Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is exercise based to strengthen and tone muscles that are weak. During a full evaluation clients function of their tongue and muscles around the lips and cheeks engage. Identifying areas that are in need of correction in order to eliminate compensatory habits that are unhealthy and unnatural affecting overall health. When there are muscles are hypotonic (low tone) from not being engaged how they are made, compensation habits are developed. That is why mouth breathing gives you a long, flat face, cheeks need to be engaged, lips need to be sealed to define jaw line.
My program is developed based on your individual needs. The exercises may seem silly but each one builds on the next. Improving strength and tone in muscles daily is crucial for best results. Dedication from my clients is key to their success. There is no magic appliance that can do the job. Re-patterning muscle memory and creating new healthy patterns will give benefits to my clients.
Let's get personal, for myself, I was tired during the day, congested in the morning, (from mouth breathing and snoring), dry mouth, dark circles around my eyes, and waking up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. This is no longer my state of health!! Thanks to re-training my facial muscles to engage correctly I sleep soundly until my alarm wakes me in the morning. I no longer get up in the middle of the night or have congestion in the morning. The dark circles around my eyes have cleared, and the best part my facial muscles have improved!!
