Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJD) Relief

Many individuals suffer from tension in and around the jaw muscle or experience severe problems chewing and talking.  Most of the time, these problems are caused by jaw pain and occlusal dysfunctionality tension in the jaw muscles.  As with most clients suffering from jaw pain, they consult a specialist which normally results in costly, ineffective treatments, extractions, splints and biting machines.

Ruqayyah’s experience as a trained Neuromuscular Therapist provides her with a very deep knowledge of the occlusal function and enabled her to develop an extensive treatment for jaw tension and occlusal problem areas.  This treatment provides effective relief of joint-related pain and involves a gentle connection of tissue of the jaw muscles, neck and shoulders. In general, the muscles in the jaw and face respond quickly to treatment.  It is very effective and simple.

Ruqayyah knows the importance of stimulating blood circulation to help adjust the bite and regain functional movement to the original state before pain. TMJD can be treated when paired with the simple methods of targeting the nerves and muscles through repositioning and relaxation jaw massage. 

Consultation and exam include orthopedic special muscle testing. Patients who have experienced a TMJ treatment often report a greater feeling of spaciousness inside the jaw, as well as less tension and grinding, as well as an increased range of motion and jaw function. After only one session, the pain will significantly diminish, and in most cases, will disappear entirely after just a few sessions. 


I am a 37 year old woman who has experienced migraines for most of my adult life. They started when I was in my mid twenties and I have tried almost everything to cure them.  In speaking with Ruqayyah one day while I was experiencing extreme pressure she talked me through how to relieve the pressure myself. It worked! I couldn’t believe it! She was on the phone directing me where to put my fingers and where to apply pressure, it was so easy. She sent me a diagram via text message for me to point out exactly where the pressure and pain was and then sent it back showing me where to put my fingers. Immediately I began to feel the pressure release, and within 20 minutes my migraine was gone. The best part was that she helped me DURING an episode where it’s painful to talk and explain, but she heard me and helped me help myself. I would absolutely go to her first for help in the future and I definitely recommend her services.
