But BEWARE– Using Too Much Force Can Have Side Effects
🔎 Revealed on this page...
😱 3 Ways Hard Mewing Can Go WRONG: learn the causes of these horrible side-effects and make sure you're not doing them.
👉 😀 👈 Should YOU Hard Mew?: will applying extra force for extended periods of time improve your facial aesthetics?
Mewing takes time to see results. Heck, it can even take months just to learn how to do mewing.
But there is a way you "speed up" the changes that proper tongue posture makes to your face. Read on:
It's called hard mewing, and it works. I've personally tried it out and I'm sure that it accelerated my mewing transformation.
It comes with some big risks though... we'll talk about that in a second.
What is Hard Mewing?
It is simply applying more pressure to your palate with your tongue. It's thought extra force applied for extended periods will reinforce the nerve pathways for mewing and lead to faster results.
There's no research at all on hard mewing, and the long-term effects and risks are unknown. But hundreds of people have reported accelerated results with it.
BEWARE: the side effects of bad oral posture can be worse than the reward. Many people who have just started mewing start using extra force right away.
Unfortunately this can ruin your facial aesthetics with things like facial asymmetry or crooked teeth. No thanks!
Does Hard Mewing Work?
Yes. I've seen countless examples where hard mewing has led to faster mewing results.
It's most common in teenagers because their faces are more malleable. But I've also seen results in people aged 30 and older.
Like me for example! I started mewing at 25. After 8 months I started Hard Mewing. And it worked pretty well for me. Check out my mewing transformation👇
Want more proof that hard mewing works? You'll find hundreds of personal success stories in these subreddits and on these sites:
Scroll the subreddits and you'll probably also find stories from disappointed mewing beginners.
Mewing will work if you're patient enough to turn it into a simple habit. But that's where people go wrong- they want results in just a few weeks.
Mewing alone won't make you ready for Hollywood. By having excessive expectations, many people jump into hard mewing too early and cause more harm than good.
What type of harm? Let's look at what hard mewing can do if you're not careful.
How to Do Hard Mewing
Follow these 6 steps to hard mew safely:
📖 1. Learn Regular Mewing FIRST❗️
I CAN'T EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH. You must be comfortable with the mewing tongue posture and be able to breath through your nose deeply.
Skip this step and you'll ruin your face.

👅 2. Push Your Tongue Up Against Your Palate HARD
Ideally you want to apply hard pressure with your entire tongue.
However the back part of your tongue is 100x stronger than the rest, so It's ok if you're mainly apply force from there.
Make sure you aren't pushing with the tip or front part of your tongue. That could push your teeth forward or lead to other "side-effects". We'll talk about below.
You'll have to consciously think about how to do all this correctly. And even remind yourself to do it at all- you're going to forget all the time.
After a few weeks it'll become natural.
Hard mewing makes changes happen faster. Good AND Bad changes...
🥛 3. Swallow Frequently
Correct and regular swallowing is a major part of hard mewing.
Your swallowing technique should almost entirely be done by the tongue- the same with regular mewing.
Every swallow applies a huge amount of force against your maxilla- which is the goal of hard mewing (and regular mewing too).
So don't worry if you're swallow frequently and producing a lot of saliva- that happens to everyone.
Training yourself to swallow properly will give you faster results. Check out this video of John Mew explaining how to improve your swallowing 👇

Hard Mewing VS Soft Mewing
- The proper posture is your tongue against your palate. Most important part is the back 3rd.
- Tongue is against palate, held in place by a mixture of suction hold and pressure.
- After a few months, this should be comfortable, fairly easy to maintain and breath. You should be able to do it all throughout the day without thinking about it.
- The proper posture is your whole tongue against your palate- just like soft or regular mewing. Most important part is the back 3rd.
- Tongue is against palate, held in place mainly by pressure. Apply as much pressure as you can upwards with your tongue against your palate.
- Should be uncomfortable if you're applying large amounts of pressure. You can only do this for a few hours maximum per day. It requires conscious effort to apply the pressure.
4 Risks of Hard Mewing
Alright. I've been harping on about how great hard mewing is.
I also said it's riskier than soft mewing. Let's look at the risks of using too much force and how to avoid them.
There's 3 main ways you can go wrong:
🚨 Risk #1: Gaps Between Your Teeth
If you don't have the correct tongue posture and you're not applying even pressure across your palate... you can "push" your teeth apart. I've heard a few stories where the gap between someone's main incisor teeth becomes wider.
🚨 Risk #2: An Asymmetrical Face & Jawline
With incorrect tongue posture and by applying uneven pressure- you can also cause changes in only one side of your face. This means one side of your jaw could become larger (or smaller) depending on what you do.
🚨 Risk #3: A Worse "Double Chin"
If you can't mew properly yet and you're still applying pressure with only the tip of your tongue- you can make a "bulge" appear under your chin.
🚨 Risk #3: Scalloping of the Tongue
Pushing your tongue against your teeth for long periods will make marks and indents on it. This looks like scallop wedges, hence the name.
NOTE: These side-effects come from not having the correct tongue posture. Make sure you learn the correct technique FIRST 👇
Should I Try Hard Mewing?
The risks listed above are scary. But things will all go smoothly and mewing will give you fantastic results... as long as you are mewing correctly.
Hard mewing is only "risky" if you don't have proper oral posture. If you're not sure about your mewing technique, please recap on the fundamentals of mewing 👇
If you haven't only just started mewing, and don't need a refresher on the steps... then you might be ready to start applying extra force.
🍼 Who Should Do Regular Mewing:
- Been soft mewing less than 4 months
- Not sure if you're doing the right tongue posture
- Can't breathe comfortable through your nose
- You have to "remind" yourself to mew
🍸 Who Can Try Hard Mewing:
- Been soft mewing for 4+ months
- Can get the back of your tongue against your palate
- Can breathe through your nose with your mouth closed
- Don't have to "think" about mewing. You just do it.
☝️ Does that sound like you? Then you're ready for hard mewing!
Start slow and only do it for a few hours a day in the beginning. You want to see how your muscles react before you go all in.
