It does help relive some of the problems I've been having like jaw pain and pressure discomfort. I've also read that tmj is set on by stomach function disorder, over eating, and it can cause tmj when your body doesn't digest well. I've been googling acupressure for two weeks cause I've been really sick dizzy and tons of trouble with my gut and diarhea and I have literally felt like my face was being punched right at my jaw. My blood pressure has been high doc says its stress but theirs also other things going on. Acupressure and acupuncture can relive these ailments but you should also be seen by a neuromuscular dentist and tell them all the ailments you are having and they will explore your jaw and things going on you will probally need to wear equipment to align your jaw.One thing I rub a lot is a pressure point thats pin sized, this pressure point is between your thumb and index finger you should feel a tender.
