TREATMENT OF TMJ
At The Sydney Myofascial Release Centre we employ effective soft tissue (muscle and fascia) techniques in the treatment of TMJ such as craniosacral therapy and myofascial release to release tension and rebalance the jaw and neck. Clients who have been experiencing temporomandibular joint pain often report significant relief from as little as five treatments at our Sydney practice.
Sydney based Chris O`Brien has been successfully treating TMJ syndrome since 2004. Holding a Diploma in Craniosacral Therapy, he has undertaken extensive training in the treatment of the temporomandibular joint from such highly esteemed schools such as the Upledger Institute and the Milne Institute.
