For individuals grappling with Oromandibular Dystonia, improving their quality of life often requires a multifaceted approach. While conventional treatments like medications, botulinum neurotoxin injections, and surgery have their merits, their effectiveness can vary significantly. The challenges arise when some patients experience limited benefits from these traditional treatments. This can be due to various factors, including a preference for noninvasive methods, concerns about potential side effects, resistance to botulinum toxin, or allergies to medications. In such cases, exploring alternative avenues becomes essential.

One promising alternative is the integration of Neuroplasticity exercises. These approaches can instill hope and offer new possibilities for those with Oromandibular Dystonia.

Dr. Joaquin Farias’ Research and Journey

Drawing upon over 25 years of experience, Dr. Joaquin Farias embarked on a remarkable journey to develop an integrative complementary rehabilitation protocol for Oromandibular Dystonia and Meige’s Syndrome. This protocol, accessible online through the Dystonia Recovery Program, was created in collaboration with a dedicated group of healthcare providers, some of whom have also faced Dystonia themselves. Together, they offer a natural and accessible path for individuals worldwide to effectively manage their symptoms.

About Dr. Farias’ Neuroplastic Training Approach

Since 1996, Dr. Farias has been at the forefront of pioneering alternative treatments for dystonia, focusing on the induction of Neuroplasticity through movement.

Dr. Joaquin Farias is a leading specialist in treating dystonia through movement therapy. His personal mission is to provide patients with the least aggressive and most effective treatment available. Over the past three decades, Dr. Farias has helped thousands of individuals reclaim their lives and livelihoods after being affected by dystonia. His groundbreaking work in dystonia rehabilitation has been presented at prestigious institutions worldwide.

“Dr. Farias is a clinical genius in his work with the Dystonias. I believe, as time evolves, it will be clear that his work is of historical importance.” — Dr. Norman Doidge M.D. Author of “The Brain That Changes Itself” and “The Brain’s Ways of Healing”

In 2018, Dr. Farias extended his impact by launching the Dystonia Recovery online program, making his alternative protocols for dystonia rehabilitation accessible to individuals in need worldwide.

Can Dr. Farias’ Recovery Program Help with Oromandibular Dystonia?

Since 2018, over 8,000 individuals worldwide affected by dystonia have enrolled in our program. We are delighted to report that many of our users who diligently followed the program for a year or more have experienced significant improvements in their symptoms related to Oromandibular Dystonia. These improvements include a remarkable reduction in dystonia pain, substantial alleviation of TMJ tension, patients have regained the ability to chew, speak, and swallow, and enhanced emotional well-being.

Harnessing Neuroplasticity for Recovery

Understanding the concept of Neuroplasticity plays a pivotal role in Oromandibular Dystonia therapies, as it facilitates the reconfiguration of cortical and subcortical circuits, incorporating alternative pathways for improved functions and aiding in the recovery from brain injuries.

The brain’s ability to adapt, known as Neuroplasticity, holds significant importance in both cognitive and physical well-being. Dr. Farias’ Neuroplastic Training employs simple movements to optimize critical brain circuits, ultimately making recovery from Oromandibular Dystonia a reality. Patients adhering to our training protocols have witnessed remarkable improvements and, in some cases, have achieved full recoveries from Oromandibular Dystonia.

In the treatment of Oromandibular Dystonia, recognizing the brain’s remarkable capacity to reshape itself is paramount. The genetically predetermined functions of the cerebral cortex can be influenced and modified through experiences and learning.

Physiological plasticity encompasses changes that facilitate the recovery of impaired functions. This process involves the creation of new synapses, functional reorganization, the integration of new areas into established networks, and the recruitment of different regions to compensate for losses. The brain adapts through mechanisms such as dendrite sprouting, functional reorganization, and activating redundant pathways.

Your Journey Toward Recovery Begins Now

At the heart of our program is a holistic brain retraining-rehabilitation approach, carefully designed by Dr. Farias to optimize your journey toward overcoming Oromandibular Dystonia.

Understanding the Protocol

Oromandibular Dystonia, akin to all dystonias, presents a complex condition that demands a comprehensive approach for optimal outcomes. Our program draws from Dr. Farias’ 30 years of research on aiding Dystonia-affected patients.

Customized Training Protocols

Our rehabilitation protocols for Oromandibular Dystonia encompass Dr. Farias’s Neck, Eyelid, and Eye Exercises, coupled with the general protocol integrating Dance, Breathing Exercises, Advanced Breathing Techniques, Relaxation, Meditation, Sensory Stimulation, and Nutrition.


Dr. Farias advocates a gradual approach, starting with straightforward exercises and progressing to a variety that balances your entire facial muscles to alleviate spasms. Regular practice of these simple motions can induce neuroplasticity, altering the structure and function of your brain.

Organizing Your Daily Schedule

Dedicate a minimum of 45 minutes each day to exercises—15 minutes for breathing, 5 minutes for neck, 10 minutes for eye and eyelid exercises, 10 minutes for facial exercises, and 5 minutes for sensory stimulation. Tailor your routine to your needs, especially if you have Oromandibular symptoms, which necessitate an additional 5 minutes of specific exercises.

Dance Therapy

Infuse dance into your daily routine by choosing from diverse choreographies designed for various dystonias. Dance not only provides physical benefits but also enhances the therapeutic experience.

Relaxation Techniques

Set aside time for the Relaxation Course, where you can select from Music Therapy, Taiji, Yoga, Hypnosis, Meditation, or Kung Fu forms. The calming effects of these practices significantly contribute to your overall recovery.

My name is Teresita and I am 67 years old… I have had  Meige and Blepharospasm close to 15 years.  Luckily doing my own research I came upon Dr Farias and have been dedicated to his on line program with results but I knew that my work had to be fine tuned and longed for away to get one on one advice from this amazing doctor. Well I mustered the courage to sign up for the on line seminar having apprehensions regarding my ability to use technology or to share my face on a screen with strangers. The awaited day came… within minutes Christine and Patricia from Northern Ireland spoke to me followed by a sweet Amy from South Africa Fernanado from Spain Dave from Belgium Cristina from Mexico James from Rhode Island… and then Dr Farias…in no time… I felt welcomed and comfortable and among friends. Through the screen I could feel  Dr Farias’ interest and care for each us… the worry and apprehension melted away. He imparts an amazing amount of knowledge selflessly for you to take away and use. In short, I can not recommend to anyone enough the benefits of an on-line seminar with Dr Farias… it is multi-dimensional healing for body mind and soul…

On Friday morning I missed them all..
But am looking forward to the next and using the particular corrections given to me…I instantly feel results! Do it…. you won’t be sorry!😘 Teresita. USA
