We provide Myofunctional therapy, Buteyko Breathing, tongue tie, and tongue thrust support in a non-invasive, holistic, approach to improve quality of life. We assist in collaborative treatment of: mouth breathing, tongue thrust support and screening for tongue tie and lip tie for all ages, C-PAP alternatives, TMJ pain, frequent headaches, and facial pain. Our mission is to provide individualized therapy with care and love in a supportive setting.
All of our muscles in our face and mouth serve a purpose. They allow us to speak, eat, breathe, smile, and even kiss! Our muscles serve as guidance for growth of our face, mouth, and airway. Ideal growth and function of these muscles allow us to have a big healthy smile, wide and open sinuses, and nostrils to breathe and feel our best. Overtime, a disordered pattern of function of one or some of our orofacial muscles can lead to ill wanted adaptations (tongue thrust). This would be a diagnosed Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder.
An Orofacial Myologist, or also known as a Myofunctional Therapist is trained to diagnose each individual’s needs and disorders using Myofunctional Therapy. We use neuromuscular exercises to repattern the lips, tongue, and facial muscles to function and stay in their proper place. We use positive reinforcement and fun to help children and adults break dysfunctional habits. This can and may include finger, thumb, pacifier, or blanket sucking. This can be done at any age, but earlier treatment proves for better outcomes.
