Who Might Myofunctional Therapy Benefit?
Some of the risk factors indicating you might be able to benefit from this approach include those on the following list (please note this is not an all-inclusive listing). Interestingly, if you consume a high-sugar diet, the myofunctional therapy treatment is not going to be as effective because of your ability to focus and have strong muscles. So, if you decide to enter into a coaching relationship with a myofunctional therapist, please be sure to pay careful attention to your diet as well, as this could have a huge impact on your results.
