Our face-to-face meetings are currently unable to take place due to Covid 19 pandemic.
We are keeping in touch with members and signposting to other zoom webinars including those that other Local Support Groups are arranging that members may be interested in joining.
We hope that when meetings can recommence the speakers who had been booked will be willing to offer a talk in our diary schedule.

What is TMJ Therapy®?
The World Health Organisation estimates that 1 in 4 people suffer with TMJ. However many people have this condition without knowing it. Symptoms are wide and varied. Sufferers often struggle with receiving a definitive diagnosis. Some suffer for many years without hope. Medical intervention is often expensive and invasive with low success rates.
In 2000, after qualifying in massage, and with almost 20 years experience as a dental professional, Tracey Kiernan combined her knowledge and experience to create her unique TMJ Therapy® protocol.
Treating clients on referral from her dental surgeon, Tracey developed and refined her work over years of clinical practice. In 2005 she wrote her first 1 day introductory training course and the rest as they say is history.
Since then, her highly effective treatment protocol has been taught to hundreds of therapists in the UK, Ireland, Europe, USA and Australia who are getting people out of pain and restriction in 1-6 treatments.
This gentle, yet highly effective approach has been helping people for almost 20 years.
The protocol is made up of a unique blend of bodywork techniques, developed by Tracey herself in clinical practice. Come along and learn why the TMJ is one of the most unique joints in the body, how the balance of this complex joint affects everything including the pelvis even down to the feet, and what we as massage therapists can do to help.
