Looking for a Pediatric TMJ Specialist in Richmond?


Did you know that a TMJ/TMD massage session at Attune Massage Therapy can help your child get same-day relief from TMJ and TMD symptoms? In comparison to surgery and a lifetime of jaw discomfort, TMJ massages are the most cost-effective way to relieve TMJ/TMJ pain.

Before you consider costly treatment options such as jaw surgery or night guards that cost thousands of dollars and only lasts for six months, see if you can get the relief you need by visiting the pediatric TMJ specialist in Richmond that Dentists recommend!

I am so very grateful that our dentist recommended Jana for jaw pain. I have been dealing with headaches for years and had no idea it is likely due to clenching my jaw! But Jana knew…and she is not only great at what she does but a lovely person and very responsive and professional. I feel like I’m in good hands with her and think that I might finally be on the road to relief and recovery because of her help! – Casey Hutcherson

Your Child will experience same day relief from TMD/J symptoms with extra and intra-oral soft tissue massage, joint mobilization of the neck and TMJ to improve joint mobility, postural re-training to relieve muscle tension, as well as stress management techniques.

I had my first appointment with Jana this week and I can tell she has a real passion for helping others feel the best they can. She knew right where my trouble spots were and helped so much with my TMJ in just one visit. I will definitely be going back! – Lauren Memmer

About TMJ / TMD:

TMJ disorders are medical problems related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), the joint that connects your lower jaw to your temporal bone.

TMJ disorders (also called temporomandibular disorders, or TMD) can cause pain in your child’s head, neck, jaw, or face. They may also experience problems with chewing or biting and hear popping or clicking sounds when they open and close their mouth. TMD can also be the cause of your child’s jaw locking open or shut.
