Myofunctional therapy is an exercise-based therapy. Think of it like physical therapy, only for the muscles of the mouth, tongue and face. The exercises are designed specifically to train proper breathing, speaking, chewing and swallowing. Believe it or not, improper patterns can lead to a host of health problems and conditions including:
- Sleep Apnea
- Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome
- Orthodontic relapse
- TMJ pain
- Headaches, neck pain and other facial pains
- Systemic conditions including heart problems, high blood pressure, foggy brain, memory problems, aches and pains, and more.
One of the main goals of myofunctional therapy is proper breathing. Better breathing will improve a whole host of health conditions. Myofunctional therapy is 100% safe, non-surgical treatment designed to help you be a better version of yourself. There are no downsides to breathing and swallowing better!
