Facial Concepts, Inc. was formed in 1989 to develop a patented facial rehabilitation device that increased oral-motor strength. The Facial-Flex exercise device was originally created as a treatment method for microstomia, a severe constrictor of the orbicularis oris muscle (the muscle surrounding the mouth) caused by deep facial burns. However, the potential for broader rehabilitation applications was quickly recognized and Facial-Flex is also used as a medical product for various facial care and rehabilitation needs. Facial-Flex has been used to help patients with a multitude of speech and language disorders, facial nerve disorders, strokes, MS, ALS, autoimmune neuromuscular disease, surgical trauma, Bell’s palsy and other chronic debilitating facial disorders. It has also been used in Dental/TMD/TMJ rehabilitation. The benefits of Facial-Flex were also discovered in the health and beauty arena. Facial-Flex is also a FDA Registered Class 1 Medical Device.

Chronic stress is a constant problem that persists over an extended period of time. Chronic stress may become difficult to manage and may be psychologically and physically debilitating.
Physical signs like Headache, gastrointestinal disturbances, sleep problems, muscle tension, muscle ache, muscle pain, and fatigue are some of the symptoms of stress.
People with chronic stress tend to incline towards addictions and have a greater tendency to engage in unhealthy activities like as overeating, smoking cigarettes, and excessive use and abuse of alcohol and drugs.
A person with chronic stress can stimulate endorphin release by regular activity and exercise. Physical activity helps the brain to cope with and respond to stress.
The body reacts to stress by releasing a hormone adrenaline that causes breathing and heart rate to speed up and blood pressure to rise. These physical reactions are set off to deal with the situation by confronting it or by running away from it - the "fight or flight" response. But when stress is chronic the body remains in high gear off and on for days or weeks at a time, which may result in Heart Diseases.
