Myofunctional therapy is a targeted series of exercises of the tongue, mouth, lips and neck muscles to help optimize oral and upper airway functions. After a detailed evaluation, we customize a therapy protocol based on your specific treatment plan. 

If you have a restricted tongue and are considering a tongue tie release procedure, it is imperative to undergo pre and post procedural therapy to retain the best long term result.

The Buteyko Breathing Method is recognized the world over! We help you to use your own breath and breathing style to control and improve many conditions. 


Asthma, COPD, stress, anxiety, allergies, high blood pressure, coughing, sleep disordered breathing, snoring, exercise endurance, sleep disturbances in children, poor school performance, bed wetting are often improved. The Buteyko method teaches you how to properly rest your tongue, breath through your nose and to reduce air volume with light breathing techniques.

Take a moment and pay attention to the position of your mouth. Are your lips slightly open? Do you feel air entering into your oral cavity? Do your shoulders rise and fall with your breath? When we think of a "mouth breather" a certain image probably comes to your mind. The truth is, if you really pay attention to the posture and position of your mouth, I bet that it is open much more than you realize. The nose is the only organ designed to intake air, warm it, filter it and deliver it to the lungs. The mouth is not designed to be a breathing organ.
