Improving breathing and jaw function through neuromuscular retraining

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is a neuromuscular retraining of all muscles in and around the mouth and throat. 

OMT can improve: 

Jaw pain/strain

Jaw function


prepare for tongue-tie surgery

improve the results of orthodontics

nasal breathing

reduce the effects of seasonal allergies

reduce asthma

reduce snoring and even sleep apnea

please see this video for more detailed information including before and after x-rays.

See below for my own videos explaining tongue function. 




I usually work with patients one on one as each patient needs their own unique concerns addressed. 

Two or Three in a Family

Family members often have very similar jaw issues and can be seen at the same time. If you have a family member (including a child) who wants to be seen with you and can meet with me at the same time I may give a discount.
