Laryngeal massage …a complementary approach to managing voice disorders

Our final video upload from the recent  ‘Dysphonia~let’s talk about it’ forum, provides an overview of laryngeal massage, a complementary therapy approach to managing voice disorders.

Rachael Cunningham is an accomplished Opera Singer and a specialised myofascial massage therapist. The founder of Vocalease Massage in Sydney, Rachael works alongside laryngologists and speech therapists to help in the management of dysphonia. While she acknowledges that the technique in itself is not curative, it supports good voice use and helps to reduce vocal strain caused by competing muscles, which often occur secondary to a chronic voice disorder.

Rachael starts her presentation with a brief  story of myofacial release massage as it is being used at the Vanderbilt Voice Centre in Nashville, U.S, before sharing her local experience of laryngeal massage and multidisciplinary approach to voice management.

    1. Hi Sue – yes, we hear you 😦 your frustrations are shared.
      There are a few practitioners in your area so take a look at the directory page or alternatively email and I will try to put you in touch with someone.
      Don’t forget the online support in facebook group ‘dysphonia let’s talk about it’ – Keep smiling.
