😛 Tongue resting posture influences proper orofacial growth and muscle balance.
😛 Tongue posture can affect the entire body resulting in overall physical and mental health!
😛 Correct tongue posture= entire tongue lightly suctioned to the roof of your mouth.. while resting, sleeping, and swallowing.
Your tongue influences the shape of the roof of your mouth (which also happens to be the floor of your nasal cavity!) A tongue that rests low due to tongue tie or mouth breathing, creates a high and narrow palate. That could lead to teeth crowding, reduced airway, speech, feeding difficulties and more!
Your tongue influences stability and posture throughout your body. Your tongue acts as a support system through a facia line that reaches right down to your toes! Low tongue posture can lead to head/neck/ jaw pain and tension throughout the body.
