It's all about finding the best embouchure configuration for your particular face, and then using that.  It is a mechanical approach to a musical end.  Playing in the most efficient form improves everything about your playing - yes it helps high range but it also helps mid and low range, opens your sound and gives you more endurance.  It's actually not just about embouchure, it's how the whole body functions toward efficient playing.

I was a very long term student of Reinhardt and he specifically asked me to carry on where he left off, so that's what I do, both in brass teaching and the low brass mouthpieces I design and manufacture.

It could be helpful if done correctly. It something best approached under the tutelage of a qualified instructor.

I worked with Doug a very long time and know this to be true.  I learned a great deal from him and I use that knowledge myself with my own students, such as they are.
