Definitely.

That's correct, and yes improper tongue posture during development is the root cause of most cases of teeth crowding, jaw recession and other similar problems. If tongue posture is a new concept to you, I suggest you check out Orthotropics -youtube channel for more details. In short, you have to cram as much of the tongue you can on the hard palate & soft palate with a force that is sufficient enough to keep your skull upright.

Start with light forces. People have damaged their teeth with excessive facepulling. In the end, facepulling is only a surrogate for proper anatomical function. If you are able to maintain firm tongue posture, there should not be need to facepull at all.

Is this jamo716? Is your method still the same? Could you post side view?

Cranial Restructuring / Re: Tongue too far back?
« on: November 28, 2017, 07:02:26 pm »
Ah, well yes. Considering how posterior tongue touches not just the palate, but the lower wings of the sphenoid too, that may have some practical validity:



And in addition, the anterior part of the palate truly is separated by another suture:



In the end, proper tongue posture leads to pressure being generated against both the anterior and posterior palate/sphenoid, so the most useful thing would be to simply focus on achieveing as wholesome tongue posture as possible.

Mew is of the opinion that the tongue should not touch teeth. Beyond that, I don't think it's that significant. Do whatever feels the most intuitive, or play around with different positions. Sometimes sliding the posterior tongue back & forth can be helpful in finding proper position & muscle activation.

Yeah that seems reasonable.  From my own experiences, I suspect that what you refer to as a tension-free state, is in practice the ability to position the body in a way that supports postural equilibrium. In other words, either standing up straight and tall as a fully self-supporting monolith resting against its own weight, or sitting on a damn good chair. Proper lotus pose is probably intended to achieve the same thing.

To me succesfully getting the posterior tongue as far up there as it can go soothes the nervous system in a way that is simultaneously calming and mildly energisizing. I don't reach this position every day, but every time I do it has happened after taking half an hour to find and forcefully tense and warm up all the necessary musculature required to reach close to 100% symmetrical and self-balanced posture (which does feel incredible). And that's temporary only. The next morning I'm stiff again and I have to repeat the process over. It gets easier over time.

To answer OP's question: it may be hard to achieve the state of relaxation Tyler is talking about while having to bite on anything. Proper upper spine posture is easy to achieve with the hockey helmet decive, because the forces generated by it are countered by the same muscles that are required to hold the spine straight.

 Anyhow, I would advice you to practice getting your whole core into your conscious control until you're able to "inhale"/compress the whole torso (stomach, back, chest, tongue, neck) inward towards the lungs and the spine, resulting in a very stable and fluid posture.  It's essential that you learn to do this. Because without the tongue being able to use the spine and the palate as a leverage for anchoring itself deep into the open space beyond your soft palate, the resting position of the tongue isn't able provide enough static pressure to achieve change.

Cranial Restructuring / Re: New information related to face-pulling
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:21:28 pm »
Probably. Myofunctional therapy advices patients to sleep on their back. In this position the tongue tends to end up pushing against the palate throughout the night. I've noticed that often when I go to bed, relax and let my tongue rest against the palate, my sinuses make several popping and cracking sounds, clearing all congestion and making breathing VERY easy. The amount of air I breathe in this state is also slightly stimulating and sometimes I can't fall asleep for a while.

Ha, when you set on to change your face in spite of respected professionals dismissing it as impossible, claiming that the face you have now is the genetic expression of "you" that you were meant to have, how could anything that happens next not be an adventure?

But yes, I understand 100% what you mean by having the intuitive knowledge that your face is lacking in some way.

Liver is disgusting

Have you tried submerging the liver in full fat milk for a couple of hours before cooking it? Neutralizes the taste very efficiently.

Anything that directly or indirectly targets the sphenoid has the potential to expand the whole skull, palate included.

Tyler, do you have any similar side profile pics from before you embarked on this journey?

i have an issue too.i dislocated my right shoulder 5 years ago and ever since the doctors put it back in my right shoulder is more forward than the left.my right side of my face is more recessed too.my right face side was recessed before i suffered the dislocation so i don't know if it's correlated but the injury definitely won't help in getting my face symmetrical

Try this:
 
1. Tense your core from hips to upper chest
2. Without allowing your spine to rotate, push & bend one shoulder to one directional extreme and the other shoulder to the opposite directional extreme.
3. While maintaining the tension created by the shoulders moving to opposite directions, start rotating your shoulders in circles. For the whole circular movement keep the shoulders in their maximum range of motion at 180 degrees from each other, and try to maintain static amount of resistance through the rotation (which you won't be able to do at first if the shoulders are in a state of imbalance).

IMO Starecta is the base. face pulling and expansion imo wont give you the results you want without starecta.
Starecta is the anti-base. To start from the base you'd have to actually start from the base. Starecta argues that posture and structure is determined by the bite, while in my view it's clear that the bite you have is determined by your posture.  Starecta is a top to bottom approach, starting from the most superficial dysfunction (bite) and continuing the way down towards the most primal, original dysfunction (usually hips or feet). But there's no way to guarantee you'll ever reach all the way down to the the feet, or whatever is the REAL base of your postural problems.

Working your way in ascendion from bottom to up, on the other hand, is comprehensive, because you won't be able to move on to the next link in the chain before have the former parts of the chain in full control. But you CAN accidentally miss a link when progressing in descending order.

The before-after pictures of the creator of the Starecta method do show improvements, but the final posture is still far from ideal - he needs to go further.



In contrast, this is how I stand:




Final results vs work in progress. See the relationship between the head and upper torso. Or position of head & hips. He is semi-literally sloughing compared to me. See the difference in core activation and athletic form. I don't do any sports at the moment, yet I look fit, because instead of merely opening the body, I have strengthened it and learned to actually USE it in daily movements. I'm functionally symmetrical up to somewhere around the upper chest area. When the remaining musculature above this area starts to finally work in unison with the rest of the body, the wholesome forces of the changed movement patterns will start to reshape the facial structure into a more symmetrical form. My jaw has already started hanging towards the less developed side of the maxilla, meaning that some static structural pressure is already being generated into that direction.
