Holistic Technologies TMJ and Migraine clinical trial results (published in January 2013) are important news for pregnant women seeking to avoid use of drugs during their pregnancy. The results show that users of the SleepGuard biofeedback headband were able to eliminate or substantially reduce migraines and TMJ-related pain and problems through nighttime biofeedback. This included the elimination of jaw pain, facial pain, temporomandibular joint pain, tooth pain, loose teeth, neck pain, and headaches.

The operation of the SleepGuard biofeedback headband is simple. It is worn on the head and senses EMG muscle signals from the temporalis muscles at the temples, allowing it to detect nighttime clenching. With a little bit of daytime practice, users quickly learn to respond to the quiet part of the biofeedback sound without waking up. “When the SleepGuard unit catches you clenching in sleep, it makes a sound against your forehead which you hear in both ears. The sound comes on quietly and typically within a few days of use, people are able to respond to the sound (by relaxing their jaw muscles) in their sleep, without waking up”, says Weinstein.
In her best-selling book “The Migraine Brain”, Harvard Medical School professor Carolyn Bernstein endorses the use of biofeedback as one mode of drug-free pain reducti
