TMJ problems? Have you needled the temporalis? I find needling this muscle,along with the pterygoids to be paramount in TMJ dysfunction management. It seems that the antagonistic action or yin and yang of these two can solve mant TMY woes. Think of the interplay of the vertical fibers of the temporailis and the vertical fibers of the medial pterygoid.
Keep on needling
