STEP 1: How to Locate the Masseter C Trigger Point #Three

The Masseter is a thick, somewhat quadrilateral muscle present in the face. It is a very important muscle that helps in chewing. It arises from the corner of the jaw bone and is inserted on the cheekbone. It has four trigger points. The first two are present near the cheekbone and the next two are present near the lower jaw. The second TrP is present over the angle of the lower jaw. This muscle is usually overworked in people who tend to clench their jaw too much in anger, stress, or worry.

STEP 2: How to Self-Release the Masseter C Trigger Point # Three

Self-releasing the Masseter is simple. Locate the muscle’s trigger point two finger widths in front of your ear, as shown in the earlier video. Place your thumb over the point, resting your finger against your forehead and lean your elbow against the wall. Hold for 30 seconds and release.

STEP 3: How to Stretch the Masseter CTrigger Point # Three

Stretching the Masseter is simple. There is a way to release and stretch the Masseter at the same time. First, locate the trigger point and place your fingers over it. Apply pressure over the trigger spots while slowly opening your mouth wide. The other, more natural way to do this is through a big, long yawn. This opens the muscle and helps release any built-up tension.
