"well to be fare. I haven't seen that dvd so? All I'm saying is if there are trigger points present. Whatever therapy you are doing , would have to make those trigger points go away in order to really help the client. Hmm. That's just…"

Therese Schwartz replied to Kendra Wien's discussion Question on TMJ technique
"No, I haven't either and I wouldn't recommend it.  Anything you do with the TMJ needs to be gentle and careful.  You are correct that it's a sensitive area!  Not only are you dealing with the Trigeminal Nerve but also…"

Chantel Martin replied to Kendra Wien's discussion Question on TMJ technique
"No, I most certainly haven't. To be quite honest, that sounds rather dangerous to me, because of the detail work with the small muscles and the sensitivity of the face. When I learned TMJ work, we used gloves, and worked the area with our hands…"
