Here at Lace Market Clinic we think of singing as sport for the voice and we encourage the singers we treat to do the same. The voice is, after all, the product of muscle action in the same sense that running is. Most singers understand that tension and fatigue can affect their voice but until they really start to treat their voice seriously few realise the tremendous benefit that can be achieved from vocal massage.

Across all sports, and we include singing in this, a defining factor of the greatest performers is their ability to make β€˜it’ look effortless. This is because if we can perform well with minimum effort then when we put in maximum effort you can produce a world class performance. Vocal fatigue and muscle tension makes singing anything but effortless. It can result in loss of vocal range, pain and voice inconsistency. A vocal massage aims to address issue in these muscles and joints giving you the ability to exercise the muscles fully and crucially rest well so that when you come to perform all your effort goes toward helping you produce your best rather than just getting you off the starting blocks.

A vocal massage treatment may encompass a variety of massage and myofascial release techniques. Elaine will usually focus treatment to the diaphragm, chest, shoulders, throat, neck, head and jaw, however, she may also advise you on general fitness and any specific exercise requirements you may have. In some cases she may also work our Principal Osteopath Adam to consider the whole body function including pelvic stability or tensions.

The benefits of a vocal massage include:

  • Improved posture, helping breath support,
  • Release of tension around the head, neck, jaw, tongue and larynx, helping with resonance, articulation and phonation,
  • Keeping the larynx in a normal, relaxed position.
