Tight and tender jaw and sleepless nights are so exhausting to the hectic holiday season. At Red Lotus skin care salon in Beaverton, sport massage therapist Aumkara talks about TMJ and sleeplessness.
"Holiday Season challenges? Hmm chewing what to give for Holiday gifts? Is that chewing of your thoughts adding to your TMJ and loosing sleep? Upsetting your digestion and separating the useful gifts from the not? general Holiday overload? Lets start with the chewing and calming down the TMJ.
The Small Intestine meridian begins on the pinky finger and ends on chew muscles in front of the ear. If you put your pinky there on that where when you move your jaw it meets and push you will likely find a sore spot. Try testing only one side at a time. By backing off the pressure and rotating a small circle (likely counter clockwise) then pushing again the sore spot will ease. Try the other direction or just push increasing pressure as you can so the soreness subsides. Give this a bit of practice and a few minutes and your jaw will likely relax. This can also help with sleeplessness, though some minerals in a liquid may also be needed to balance the blood chemistry helping the body to relax. Also spices such as cinnamon or cardamom in warm milk can help with dissolved gas in the blood stream that can also contribute to sleeplessness.
