Not only a great amount of people are losing voices these days, but also a lot of them are experiencing severe pain in their throats.
The singers are usually ruining their vocal anatomy simply for the lack of education and simple knowledge; and thus, lack of the proper vocal technique. They very often end up with laryngitis, i.e., with the hoarse and raspy voice; not to mention an extreme pain in their throats. The singers (also very often) end up with the growth on their vocal cord(s); such as polyps, nodules, cysts and etc.
The regular people who do not take proper care of their voice and (in majority of times) their health in general, usually end up with muscle tension dysphonia or spasmodic dysphonia. Nevertheless, they (of course) are also susceptible to the growth on their vocal cords, but more like papilloma and polyps. They are also very susceptible to lesions in their throats, as well as burnt vocal cords due to the occurrence of acid reflux.
Unfortunately, both speakers and singers are also not exempt from vocal cord(s) paralysis/paresis.
Naturally, there is physical pain (to whichever degree for
whichever vocal injury); but also, there is an emotional pain, as both speakers
and singers realize that something out of the ordinary is happening to them and
their voices. And, especially at the beginning of this ordeal, they feel quite
lost, not knowing what to do and where to get help.
Our philosophy at The Royans Institute for Non-Surgical Voice Repair is “All Voice – No pain”!
Once we uncover and discover (in a manner of speaking) the
injured voice, we (via special speech exercises, coupled with specially
designed body motions) try, at all costs, to release the “trapped” voice from
its vocal anatomy “prison”, (so to speak). Especially in the case of Muscle Tension Dysphonia (where
neck muscles literally hold the voice in ‘contempt’), the voice, nevertheless,
has to be “yanked” out of there, which is (no doubt) easier said then done.
The neck muscles are “truly in love” with the human voice and even when my client and I think that the voice is finally “flying” out of there, it is like a swamp, “calling” it and literally “pulling” it back in.
Sometimes, the recurrence of the above happens multiple
Once the voice is finally released from the lower throat and the neck muscles, the pain usually subsides and the sufferer feels a great release; and not only physically, but emotionally as well.
Now the human voice has to find a “new home” - the facial muscles!
Those facial cavities will become a real saviour for anybody
who had voice issues and everybody else who cares about their speaking/singing
voice in general. Those (in a sense) sinus cavities will amplify the voice at
least quadruple times over its volume; and naturally, will promote a proper
articulation and enunciation. However, without the support of the abdominal muscles, the
lift of the voice is not possible.
Therefore, the abdominal muscles have to be strengthened to be able to give a proper “launch” for the voice to “soar” to its aimed destination, provided that the sound lands within those facial muscles. At that point, the voice within the newly found facial muscles will be working in full conjunction and coordination with the abdominal muscles. The above (in turn) will minimize the use of the throat, larynx and the vocal cords.
To Conclude, there will be “All Gain and No Pain”, i.e., by
osmosis, “All Voice and No Pain”, as (at that point) the vocal anatomy will be
completely released from the pressure of the sound; and, in addition, nurtured
with natural herbal and homeopathic remedies for its complete healing.
