A Bit About Voice Therapy
Voice therapy is a crucial tool in treating voice disorders and helping individuals recover their vocal abilities. This therapy effectively targets specific vocal behaviors and promotes the healing of the vocal cords to restore vocal strength. Additionally, voice therapy can be used as a preventative measure to avoid voice disorders altogether.
In cases of transgender individuals, gender-affirming voice therapy offers a powerful avenue for vocal transformation and alignment with personal identity. With the guidance of a professional, voice therapy can significantly improve your vocal performance, offering newfound confidence and clarity in everyday life.
Traditional voice therapy consists of two primary avenues: Vocal Hygiene and Voice Therapy. Vocal hygiene is a daily regimen to achieve and maintain a healthy voice. Vocal hygiene includes maintaining adequate hydration (6-8 glasses of water per day), minimizing exposure to noxious chemicals, not smoking cigarettes, and avoiding excessive shouting, screaming, or other loud voice use. Voice therapy is a behavioral intervention technique that makes use of vocal exercises, speaker awareness, and proper postures and alignment when using the voice.
