For this reason I have developed two levels of clinics:
We provide, three 1 1/2 hour sessions over three successive days during the school holidays for all our children, teenagers and adults who are undergoing orthodontic treatment with us. The primary aim is to establish lips together breathing so that we can attain the optimal development of the shape of the face and jaws and to prevent relapse in the future. However, the secondary effect is for the health, especially in the area of respiratory ailments such as asthma, snoring and sleep apnoea, which are very common ailments with people in need of orthodontic treatment. The reason being the causes are all related.
For people who wish to improve their health, or suffer from asthma and other respiratory diseases, who have snoring and sleep apnoea, people who have high blood pressure and other coronary diseases. In fact, for anyone who is taking any pills whatsoever the first and fundamental thing to do is to get your breathing correct and then seek any further medical treatment you might need. These courses are of four 1 1/2 hour sessions spread over about four weeks. The exercises given are simple and relaxing but profoundly transformative.
