What is Myofunctional Therapy?

Myofunctional therapy is the neuromuscular  repatterining, coordination and rebalancing of the oral and facial muscles. Therapy includes facial and tongue exercises and behavior modification techniques to promote proper tongue and lip position, improved breathing, chewing, and swallowing. A Certified Orofacial Myologist  is able to successfully treat an Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder (OMD) to ensure that the patient’s needs are addressed and handled appropriately. Put your family’s health in experienced hands for a better,  healthier lifestyle.
