Vocal massage is a unique treatment to help with breathing and performance of the voice. Essential for singers, performers, public speakers, athletes or anybody wanting to improve in this area. If you are putting your voice through stress on a regular basis, vocal massage is vital to ensure you can continue performing at your best and to prevent any more serious conditions from arising in the future.
The treatment targets the diaphragm, larynx and surrounding muscles of the jaw, neck, ribcage and spine. After your first vocal massage you can already expect to feel more ‘free and open’, with a deeper connection to the muscles involved in breathing, speaking & singing. We are also able to provide advice and tips on how best to look after your voice following on from the session.
As well as completing studies under the UK’s first vocal massage course we have been working regularly with Kathy Brooke, a professional singer and vocal coach. By combining our therapy skills with her knowledge of vocal coaching and performance issues we have been able to develop the best possible treatment.
Kathy is a fantastic singer and teacher so if you are in need of either we highly recommend you take a look at her website – www.kathybrooke.co.uk.
Many elements of this treatment have also proven very effective in helping with anxiety. If this is something you are interested in then please contact us to discuss your requirements further. We are always able to adjust any treatment to suit your needs.
The lowest part of a vocal massage is working from below the ribcage, so you may wear whatever trousers/leggings/short you are comfortable in. For women, a regular bra is recommended so that your therapist can as you to undo the clasp when necessary to work with the back of the ribcage and thoracic spine. You will of course also be draped with a towel at all times to cover areas that are not being worked on.

An incredibly effective treatment. The combination of targeted areas relating to breathing, performance and the production of sound works extremely well. As somebody who has experienced vocal issues in the past, I think I am well qualified to say just how beneficial vocal massage is. These treatments are now an essential part of my regular routine – I really cannot recommend it highly enough!
