I do the chin tuck with mewing.

I feel pressure on my ramus/jaw, but especially cheekbones, kinda burning, maybe a little bit around my nose as well..

Is that how it is supposed to be for facial upswing?

Yes!

There is another study/lecture where I learned that the primary point of resistance against forward maxillary movement is the zygomatic buttress. This is where you get the "I feel it in my cheekbones" resistance when you really get the posture and force down correctly. You might feel it alternatively on the outside of your cheekbones or on the interior near the nose.

This resistance point is also the rotational hinge point in growth. If you push the maxilla directly against it, it grows forward. If you push from underneath, you have counterclockwise rotation, and vice-versa. This is from maxillary protraction facemask studies (bone anchored).

Maybe because your face is better developed than mine.

In  my case, im 18 and i've never put my tongue on my palate, even when I swallow.

Maybe I feel lot of pressure because there is an important "lack of dev"

@krollic That's what I used to feel when I only engaged anterior tongue.

When I fully engaged posterior tongue to the point of blocking my airway, making a snoring/grunting/coffee machine type sound, that's when I started feeling compressive force in cheekbones/zygos and sometimes near nose and eyes. Just saying, I wasn't properly engaging my posterior tongue for longer than I'd like to admit.

I feel only pressure between the eyes, nothing at the cheekbones. But there was some dude on reddit who had great results (18-20yo if I remember correctly) and he said he felt no sensations at all.

Same bro, been mewing for like 7 months now with no changes in my face at all. I might be coming to the conclusion that you can only make changes if you feel these sensations

you better feel a lot of pressure if you wanna rotate a bone thats attached to pretty much every other bone in the face, you are wasting your time if you dont feel pressure

you are wrong you need to expand the palate to rotate the maxilla

so youre saying you need a big palate to have a upswung maxilla? and people with narrow palates have downswung maxillas?

Hi ,

yes, somewhat.

You can translate a wide and narrow palate into unfolfed palate (flat  -> upswung) and folded palate ( vaulted-> downswung) palate.

To give you an idea, form and arch with your index and thumb and widen and shrink them . The length of the arch stays the same but height changes.

The wide and shorter palate allows the mandible to upswing

I am getting my jaw expander device installed (MSE) this month. I think this will amplify my mewing results.
