Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.
Little space separates the ear canal and back of the TM joint. Ear pulls are a typical part of my treatment for TMJ disorders. Give it a try!

If no book/vid... then who you might know that offers classes? I know you have something going on in your neck of the woods. Do you have a link to anyone who provides seminars in the Texas or California regions?
pueppi wrote:JasonE, thanks for taking so much time to write such a well thought out post. It is really too bad that I am only most familiar with PNF stretching (proprioceptive muscular facilitation). I'd like to do some active study regarding the PR in the future.
As a side note, if someone has a few thoughts off the top of their head regarding any similarities or differences between PNF & Positional Release, that may be helpful. I apologize that I don't personally have the time to dedicate to some nice research in this area, right now. However, I'll attach this to my list of things to do, and get back to it in the future, when I can.
