The Origin Story

OMT isn't a new kid on the block. It dates back to the early 20th century, evolving through the years as specialists sought ways to correct orofacial disorders. Initially focused on speech improvement and swallowing dysfunctions, it's now a holistic approach addressing various orofacial concerns.

The Science Bit

So, what's the magic formula? OMT is grounded in improving the function and tone of the facial muscles, ensuring they work in harmony. It's about retraining muscles to their correct posture and function, aiding in breathing, chewing, swallowing, and even speaking. The science? Think of it as physiotherapy but for your face and neck muscles. Studies show it can reduce symptoms of sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, and even improve orthodontic treatments' effectiveness.

Who's In?

From dental professionals to speech therapists, and even orthodontists, the circle of OMT practitioners is expanding. It's not just for kids; adults are also reaping the benefits, proving it's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.

The Real Question: Does It Work?

With a growing body of research and countless success stories, the evidence is compelling. Patients report not just aesthetic improvements but enhanced quality of life - better sleep, easier breathing, and a goodbye kiss to chronic pain. However, like any therapy, results vary, and consistency is key.
