The tongue holding maneuver (Fujiu & Logemann, 1996), which is sometimes referred to as Masako maneuver (Logemann, 1998, p. 231), was created when I was working with Dr. Jeri A. Logemann as a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. In this article, I will describe how this maneuver was discovered and developed. By knowing the theories and scientific evidence behind the maneuver, clinicians will be better able to understand the purpose, potentials, and limitations of this technique. I hope that the efficacy of this relatively new maneuver will be investigated further by research-based studies, which may be conducted by some of the readers of this Newsletter.
