Read on to learn more about intraoral massage and how it can benefit you.

What is intraoral massage?

Intraoral massage is a type of massage that is performed inside the mouth. The therapist uses their fingers, thumbs, and sometimes even their knuckles to massage the soft tissues inside the mouth. This includes the cheeks, gums, tongue and palate. Intraoral massage can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including TMJ disorders, headaches, and jaw joint pain. It can also help release tension in the muscles of the face and neck. Many people find intraoral massage very relaxing and some even say it helps improve their sense of taste.

Why has intraoral massage become so popular?

In recent years, intraoral massage has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional forms of massage. Unlike Swedish massage or deep tissue massage, which focus on the muscles and connective tissues of the body, intraoral massage focuses on the muscles and tissues of the face. Proponents of this type of massage claim that it can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boost skin elasticity, and improve circulation. Also, because it is a relatively gentle form of massage, it is often recommended for people looking for a safe, effective, and non-surgical option. As more and more people become aware of the benefits of intraoral massage, its popularity is likely to continue to grow.

Who is eligible for this type of massage?

Intraoral massage is an optimal therapy for people who have difficulty swallowing or opening their mouth widely. The therapist uses a lubricating gel to reduce friction and allow his fingers to glide over the tissues of the mouth.

Anyone who experiences pain or discomfort in their mouth, jaw, or face may be a good candidate for intraoral massage.
