I found out from my doctor that heating my trigger points (right by my temple), especially if the tmj is painful will help me feel better. I started doing it, and it worked, but it was a real pain to have to hold heat packs up to my face. I found this product on the internet called the IceCaddy. The IceCaddy is a Velcro sling with 2 pouches on either side to put heat/ice packs into (it even comes with 2 packs). When I lay down, I put the IceCaddy around my face and close my eyes. The IceCaddy allows me to heat my face hands free and helps me relax. I use it for about a half hour, with my eyes closed, and slowly breathing in and out. When the time is up, I feel calm and relaxed.
