely touched, they respond to less pressure. It is extremely beneficial and even helps balance the upper body. Gloves are worn while working inside the mouth to release the muscles and fascia involved with chewing and jaw clenching.

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD/TMJD) is a disorder of the muscles of mastication and associated structures.

If either you have been diagnosed with TMD or have pain in the jaw, by the ears, forehead, back of the head, neck and shoulders you will benefit greatly. Many patients have been successfully treated for TMJ syndrome using Intraoral Massage Therapy, by using these specific massage techniques to the face, head, neck, jaw and oral cavity.

What is massage cupping (MC)?

Simply defined, "cupping" is a negative pressure massage. When used in conjunction with positive pressure it brings to your practice a well rounded and thorough approach. Via negative pressure, massage cupping lifts and separates adhered layers of tissue, restores blood flow, stimulates the lymphatic system, promotes deep relaxation, and facilitates healing in hypertonic tissue. Cupping facilitates myo-fascial release and removes adhesions with ease. Due to its wide application, many other therapies can greatly benefit from this technique including; physiotherapy, aromatherapy, reflexology, kinesiology, acupuncture, chiropractics, etc. MC's physical impact extends beyond that of traditional pressure massage as its pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting a deep full-tissue relaxation.


Why Massage Cupping?

This is a unique addition to your practice; the measurable results achieved are astounding and long lasting. MC is not yet widely practiced, so you would be providing a new and exciting type of bodywork to your existing client base as well as attracting new clients. This technique truly saves you time and energy. MC can be used as a supplement to your existing massage routines, an add-on to your current massage menu, or used alone. Many of your clients will become addicted to this amazing and transcending addition to your repertoire of skills and come back asking for it. Additionally, use MC for self care. Its efficiency will amaze and surprise you time after time.
