Tuning Up the Tongue

KATHY BRANNAN


1987 CONFERENCE PAPER

I was using muscle balancing in my work as a massage therapist, and after watching the therapist’s speech evaluation, I began to think of the tongue as a muscle, or a network of muscles, controlled by the different hemispheres of the brain. With a little experimentation, I soon discovered that, by putting the tongue in extension and testing an indicator muscle, I could find the tongue posi- tions that seemed to cause stress to the system.
