FaceFormer® Therapie - So geht's!

FaceFormer® Therapy - Here's how it works!

Regular FaceFormer training has an effective influence on cranial nerve functions and brain performance, on pattern formation and coordination, on the tension of tissue, muscles and skin in the mouth, throat and facial regions, on body statics, body movements and sensory performance. However, causal therapies such as FaceFormer Therapy do not produce results overnight. Rather, constant practice brings about a gradual approach to the desired goal until what has been achieved is finally stabilized in the long term. This avoids ongoing dependence on stressful medications and annoying aids.

FaceFormer® training is effective

FaceFormer exercises are easy to perform and achieve quick results with little effort. The first results can often be felt after just a few days. Good development can usually be expected after about 6-10 weeks with daily training. Now stay consistently on the ball! The new movement and behavior patterns are practiced and automated until they become second nature. The exercises should be carried out for a total of six months. Then you can avoid regular use of the FaceFormer.

Perseverance is worth it

Experience has shown that FaceFormer therapy often brings about noticeably positive changes after a short period of time. In order to stabilize the success in the long term, the application must be carried out over the intended period of time. When physiological movement patterns, postures and muscle tension have finally become automatic, the therapy is complete and your perseverance will pay off!

Exercise instructions

Successful entry into FaceFormer training

Step 1 – Starting position

Placing the FaceFormer

The FaceFormer is placed in the vestibule of the mouth.

  1. The FaceFormer membrane (mouth shield) lies behind the lips and in front of the teeth (oral vestibule).
  2. The lip wedge is directed outwards.
  3. The lips lie relaxed around the lip wedge.

Place the FACEFORMER correctly

The FaceFormer is inserted into the vestibule of the mouth.


Position of the tip of the tongue

  1. The tip of the tongue rests on the roof of the mouth a few millimeters behind the upper incisors.
  2. The tip of the tongue feels a small bulge here. She doesn't touch her teeth.
  3. The position of the tip of the tongue is always maintained. It is part of the natural, correct tongue posture and can be reliably habituated.

Tongue position

Correct position of the tip of the tongue

Head posture, neck extension and nasal breathing

The head is erect and the neck stretched. This natural, correct head position is always maintained and must become a habit. It determines head balance, posture and body statics.

Lower jaw posture

The upper incisors lie in front of the lower ones.*
The lower jaw is not displaced.
When swallowing, the usual bite position must be maintained.
The lip wedge of the FaceFormer is aligned horizontally.

* Exception: If the lower jaw is moved forward, the usual position can be maintained.

Nose breathing is a must

Nasal breathing is crucial for health. FaceFormer training makes it systematic
developed.
Nose breathing has to become habitual and automatic, unconsciously and even while sleeping.

Get into the habit of always breathing through your nose.

Step 2 – Exercises

Basic exercise

  1. Press the lip wedge together firmly with your lips for 6 seconds. (Image A)
  2. Maintain lip tension.
    Bite down once with your molars and swallow once at the same time.
    Maintain the position of the tip of the tongue.
  3. Relaxation phase: release lip pressure.
    Lips enclose lip wedge without pressure.
    Teeth don't touch each other. (Picture B)

Don't forget!

Pulling exercise

  1. Press the lip wedge together firmly with your lips for 6 seconds.
    Pull the lip wedge forward with your thumb and index finger.
  2. Maintain lip tension.
    Bite down once with your molars and swallow once at the same time.
    Maintain the position of the tip of the tongue.
  3. Relaxation phase: release lip pressure.
    Lips enclose lip wedge without pressure.
    Teeth don't touch each other.

Repeat the exercise 20 times.

Step 3 – Nightly application

Your nasal breathing will noticeably improve after about 2-3 weeks of training.
From now on, the FaceFormer can also be used at night in addition to daily exercises.

Nightly application ensures

  • Nasal breathing and mouth closure
  • Negative pressure in the mouth and throat
  • Muscle and tissue strengthening
  • Stabilization of the posture and tension of the tongue, soft palate and pharynx
  • neuronal pattern formation
  • Automation of movement patterns

 

Nightly use of FACEFORMER supports nasal breathing

Using FaceFormer at night helps you get into the habit of breathing through your nose.
