Why Choose the Coulson Institute?
The Coulson Institute provides training in Myofunctional Therapy (also known as Oral Myology) across the world. Sandra is a former clinical professor for the University of Behavior Health Sciences.
Typically students of the Coulson Institute come from the following groups of health care professionals:
- Dental Hygienists
- Oral Health Therapists
- Speech Pathologists
- Breathing practitioners
Students come to learn from Sandra Coulson because of her caring, warm and direct nature and teaching style. Sandra "leaves nothing on the court" when she teaches and is passionate, committed and driven to share the work that has helped her shape the mouths (and sometimes lives) of the people she works with in practice and in her work as an educator.
Perhaps though, it is best left to the voices of others to express why you should consider the Coulson Institute for training in Oral Myology.
"I have one adult case with severe tongue tie that affects the periodontal condition around lower anteriors with severe lingual recession due to such tight tongue tether, which makes it extremely hard to maintain good oral hygiene, I urged him to have tongue tie release from hygienist point of view. We started on OM prior to release, the maximum opening with the tongue on the spot was 5 mm and after 3 sessions it is now 12 mm, I meant that's before release, amazing and the patient reports more flexibility already with the tongue.
"You wowed everyone with your presentation. You're right, pictures tell the story much better about the results you are able to achieve than trying to describe them. The symptoms you treat are ones we laypersons don't normally see or think about, until we see someone with those symptoms because the appearance is not normal. Your results are amazing, and clearly life changing to make the person's appearance more acceptable so they don't have to face negative reactions. You are blessed to be doing such rewarding work.
I think you also address issues that afflict many of us as we age. I'm thinking of snoring, sleep apnea, double chin, teeth, wrinkles and baldness. Well, maybe not all of those, but some. Maybe a follow-up talk would be in order to let us know what we might do for self help, and what might be appropriate for a private appointment with you.
Everyone was impressed with what you are able to do to help people. Thank you for sharing.
You are a treasure."
"Hi Sandy! I just wanted to thank you for an incredible course last week! We are back and working full steam ahead into helping our patients with what you have taught us. We still want you to move to our townhouse so that we can tap dance with you every night! "
