Sleep apnea is a severe threat to your health. Apnea occurs when the tongue and soft palate block off the majority your airway while you are sleeping. We can help you to open your airway back up and BREATHE!
Myofunctional Therapy can help to correct or relieve many cases of sleep apnea once we identify the cause of your apnea. If it is loss of muscle tone we help to design a customized plan to tone the muscles in your head and neck that are contributing to your apnea. If there are other structural reasons for your apnea, we can help you identify these as well and offer helps if therapy alone is not enough for you.
You may have sleep apnea if you:
Are drowsy in the afternoon. Wake with a dry mouth.
Fall asleep easily when you sit. Wake up tired.
Feel emotionally short fused. Are gaining weight easily.
