London-based Myofunctional Therapy

Welcome to Myo & Me! We offer Myofunctional Therapy to help you breathe easier, chew and swallow better, improve sleep quality and reduce tension across the tongue and jaw through repeatable, non-invasive exercises. We empower you to form new habits that help your mouth and face muscles work and behave in the way they should.

Conditions we treat

Mouth Breathing

Mouth breathing

Mouth breathing is a common sign of orofacial myofunctional disorders and can affect the structure of the face. One of the most important outcomes we aim for through Myofunctional Therapy is a shift from mouth to nasal breathing.

Incorrect Posture

Poor oral posture

Poor oral posture can visibly affect how the face looks and grows. Myofunctional Therapy teaches the tongue and lips to rest comfortably in the right place, promoting a healthier posture and supporting oral development.

Struggle Swallowing

Improper swallowing

We swallow 500-1000 times every day, but improper swallowing can cause dental, cosmetic and digestive problems. Myofunctional Therapy retrains the facial muscles to function correctly and eliminate poor swallowing patterns.

How Myofunctional Therapy works

You gain muscle memory by repeating the same activity many times, like when you play sports or type on a keyboard. Myofunctional therapy does this for a targeted set of oral and facial muscles. This is a gradual process and is best delivered through a course of therapy that is tailored to the individual.

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT) is a form of physical therapy. Orofacial means ‘of the mouth and face’, while Myofunctional means ‘muscle function’. Myofunctional therapy reteaches your orofacial muscles – the muscles of your head and neck area – how they should work and behave, to correct any bad habits that have formed.

Myofunctional Therapy can help you achieve

Nose Breathing

Nasal breathing, day and night

Proper resting position of the tongue in the mouth

A closed mouth/lip seal at rest and while chewing

A correct swallowing pattern

Benefits of Myofunctional Therapy

We work with patients to see significant improvements such as:

  • A feeling of ‘easier’ overall breathing
  • A reduction in the severity of sleep-disordered breathing
  • Better chewing and swallowing
  • Increased range of motion in the tongue and jaw
  • Less tension and improved posture

Patients are far more likely to achieve these if there’s full commitment to completing the exercises during Myofunctional Therapy.

Our treatments

We treat adults and children from 2 years old. All of our services are designed to put you – the whole you – first and are tailored to your individual needs. We believe in making therapy enjoyable, accessible, and manageable to drive successful outcomes for our patients.

Holistic patient care

Myofunctional Therapy is often delivered in collaboration with other healthcare professionals including orthodontists, ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctors, and osteopaths to maximise patient outcomes. Myo & Me has a network of specialists in these areas that are equally passionate about delivering a holistic approach to patient care.
