Orofacial myofunctional therapy is described as, "the study and treatment of the oral and facial muscles as they relate to speech, dentition, chewing/bolus collection, swallowing, and overall mental and physical health." -- Sandra R. Holtzman
OROFACIAL MYOFUNCTIONAL DISORDERS can include thumb or prolonged pacifier sucking habits, open mouth resting posture, lisps, tongue tie, tongue thrust, feeding difficulties, TMJ pain or popping/clicking.
The GOALS of myofunctional therapy are to establish nasal breathing, correct tongue resting posture, lip seal, and correct swallow.
The Myo Munchee is an oral device used to promote nasal breathing, improve muscles used for chewing, lip closure, and swallowing.
At Hope Integrative Therapy, we follow the E3 Model from TOTS Training® to Evaluate, Educate, and Execute.
Our therapist continues her professional development and has attended the Breathe Baby Course to support feeding, feelings, and function.
