Addressing more than jaw pain

When muscles in the face or jaw are too tight they can refer pain that feels like jaw pain, deep joint pain, headaches, pain in the teeth, tinnitus, or sinus pressure. If you have Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction / Disorder (TMJD) a muscle imbalance is definitely part of the problem. 

In this course you'll learn how to safely get relief from your pains at home for less the the cost of an office visit with a professional.  

The course is taught by a Licensed Massage Therapist.

How do I get you there?

By doing these steps through the course you'll decrease the pain referred by your tight muscles, get your jaw to open wider and smoother, decrease clenching or grinding, and learn how to keep the pain away.

Licensed Massage Therapist

Katie Pudhorodsky

I'm the massage therapist who treats and educates the public on head, neck, & jaw pain (TMD). The dental and myofunctional community refer to me to address soft tissue pain and dysfunction of the craniofacial area. Since licensure in 2002 I’ve assisted at a massage therapy school and continuing education program both teaching neuromuscular therapy. My training in this field even included a physical therapy level class for TMD. Follow me on Instagram @help_head_pain TX LMT #104926

FAQ

  • I also have headaches, is this course good for me?

    Yes! Since many headaches are triggered by tight muscles of the face this course is great for you. You'll learn what muscles refer which headache patterns and how to massage or stretch that muscle.

  • I'm currently working with a dental team for my TMJD. Should I wait to take this course?

    Addressing tight muscles and correcting bad habits are important to setting your dental team up for success. Dentists want muscular balance (massage and stabilization as in the course) so any oral appliance can be more effective.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    You have 180 days of access, or about six months. There are two PDFs that you can download and save. The workbook contains a summery of all the techniques. The resources suggests books, products, and websites to continue learning more.
