Myofunctional Therapy

Myofunctional therapy is a set of custom exercises for the muscles of the tongue, face, and mouth. A Myofunctional Therapist is like a physical therapist who helps you work on the muscles we use to speak, chew, swallow and breathe properly. Myofunctional therapy:
Tones muscles of the tongue and face
Helps with chewing and swallowing
Helps with sleep issues
Strengthens breathing muscles
Alleviates muscle tension in shoulders, neck, and TMJ or jaw pain
Improves CPAP efficiency
Myofunctional therapy is used before and after tongue-tie release surgery to prevent relapse. We all need to breathe and function at our best and myofunctional therapy can help improve the quality of your life at any age.
