Myofunctional Therapy Services in Austin, TX

I live and work locally in the Bee Cave area, and am thrilled to treat the surrounding areas.  My philosophy in treating individuals with Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders, is to utilize a TEAM approach.  Often the assistance of other healthcare professionals are needed to achieve the most out of your therapy.  I work and refer out to many local practitioners such as ENT’s, Allergists, IBCLC’s, Body Workers, Orthodontists, Oral Surgeons, Sleep Physicians, and Speech Language Pathologists, to help you achieve the best long term results.

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy:

Initial Consultation and Assessment              60 minutes

This includes the initial exam, measurements, photos, health, injury, sleep and pain history.  Posture, breathing, swallowing, and speech analysis, and documentation of intra & extra oral findings.

 

Weekly Sessions                                                       30 minutes

We measure your progress, give new exercises, fine tune or adjust if needed, and motivate!

Buteyko Breathing Program:

Essential for anyone with asthma, Austin allergies, mild to moderate sleep apnea, snoring, or those who are mouth breathers.

**NOTE: A very detailed health history will need to be completed prior to this program.  If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, a copy of your results will be needed prior to therapy.  Often times medications will need to be adjusted (lowered) by your physician with the progression of this program.

  • 4 weeks of 30 minute sessions
