Infant Massage is beneficial both pre and post TOTs release. The myofacsial release and soft tissue work helps to reduce restrictions in and around the mouth and facial muscles prior to revision to best ensure a full release is able to be performed. Post-op the massage helps to reduce tension in areas of the jaw to ensure it can reach its new, larger range of motion for optimal latching, chewing, sleeping, and breathing. Massage is also integral for treating the accessory muscles and symptoms that come along with TOTs such as reducing gas/constipation, correcting posture, and relaxing the nervous system. A general protocol for most beneficial results is 1-2 massage appointments prior to the revision, and once a week massages for 4-6 weeks post-revision.
