For the past 6 years Jennifer Blunston, BSc. PhD. has helped clients achieve better overall health as an orofacial myofunctional therapist—an emerging field in health care. Based out of Calgary, Alberta, Jennifer enjoys educating her clients on how proper nasal breathing and palatal tongue rest posture can help balance the nervous system, optimize our physiology, and promote physical recovery and wellness. She works with a wide range of clients including children who have adopted improper breathing or swallowing habits, to adults who are undergoing treatment for sleep apnea or TMJ therapy. In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys spinning, walking with her two dogs, and travelling with her husband and two children—exploring the world one country at a time! “Many of my clients seek treatment to alleviate facial pain and headaches, improve their fitness, prevent orthodontic relapse, and manage stress levels. My passion is working with clients who suffer from disordered breathing, jaw pain, or anxiety. We all deserve to breathe better, sleep better and feel better!” states Jennifer. Jennifer holds a Bachelor of Science at St. Francis Xavier University and a Doctorate degree in organic chemistry at the University of Alberta. Jennifer has completed continuing education in the field of orofacial myofunctional therapy with the Academy of Orofacial
