I've never thought much about my facial muscles. As you'll learn today, that's a big mistake. Hundreds of muscles between your shoulders and head keep you alive and functioning well.

Meet our guest
Karese Laguerre is a Registered Dental Hygienist. She graduated from the University of Medicine and Dentistry NJ. As a mother of four, Karese actively sought solutions to symptoms her kids experienced. Such as snoring, wetting the bed until age 9, sleepwalking, frequent congestion, allergies, inability to breastfeed, diagnosis with ADHD, and sensory processing issues. She discovered a rarely discussed missing link, studied under Sandra Holtzman, and became an Orofacial Myologist. Later, Karese founded The Myo Spot where she helps others improve their sleep, health, and facial aesthetics using a special type of training.
