To report my second day of correcting tongue posture it’s way different feel of the tongue on the roof now. And I feel the forces being exerted is shifting.
Almost like the tongue is inside my throat partially, And slight feeling of getting in my air way little bit.
This is day 2 of rising my back of the tongue to the roof and I’m notice its a significant change in the posture.
Instead of the tongue staying low and then rising to the front on the mouth.
This picture may better illustrate this.
This is how my tongue was before, notice the back of the tongue is still low.
This is apparently how the tongue should be.
Notice the back of the tongue is all the way up on the roof.
Do the cheesy smile swallow I explained previous blog, to get that feel back of the tongue going up there and practice raising it up there.
It’s getting easier and easier for me but at first it was really awkward.
Now It just feel that I have more of my tongue on the roof. And Dr. Mike Mew told me this is the key because the back of the tongue is controlled by subconscious and once learned it will stay up there and that’s what helps to drive the maxilla up in the face. That steady, weak, long duration pressure.
Also the force of the tongue I feel is more back of the mouth now and some in the front by the tip of tongue still on the spot behind the front two teeth, where as before it was only at the front of the mouth, so there is a big difference taking place as far as the force that my tongue is exerting on the maxilla.
This difference in feeling tells me there is more of my tongue thats on the roof now. This probably means I will see way better progress from here on out as long as I keep training this posture.
I went to the gym today and I was working out and I already noticed some changes in the face taking place. This is pretty amazing so I wanted to share with ya’ll quickly.
Again it’s quite shocking that all this time I was really dedicated about tongue posture but chances are I was still doing it wrong.
Practice makes perfect.
