What is Orofacial Myology?

Oralmyology is a non-invasive holistic approach that treats the whole body by working with the  muscles of the face, tongue, mouth and jaw to create symmetry, balance and proper oral habits for a lifelong healthy posture.

We focus on Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs) such as mouth breathing, tight or restricted tongue and lip ties, improper chewing and swallowing patterns, tongue thrust, lip incompetence and oral facial habits to name just a few. These OMDs are linked to migraines, TMJD, facial development, asymmetry, poor breathing and sleeping habits. 

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy works with the root cause of these disorders by using methods of neuroplasticity and behavior modification techniques.

orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and Clinical oral facial Massage

It takes a team to build long lasting results. Whether it be Myo or massage, treatment in combination with dentist, orthodontist, ENT’s, craniosacral osteopaths, therapists and chiropractors, we focus on treating the whole body the way that it should.

Heidi, I wanted to thank you again for all you did for me ... I ran and finished the L.A. Marathon - with my mouth closed!

I literally could NOT have done that if I was still breathing through my mouth.

Plus, it is amazing we were meeting virtually before virtual was cool!

Thanks for everything!

Tension pain

Clinical Oral Facial Massage is an innovative modality derived from myofascial release which opens the fascia under the tongue, relieves facial tension, balances the TMJ, opens the sinuses and helps relieve migraine headaches so you feel and look healthier.

Virtual Therapy sessionS

We offer the options to conduct our sessions virtually through platforms like Zoom or other virtual meeting apps. Exercises and assessments can be done safely and in the convenience of your own home or office. Additionally, we provide virtual assessments and consultations.

Habit breaking

Every day we consciously and unconsciously use the muscles of our face and mouth. Like any habit, there are good and bad habits. Therapy promotes healthy habits and eliminates prolonged oral habits such as nail biting, lip sucking, thumb sucking etc.
