How many zzz's do you get?

Airway health is important for daytime function, but what happens at night?

How important is sleep? Besides breathing, sleep is the most important healing magic that our bodies crave and need. It supports our daily function, and regulates our mood. The brain acts as regulator for the cardiovascular system. Sleep is a critical time where the brain and heart work together to restore the whole system.

Do you prioritize this special time where our bodies experience repair, rest, replenish and rejuvenate? It is estimated that the average person gets less than 6 hours of sleep per night.

About Sleeping Disorders

A sleep disorder is a condition which impacts a person's ability to function properly while awake, but also affects their sleep quality and duration. Poor sleep can be associated to physical, mental, and emotional issues.

  • Insomnia is persistent problems falling and staying asleep. They are related to poor sleep habits, depression, anxiety, lack of exercise, chronic illness and certain medications.

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a prevalent sleep-related breathing disorder where muscle activity in the airway is reduced and collapses repeatedly during sleep.

  • Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) is when the brain doesn't send signals to muscles that control breathing.

  • Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS) is a blockage or slowing down of air in the nasal passages disrupting sleep and causing fatigue.


Improve your sleep!

Research shows myofunctional therapy alone reduces the AHI (Apnea Hypopnea Index) by 50% in adults and 62% in children. Regular C pap use has been proven to reduce daytime sleepiness, increasing alertness and productivity.
Those who struggle with their c-pap therapy should consider adding myofunctional therapy to improve their overall outcome and compliance. 


At Breathing Essentials Myofunctional Therapy, we promote prevention through education and awareness. We want to advocate for you and every child who struggle with these issues. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep. Wouldn’t it be great to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day? Luckily, we offer a customized myofunctional program geared specifically towards sleep apnea clients.
