The goals of myofunctional therapy focus on proper rest posture, nasal breathing, and a proper swallow.
We work on strength, range of motion, and coordination of the muscles of the tongue, lips, and cheeks to ensure proper function.
“OMD refers to abnormal resting labial-lingual posture of the orofacial musculature, atypical chewing and swallowing patterns, dental malocclusions, blocked nasal airways, and speech problems.” – Hanson, 1982
OMDs can manifest in a variety of ways across the lifespan. When treating OMDs, we try to get to the root cause of the issue, rather than just treating the symptoms.
|Open Mouth Posture
|Tongue Thrust Swallow
|Wake Up Tired
|Forward Head Posture
|Dark Circles Under Eyes
|Heart Shaped Tongue
If you struggle with any of these symptoms, let’s get started with a free consultation.
OMDs often require a team approach when it comes to treatment. We coordinate with many local providers who understand the importance of looking at the big picture and addressing the root cause.
We collaborate with:
Cranial Sacral Therapists
Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctors
