Have you had your muscles worked on because they ‘feel’ tight to the therapist, yet they never asked you? Unfortunately you’re not alone in this experience, and we decided to do something about it.
If we are replicating or creating a ‘useful’ sensation in the tissues, we know that the brain is on board with part of this healing process in the particular area being touched. Instead of pressure being the gauge of a successful treatment, we use this question to find out what you are really feeling. The binary nature of the answer you give us means we are either doing something useful, or not. If you feel we aren’t in a useful area/ recreating useful sensations, then our combined dialogue will guide the treatment to a more useful position. as our hands only tell part of the story.
This empowerment gives you back true control of your treatment, with one of our specialist team facilitating a powerful neurological dialogue between your brain and your soft tissue.
A Vocal Massage will therefore involve soft tissue work into the anatomy that supports your vocal, respiratory and digestive systems. Depending on the presentation of your symptoms, a treatment can work across these systems from head to toe.
There are some set protocol moves for TMJ dysfunction and for the maintenance of the voice professional, but usually our client centred feedback model takes the therapist where they need to go as safely and effectively as possible.
