At Primal Air we follow the treatment plan recommendations of Joy Moeller one of the premier orofacial myofunctional therapists and teachers. Her organization Academy of Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy, AOMT, teaches hundreds of practitioners a year. She still sees clients in her California practice, after thirty years of practice. We use her protocol matched to everyone’s condition. We work off the strengths and weaknesses of each individual client.
The individualized treatment plan uses a series of techniques that mildly confuses the muscles and opens the neuromuscular pathways. This makes it easy to set up new habits that feature open airways, nasal breathing, proper swallowing and surprise benefits.
The sequence starts with 8 weekly appointments, they can be virtual using telemedicine (HIPAA compliant video conferencing) for long distance clients. Then you’ll graduate to every other week, then monthly visits either in person or virtually.
Here’s the best part; if it hurts we back off! This is not a sweating, feel the burn treatment plan. Muscles of the face respond to light work. We use simple tools like balloons, chewing gum, pencils, and buttons on a string.
