During our treatment we regularly use the manual facilitation of the larynx (voice box massage).
A specialization within speech therapy that may only be performed by paramedics.
Manual facilitation is a massage of the larynx and throat and neck area. This approach aims to relax and improve muscle functions in the area of the floor of the mouth, larynx, neck and shoulders.
This massage is used for voice complaints, globus complaints, rehabilitation after surgery or simply as maintenance with a heavy voice load to prevent complaints.
Professional speakers and singers also make good use of this massage, and see this as "voice maintenance" to prevent voice complaints.
For an important presentation, audition, studio recording, or after a period when the voice was used a lot.
