Vocal Massage is becoming extremely popular with singers, actors and public speakers.
The massage involves working the muscles in the shoulders, neck, throat and face with gentle pressured therapy, to relieve tension, flush toxins and to free muscle adhesions.
The upper back and neck are massaged, as tightness in these areas can migrate and become a headache, eye ache and pain the jaw and ears, as well as the reducing mobility in the neck.
In the face, the jaw muscles are worked on as well as around the lips and nose. The muscle fibres in the throat are also manipulated, bringing the larynx into a more efficient posture. This eases the vocal cords and can increase the vocal range.
Also, the muscles in the chest, intercostal muscles (between the ribs) and diaphragm can be worked to help increase lung capacity and reduce restrictive tissues.
This type of therapy can be uncomfortable, especially for the first few treatments until you get used to the feeling of throat manipulation. The treatments are delicate and worked slowly, however- If you do feel discomfort, David Jenkins will be happy to change the technique to accommodate the client.
