For at least the last 25 years, we have been specializing in extreme voice disorders such as:
- Muscle Tension Dysphonia
- Spasmodic Dysphonia
- Polyps & Nodules on the vocal cords
- Cysts & Lesions on the vocal cords and the throat
- Acid Reflux effecting the vocal box
- Sulcus Vocalis (enlarged gap between the vocal folds)
- Strained Vocal Cords
- Vocal Cord Paresis
- Partially Lost Voice
– And that’s just to name a few.
Both regular speaking people and or singers could possess the above-described vocal injuries.
As strange as it sounds, the regular speaking people are taking their injuries much harder then the actual singers.
In fact, in a lot of cases, singers may still have their speaking voices somewhat intact; and therefore, it is not that detrimental for them just to lose their singing voice capacity then for speakers to completely lose their tool for communication. Of course, no matter how you slice it, speakers and singers are both greatly effected by their voice/vocal injury.
The speakers, in a lot of times, feel that their lives are over, as it is difficult for them to communicate. They often begin to learn sign language and/or rely on writing on a white board in order to be heard and understood. Moreover, they are usually, for years, have been trying different speech therapists and vocal coaches; but nevertheless, evidently, always to no avail.
I would like to quote one of our recent Non-Surgical Voice Repair Clients who had said in her Post Course Letter to us:
“It’s such a relief to have someone to go to if I have issues with my voice, as before I felt so alone and had no idea what to do, so many thanks”.
This particular person had suffered with quite significant voice loss, severe pain in the throat, and had to live with the diagnosis of Muscle Tension Dysphonia for 5 years.
This young beautiful adult was suggested to stop speaking for good, go on disability and find a job which does not require any speaking. Before she came to us, she was ready to quit University, prior quitting the high school choir and the part-time job, which had required her to speak with the customers.
Her Mom and her flew to us for over 30 hours to obtain our unique instruction and natural holistic treatment.
By the end of her 50 hour ordeal, not only was she able to speak with clear announced and pronounced voice (as her mom qualified as a radio voice), but she was also able to embark upon my regular singing exercises (designed for singers with no vocal damage) and a piece of the song “Can’t help Falling In Love” by Elvis.
That was our Triumph!!
No doubts this beautiful girl regained her speaking and even (partially) her singing voice (partially only due to the lack of time), and has already begun to reclaim her life back and will continue to do so for days to come. As far as we are concerned, one more life had been salvaged and reclaimed with very hard work – but with a very high reward in the end.
“Although it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, and there were many obstacles along the way, I completed 50 hours with Diana because in the end it was worth it.“
On that note, we would say – Way to go Girl!
The Best is Yet to Come!
