Hard mewing is a technique where instead of applying gentle forces to the tongue, you instead increase the force on your palate. People claim that this can speed up the process of regular mewing.

There has been much interest in whether or not to hard mew. Can hard mewing benefit you?

Hard mewing is not recommended for beginners. However, it may be beneficial and speed up progress as long as it is done correctly and carefully.

What Is Hard Mewing?

Hard mewing is similar to soft mewing, but you actively push your tongue up against your palate and apply stronger forces.

Many people believe that hard mewing will bring results at a faster rate than soft or ordinary mewing.

At first glance, you may assume that more forces mean faster results. However, there are much more factors that go into hard mewing.

Whether you’re beginning with hard mewing or just thinking about it, we should discuss the subject in detail. Let’s get started by understanding the differences between hard and soft mewing.

Is Hard Mewing Effective?

Hard mewing has helped many people achieve significant results. Correct tongue positioning allows extra force to be applied, resulting in successful outcomes. Although we cannot conclude if these changes were caused by soft or hard mewing.

However, hard mewing is not recommended for beginners. When you hard mew, inconsistencies will cause detrimental damage to your face. It’s important to understand the fundamentals and get comfortable with mewing before you hard mew.

The Difference Between Hard and Soft Mewing

In soft or regular mewing, you only subtly push your tongue against your palate. A suction hold, when you create a vacuum/suction between your tongue and palate, is also applied in soft mewing.

Soft or regular mewing can be described as sticking your tongue against your palate. With hard mewing, you are actively pushing your tongue up against the palate and exerting a stronger force. Hard mewing can be described as consciously pushing up against your palate rather than just holding a mewing position.

Maintaining a vacuum between your tongue and palate is simple, but when you want to mew hard, you press your tongue against the palate as hard as you can, which results in excessive pressure.

Is Hard Mewing Healthy?

There can be health benefits to hard mewing, but there can also be multiple disadvantages. You should periodically incorporate more powerful or hard mewing, in which you apply more force than usual.
Before you attempt this, you must strengthen your tongue and establish proper oral posture. Therefore, the initial step is to practice proper tongue posture and build a habit.

During your treatment, your tongue will automatically rest against your palate. After long periods of mewing, you will find yourself mewing unconsciously. Building this habit is great for fast progress and will ensure that hard mewing is not causing a detrimental effect on your facial structure.

Several Disadvantages From Hard Mewing

Like anything, hard mewing can be harmful if done incorrectly. This is not without saying that hard mewing can also give benefits. However, these signs caused by hard mewing may be clear indicators that this technique is being done incorrectly, or it may not be for you.

  • Abnormal development of the face
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Jaw discomfort
  • Loss of feeling
  • Swollen tongue

If you find yourself with these symptoms, it may be a sign to stop. Try to practice maintaining good tongue posture before exerting stronger forces.

When Should I Start Hard Mewing?

If you want to hard mew, you should meet these two criteria.

> Are you unsatisfied with your results after a long time of mewing?

> Is soft mewing easy and natural for you?

If you do, then hard mewing is definitely an option and can be helpful.

Hard mewing really isn’t safe for anyone who is not experienced in soft mewing, or anyone who is already satisfied with the way things are going.

Hard mewing is slightly risky, but as long as you’re experienced in the general motion of mewing and you’re willing to take the risk for results, it’ll generally be helpful.

Should I Press Hard?

It’s too early to attempt mewing if you’ve just begun and are attempting to get your tongue posture proper.

There is insufficient scientific evidence to back up the subject, and you may damage yourself if you don’t get the fundamentals right.


In conclusion, we recommend beginning with gentle mewing and then gradually introducing intense mewing into your routine. Lastly, keep mewing. There is no downside to simple mewing. Even if you don’t see results, keep going. You will just get better if you keep mewing.
