Should I hold my breath?

Yes. When using IQoro, hold your breath for the 10 seconds when you pull IQoro outwards.
Not everybody can hold their breath for 10 seconds. Then it’s perfectly fine to hold your breath for as long as you can.

Should I create vacuum in my mouth?

No. You’re not supposed to swallow to create a vacuum in your mouth before pulling IQoro outwards. Your lips should create the resistanse against IQoro when pulling the device outward. If you create a vacuum in your mouth, your lips won’t have to exert when you pull IQoro. This will result in a poorer effect.

Where should my tongue be positioned?

Your tongue will automatically end up where it is supposed to when you pull the IQoro outwards according to our instructions. You do not need to worry about that.

What shape should my mouth have?

Form your mouth into a slight smile and close your lips around IQoro. Your lips should seal tightly against the handle. Your teeth should not be visible. Avoid forming a “kissing” mouth shape, as this will reduce the effectiveness of the exercise.

Should my teeth be touching each other?

Avoid clenching your teeth when training with IQoro. Your teeth may either touch each other during exercise, or there may be a small gap between your teeth. This can vary because our mouths look slightly different. The important thing is to relax your jaw while keeping your lips tense.

Will I cure my symptoms more quickly if I train more often than recommended?

No, you will most likely not get a better effect from exercising more often than recommended. Instead, your muscles may become overworked and you may experience soreness.
