Welcome to The Post Graduate Diploma in TMJ Therapy®
The World Health Organisation postulated that 1 in 4 people suffer from TMJ, head and neck pain, with conventional treatment having little or no effect In 2002 after almost 20 years as a dental nurse, Tracey Kiernan combined her extensive experience of working with TMJ patients with her training as a clinical massage therapist to create an effective protocol for getting people out of pain and restriction in less than 6 treatments.
In 2007 she created the ﬁrst TMJ course which has been taught to hundreds of therapists across the UK, who are all achieving astounding results with this difﬁcult problem. These unique skills will help you achieve results with patients who have often suffered for years with little hope of recovery The course has been constantly updated and improved as Tracey’s specialist work on this subject has evolved over the last 17 years. Building on the success of the original one day training, this unique diploma is composed of 3 x 2 day modules, plus home study. This course will give you a range of skills to combat this common and debilitating condition, build your conﬁdence and grow your practice.
