The individualized program offered includes work in the areas of resonance, pitch, intonation, rate, volume/intensity, articulation and body language training, vocal hygiene and a client companion guidebook to help generalize the skills learned in therapy.

Functional Voice Therapy
Functional voice therapy is a holistic and preventative approach to vocal health and wellness. It is for any professional that uses their voice on a daily basis as a part of their job. If you are a professional voice user then you know your voice is your instrument and it has to be maintained. Don’t wait until you have an injury to heal it, prevention is the best strategy.
Our functional vocal wellness program includes a comprehensive assessment that takes a holistic dive into your vocal use, diet, lifestyle and environment. From there we develop a program based on your unique vocal needs to keep your voice supple, healthy and strong.
Treatment modalities include Mindful Voice™, customized vocal hygiene protocol, vocal function exercises, breath work and evidence based vocal therapy techniques.
Myofascial release for the voice, also known as a laryngeal massage or voice massage, is an ideal manual therapy for anyone who uses their voice professionally and finds they carry tension in the head, neck and laryngeal region. Laryngeal massage can help release muscle tension held in the laryngeal, the tongue, jaw and diaphragm. It can reduce voice fatigue, increase vocal range and improve overall vocal function.
Any professional vocal athlete (singer, politician, teacher, attorney, voice over action, etc) can benefit from a vocal massage. You are a good candidate for this hands - on manual therapy if you are a professional voice user and experience vocal strain, vocal fatigue, reduced vocal range, vocal hoarseness or any symptom that limits you from using your professional vocal instrument.
Myofasical release for voice is the only service not available via Skype, Please contact our offices to schedule an in - office visit.
Laryngeal massage is the only service that must be provided in person. Please contact us for more information.
