Kristen Knecht helps people heal themselves through neuromuscular habits of the mouth and nose. Kristen earned a degree in psychology with a minor in biology, following her curiosity of what one thing was that could help improve everyone's health, she earned a second degree in dental hygiene. Continuing to seek out biological and functional healthcare practitioners and looking into ways the human body can heal itself she received training in nasal breathing, jaw growth and jaw function and is now an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist (OMT).
What is Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy?
OMT is a neuromuscular retraining of the mouth, jaw, tongue and throat muscles. You might think of it like mouth physical therapy. OMT works with all the muscles of the head, neck, mouth, and throat. When some muscles are not doing their jobs, other muscles must compensate. This leads to disfunction.
