EP16: How Tongue Tie Affects Babies and Adults with Sarah Hornsby

In episode 16 we are hearing how tongue tie affects babies and adults with Sarah Hornsby.  Sarah graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University. With an interest in natural health and wellness, and getting to the root cause of health problems, she subsequently became interested in how the health of the mouth directly relates to the overall health of the body. This led her to train to become a myofunctional therapist.

She opened up her myofunctional therapy practice, Faceology, in Seattle in 2010. She took the entire practice online in 2014, becoming the world’s first fully-online myofunctional therapy practice.  One of her passions is to spread and create awareness about myofunctional therapy. So in addition to working with patients, she also runs MyoMentor, an educational institute that trains dentists, hygienists, and other health professionals to become myofunctional therapists.  Sarah is from the Pacific Northwest and currently lives in Hawaii where she consults with patients, doctors, and other healthcare providers from all over the world.
