This is a highly specialised and unique service that can benefit both professional and non-professional voice users as well as those experiencing jaw tension and/or pain.
There are many factors which can influence the muscles surrounding the larynx and jaw. When something disrupts the muscular balance in this area, the result can be detrimental to joint mobility, vocal fold mobility and optimal voice use. Thus causing jaw tension, vocal restriction, pain, asymmetry and at times associated headaches.
This treatment aims to identify where these sources of restriction are arising from and treat them effectively with highly skilled manual techniques to mobilise the larynx and surrounding soft tissues. This in turn has a huge amount of positive impact on symptoms of jaw pain, restricted movement and voice quality.
Nikki and Kiran have worked closely alongside professional opera, pop and musical theatre singers for years helping to optimise their vocal performance. They have also aided many non-professional voice users (for example primary teachers, barristers and lecturers) in restoring their voice for sustained use in their workplace.
Often the overall management is a team effort and Nikki and Kiran have a network of highly respected ENT surgeons, SALTs, vocal coaches and singing teachers they can collaborate with if indicated.
