How is intraoral massage performed?

Intraoral massage is done lying face up (supine) on the table. Gloves are worn by the massage therapist when working inside the mouth for sanitation purposes. Client can still use their hands, or more specifically their fingers, to express levels of intensity by giving a rating of 1-5. This still allows communication of the client and the therapist when performing intraoral work. These muscles can be sensitive, but just like any other bodywork the therapist can adjust the pressure to make sure the client is comfortable.
