myofunctional therapistHi, I’m Sarah,

My journey to becoming a myofunctional therapist started when I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene. At that point, I had no idea that I would end up calling myself a “tongue therapist”, or that I would become something of a trailblazer in an emerging field.

Since those early days, my life and career have taken some interesting turns as I’ve ventured into an area of healthcare that isn’t all that well-known or recognized by most people, or even by the majority of healthcare professionals. After I opened Faceology, my myofunctional therapy practice, it didn’t take me long to realize that most dentists, pediatricians, orthodontists, and ENTs don’t fully understand oral myofunctional therapy because most were simply never trained in this topic as part of their medical or dental education.

This is unfortunate because the health of the mouth relates so closely to the overall health of the body and to general well-being. I see this everyday working with my patients – the results of oral myofunctional therapy can literally be life-changing!

More Than Myofunctional Therapy

Over the years, I’ve seen so many patients with serious health problems including sleep apnea, severe pain and tension, and undiagnosed tongue-ties. To help these complex cases, I’ve had to expand my skills and knowledge and incorporate a number of treatment modalities into my practice. This has had a flow on effect to all my patients, and I’m very proud of the results my patients get from my therapy programs.

In addition to the unique treatment protocols and exercises that I’ve developed, I currently draw on the following modalities and techniques in my practice:

Buteyko Breathing

Wim Hof Breathing

The Functional Patterns Human Movement System

Myofacial Release

Biohacking

And I focus on much more than the mouth. I’ve developed protocols to address The Tongue-Gut Connection, the oral and gut microbiome, and I also work on posture, sleep hygiene, and nutrition.

Speaking and Teaching

I’m passionate about connecting with, and creating a powerful network of parents, doctors, and healthcare providers who are interested in changing the status quo and making a difference in the lives of children with oral and breathing health problems.

My business now encompasses more than just my myofunctional therapy practice. I’m also a speaker, writer, teacher, mentor, and advocate for the field of applied myofunctional sciences. I train dentists, hygienists, and other health professionals to practice myofunctional therapy through my MyoMentor educational institute.

If you would like to learn more about myofunctional therapy and what I do, there’s a lot of information on this website and on my YouTube channel, but if you have questions or would like to contact me personally, I’d love to hear from you.

You can also schedule a free Skype consultation – just drop me a note or give me a call.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sarah Hornsby, RDH, Myofunctional Therapist
