When I swallow there's a feel pressure begin from the front of my palate to the back. This is why people say that you should make a wave motion or feel a wave-like motion from your tongue. How come you're using facial muscles, how are we gonna fix that? I'll admit it, I barely feel pressure on the soft palate.

The palatoglossus is responsible for elevating the back of the tongue and completing the swallow but theres no one who has any exercises to help this. [Rude Language or Insults are not tolerated]
