Is your TMJD a TMS?  (Then EFT for TMS/TMJD would help you turn things around.)
If you tend to suffer from chronic tension and have pain or illnesses, please consider looking into TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome or Tension Myoneural Syndrome, or MindBodySyndrome)  Originally proposed by John E. Sarno, MD. with his popular books ("Healing Back Pain"), TMS attempts to explain this treatable pain syndromes.

Energy Healing/Medicine Practitioners with Experience in TMJ Issues
Kelmie and Ellen have been instrumental in helping me understand TMJ issues from the perspective of Energy Medicine.  They are both practitioners/instructors of Eden Energy Medicine.  The way I have understood them (and other energy practitioners) is that, mainly the Gall Bladder Meridian and Triple Warmer Merdians blockages are what contributes to pain in the TMJ region.  If you look at the diagrams of those two meridians, you can understand why, and if you come in and get a session from me, you will also feel the release of tension from those acupressure/acupuncture points.  
Here is what Kelmie says: "Lots of things can cause meridians to get stuck. Stress, emotional upsets, EMFs... And yes, this can be true for all meridians, not just Triple Warmer & Gall Bladder, though they can be especially triggered by stress. Generally the emotions for imbalanced Gall Bladder are frustration & anger."  (I have yet to ask what emotions are the main contributor for Triple Warmer's, and I hope to continue to look into this.)  If this rings a bell to you, you tend to have frustration, upset, anger, good news is, there are ways to deal with it!
