The mask connects to the machine, and is how the air generated by the machine is delivered to your face.... the mask is useless without the machine.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Tires are expensive too....but they really do make the automobile roll better.

Hi hywassup,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Yes, you need the machine along with the mask for the therapy to work.
Much success to you.
