I was also clinching my teeth all day every day so I had to learn the resting position of the jaw and I constantly police myself to make sure I'm not clinching.

I do heat to the side of my face for 1 minute, massage inside and out for about 30 seconds then ice for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times total.

I hope you're able to get some relief.
Yay! I'm so happy to hear this! I totally believe in the healing powers of massage
