What is Myofunctional Therapy?
Myofunctional therapy translates to myo (muscle) function therapy.
In this type of therapy, we focus on improving muscles and function in the face, mouth, and tongue. All of these muscles are used in breathing, speaking, chewing, swallowing, and facial expressions for communicating. There can be profound effects on facial growth and development by targeting specific muscles to isolate, engage and retrain. Orofacial myofunctional therapy is for the young and young at heart.
