DR MARY BOURKE

Mary has a unique and experiential perspective on children’s health and development - particularly as it relates to oral facial function. The daughter of pioneering Australian dentist Dr Kevin Bourke, she grew up surrounded by his passion for human health and learning about the intricacies of oral facial growth, breathing and the origins of human nutrition. Mary has been in Chiropractic Practice for over 28 years and is a great believer in the synergistic benefits of working with other health practitioners in a collaborative approach. This belief in collaboration has been very much a part of the philosophy behind Myo Munchee and is critical to getting best patient outcomes for oral facial and cranial growth, neurology and function of the stomatognathic system. One of her key professional goals with both chiropractic care and as the CEO of Myo Munchee is to spread the word about the benefits of chewing and the denaturing effects of long term pacifier use.

SARAH HORNSBY

Sarah graduated with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 2008. Her desire to find new ways to help her patients led her to train in myofunctional therapy soon after she started working as a hygienist. As she learned more about her own orofacial myofunctional symptoms, she became increasingly interested in getting to the root cause of not only oral myofunctional problems, but poor health in general. Sarah’s passion for helping people drove her to investigate how the airway, craniofacial development, breathing, and the tongue are linked to our overall health, sleep, and wellbeing. 

She’s been practicing myofunctional therapy for the past 10 years and has gone on to run a highly successful online practice called Faceology. She also established a unique educational institute that trains dentists, hygienists, and other health professionals in myofunctional therapy called MyoMentor.
