Relaxation techniques for TMJ

I have heard that relaxation and jaw exercises can help with TMJ facial pain and headaches. Anyone know of any exercises that have worked in relieving pain?

Re: Relaxation techniques for TMJ

Those programs are commercial and I wouldn't put a lot of faith in them personally.

There is a TMJ relaxation CD by Denise Lynch that walks you through the relaxation of your head/facial muscles, neck muscles, shoulder muscles, etc... It is a bit meditative, but I used in as one of my TMJD treatment tools.

The book The TMJ Healing Plan by Cynthia Peterson has lots of chapters on the whys of TMJD issues and multiple strategies and recommendations for treatment options to explore. It was published after I'd gone through a long journey to figure out things and much of the information and many of the strategies the author includes are things I had to pay lots of money to specialists to find out. It is a very good resource to educate yourself and does include relaxation information you are looking for.
