Exercise your lips.

Transform your life.

A breakthrough device for Snoring, Sleep Apnea, Stroke Rehab, Dementia, Myofunctional Therapy, Anti-Aging, Down Syndrome, Autism, Breast-feeding Deprivation and a host of other conditions.

Use it for 3 minutes, 4 times a day. You can transform yourself and say goodbye to many degenerative and life-style related diseases.

A decade of research and clinical trials by Dr Akihiro and many researchers have shown that the strength of our lip muscles or Lip Closure Strength (L-C-S) is directly related to our health. When our lip muscles are weak, our mouth automatically opens when we are asleep. This leads to mouth (oral) breathing, which can bring about the following problems:

  • An open mouth causes the tongue to fall backwards, obstruct the airway, and causes snoring, sleep apnea and other physiological conditions. (Refer to table at bottom of page.)
  • Breathing through the mouth while sleeping dries up saliva, which has antiseptic properties. This results in the proliferation of bacteria in the mouth and throat region and can lead to bad breath, mouth ulcers, periodontal diseases and skin problems like Acne and Eczema.
  • The obstruction of airway by the tongue lowers the amount of oxygen supply to the body. This can bring about accelerated aging and many life-style related diseases like hypertension, irregular heartbeat, stroke, dementia, hormonal imbalance and weight gain.
  • Extreme cases in weakness of lip muscles can be seen in children suffering from Autism, Down Syndrome, Speech impediment and other brain-related conditions. It was found that by increasing the lip closure strength through Patakara training, the patient’s conditions improved considerably. Many enjoyed recovery over time.
  • Weakness of lip and facial muscles can lead to blocked nose and sinus, poor teeth alignment, teeth grinding and temporomandibular disorders..
  • Weak lip muscles (which are part of the visceral muscles) also reflect an innate weakness of the parasympathetic nervous system. This can show up as stress, indigestion, constipation, cold hands and feet and other symptoms (listed below) related to the imbalance of many internal organs and systems.

  • (Airway Clear)
    Nose Breathing. When the mouth is closed during sleep, the tongue touches the upper jaw and nose breathing occurs.


    (Airway Obstructed)

    Mouth Breathing. When mouth opens, the base of the tongue drops backward obstructing the airway. This lowers the amount of oxygen supply and can bring about accelerated aging, hypertension, irregular heartbeat, stroke, dementia, hormonal imbalance and weight gain

    In 2000, Dr Akihiro invented the Lip Trainer – Patakara, a simple and non-invasive device which can help to improve the broad spectrum of above-mentioned lifestyle related diseases that plague people from infants to old folks. The Patakara can address the 4 major degenerative and lifestyle conditions that are related to Oral Breathing, Imbalance in Parasympathetic Nervous System, Brain Diseases and Loose Facial Muscles.

    Patented worldwide, the Patakara is being used in over 5,000 clinics and hospitals in Japan and in many other countries. In Japan alone, more than 500,000 consumers have benefited from the use of this remarkable device.

    Simply by using the Liptrainer to strengthen our lip muscles for 3-5 minutes, 4 times a day, we can find a way to overcome many of the health conditions mentioned above and shown below:
