FaceFormer Training

FaceFormer exercises are easy to perform and quickly achieve success with little effort. First results are often noticeable after only a few days. Through daily training a good development is usually to be expected after approx. 6-10 weeks. The exercises are to be carried out for a total of six months.

Be patient and stay tuned! The new patterns of movement and behaviour have to be practiced and automated until they have become flesh and blood. Finally, regular use of the FaceFormer can be dispensed with.

FaceFormer Training is effective

FaceFormer-TrainingFaceFormer-TrainingContinous Face Former training has an effective influence on cranial nerve function and brain performance, neurophysiological patterning, coordination, tension of tissues and muscles, functions in the mouth, throat and facial regions, body posture, body movement and sensory abilities.


Causal therapies, such as the FaceFormer therapy are not successful from one day to the next. Instead, a gradual approach to the desired goal is achieved and success is stabilized.

Corrected functions avoid continuous dependence on onerous drugs and aids. Surgery can be prevented. The Face Former therapy can bring about positive effects in just a few days or weeks. To stabilize the new posture and motion patterns the training has to be adhered to for at least 6 months. The goal is achieved and the therapy is completed when physiological movement patterns, postures and muscle tension have been automated.

Exercise instructions – This is how it’s done

Step 1 – Start position

PLACING THE FACEFORMER

The FaceFormer is placed in the oral vestibulum.

  1. The mouth shield is behind the lips and in front of the teeth.
  2. The lip wedge is directed outwards.
  3. The lips surround the lip wedge relaxedly.

This is how to place the FaceFormer

Position of th Tongue Tip

  1. The tip of the tongue is located a few millimeters behind the upper incisors on the palate.
  2. There, the tongue tip feels a small bulge. It does not touch the teeth.
  3. This position of the tongue tip is always maintained. It is the natural, correct posture and must become a habit.
The tongue is located behind the upper incisors on the palate.

Proper position of the tongue tip

Head position and straightened neck

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

Posture of the lower jaw

The upper incisors are in front of the lower ones. *
Do not push the lower outward.
The temporomandibular joints adjust to a natural, relieved position.

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

The upper incisors are in front of the lower ones, the jaw joints are relieved.

Nasal breathing is essential

The nasal breathing accompanies all exercises.

GGet used to breathing through your nose.

Step 2 – Exercises

Basic exercise

  1. Press the lips firmly together for 6 seconds.
  2. While the lips remain pressed together,
    bite molars briefly together and swallow once.
    Always maintain the proper tongue position.
  3. Afterwards, relax your lips for 6 seconds.
    Repeat the exercise 20 times.

Repeat the exercise 20 times.

Press lips together firmly for 6 seconds.

A Press Lips

Relax your lips for 6 seconds.

B Relax lips

Nicht vergessen: Zungenhaltung, Nackenstreckung, Nasenatmung! 3 mal täglich 6 Sekunden An- und Entspannung. 20 Wiederholungen pro Übung.

Pulling exercise

  1. Press the lips firmly together for 6 seconds.
  2. Meanwhile, use the thumb and forefinger to pull the lip wedge forward.
  3. While the lips remain pressed together, bite molars briefly together and swallow once. Always maintain the proper tongue position.
  4. Afterwards, relax your lips for 6 seconds.

Repeat the exercise 20 times.

 

You can suck in the mouth shield.
A high underpressure is being formed in the mouth and throat.
Right and left hand alternate while pulling.

Nicht vergessen: Zungenhaltung, Nackenstreckung, Nasenatmung! 3 mal täglich 6 Sekunden An- und Entspannung. 20 Wiederholungen pro Übung.

Step 3 – Nightly application

Due to the training your nasal breathing improves noticeably after about 2-3 weeks.
Additionally, insert the FaceFormer now also at night.
The nightly application promotes

  • Nasal breathing and mouth closure
  • Underpressure in mouth and throat
  • Strengthening of muscles and tissues
  • Stabilization of the posture and tension of the tongue, soft palate and throat
  • Automation of movement patterns
Nach 2-3 Wochen wird der FaceFormer auch nachts eingesetzt.

Nach 14 Tagen FaceFormer nachts einsetzen

Your Path to Your Success

Zungenspitze nach oben. Nackenstreckung. Nasenatmung. FaceFormer-Training mind. 6 Monate.

3 mal täglich. 6 Sekunden Anspannen; Aufbeißen / Schlucken; 6 Sekunden Entspannen. 20 Wiederholungen pro Übung.

How is trained – Method 3-6-20

Practice daily for at least 6 months, even though success occurs quickly.

In rare cases, skin irritation may occur in the mouth. Temporarily reduce the training to 8-10 repetitions, 2-3 times a day. Then continue training as described. In addition, you can apply lip balm on both sides of the FaceFormer’s mouth shield.

More Info

Continuous Face Former training has an effective influence on cranial nerve function and brain performance, neurophysiological patterning, coordination, tension of tissues and muscles, forming of underpressure in mouth and throat, functions in the mouth, throat and facial regions, body posture, body movement and sensory abilities.
Causal treatments, such as the Face Former therapy, are designed to achieve positive changes that ensue gradually with lasting success. Corrected functions can replace medications and aids, likewise surgeries can be avoided. Therefore, causal therapies are generally preferable to symptomatic treatments.

Often the FaceFormer therapy brings positive changes after only a few days or weeks. To stabilize the new postures and movement patterns, the training should be maintained for at least 6 months.

Supplementary pulling exercises

The supplementary pulling exercises are performed as described in step 2. Only the pull direction is changed.
Lediglich die Zugrichtung wird geändert.

Zugübung: Zug nach unten

Pulling downwards

Zugübung: Zug nach oben

Pulling upwards

Good to know

Prevention and treatment of causes are the primary goal of any medical aid. Human health can thus be protected and can also be stabilised.

The FaceFormer therapy developed by us aims at the causative correction of health disorders – starting from the head. Eating, drinking, swallowing, breathing, jaw movement and head balance are vital functions of the head, neck and throat region.

Disorders of these functions have a significant influence on human health. They can cause aberrations, stress and pain in various body regions. FaceFormer therapy focuses on the correction of such malfunctions and their implications. Natural movement patterns and postures are practised, learned and stabilized. Thus, the FaceFormer therapy follows the ideal of a causal neurophysiological treatment.

 

The FaceFormer exercises are effective and easy to perform. First successes often occur after only a few days. Let it motivate and inspire you and consistently maintain the FaceFormer program for 6 months. In this way, the newly acquired skills are automated and become a habit.

We wish you much success and are happy to be there for you.

Cleaning and Hygiene

  1. Each user has his own FaceFormer (no use of multiple persons).
  2. After normal use, the FaceFormer is rinsed under warm water (toothbrush principle).
  3. The cleaned FaceFormer is stored in the designated hygiene box.
  4. In clinics the FaceFormer is autoclaved regularly (110 to 130 °C).
  5. For non-hospital use, at home, the FaceFormer can be sterilized in boiling water for about 20 seconds.
  6. In special cases (for example, infectious users), a doctor or hygienist will decide on sterilization measures.
