Does Insurance pay for Therapy?
I am not a provider for any insurances. Many medical insurances are starting to have some coverage for Myofunctional Therapy but you will have to check with your own insurance company. I have helped some clients to get some coverage and I'd be happy to help you too.
How many sessions do I have to do?
The number of sessions depends on the types and number of dysfunctions. I do not have a set number of sessions as no two people are the same, kids or adults. And no two types of dysfunctions can be treated the same. I can say that most of my clients have been able to complete sessions in an average of 12 sessions, with few exceptions.
And therapy can last from 6 - 9 months.
