  • Our Program

Orofacial Myofunctional Program

Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy is an individualized neuromuscular re-education program that involves re-patterning of the oral and facial muscles, to eliminate adaptive, harmful oral habits causing muscular concern.  Successful myofunctional therapy is a partnership between the therapist, the client and client’s parent (if applicable), dedicated clients can achieve incredible results from their therapy.  Your individualized myofunctional exercise program requires a considerable time commitment that is necessary to achieve effectiveness, successful therapy is very much dependent upon the client’s compliance and maintenance at home in addition to participation in office therapy.

The number of therapy sessions varies based on every child’s individual needs. Generally, sessions are every week or every other week and can take between 3 to 12 months from start to finish.

NY Mobile Myo provides therapy primarily at our office location at 1528 Columbia Turnpike Suite 101 in Castleton, just outside of Albany, NY. In-home therapy sessions are also available. Travel fees will apply.
