Jaw tension and pain are among the most common complaints I hear about in my medical practice.
In the past year, nearly every patient has had an issue with clenching their jaw, grinding their teeth, generally holding tension in that area and sometimes having outright pain.

Pterygoid massage is simple, free and effective, something you can do regularly or anytime you feel things tightening up. All you need are clean hands!
