Jeanne Shimizu


Jeanne Shimizu has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 30 years.  She is a highly-trained Orofacial Myologist and Buteyko Breathing Educator practicing in California.


With myofunctional therapy she teaches children and adults the correct tongue position, proper swallowing technique and lips together /mouth closed posture to be practiced at all times. Buteyko breathing is a perfect adjunct to this.


In order to keep the mouth closed one needs to be able to breathe through their nose. With simple exercises and lots of practice breathing becomes better and easier. Anxiety, allergies or asthma can often interfere with a comfortable dental appointment. The buteyko breathing helps people with these issues to relax.


Jeanne is available for Myofuntional Therapy and Buteyko Breathing from San Francisco to Carmel, CA.


Orofacial myology is a program emphasizing oral posture, proper tongue position, and swallowing correctly. It has been proven to be effective in correcting oral habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.  It is often used in conjunction with orthodontics shortening the treatment and retaining long-term results by correcting the adverse behaviors.  A comprehensive program helps promote proper facial growth. 


Buteyko Breathing is a practice that teaches awareness of breath, non-stressed breathing, and nasal clearing. This unique program can improve a variety of physical aliments including acid reflux, nasal congestion, asthma symptoms, snoring, and other sleep disorders.
