We have a list of devices we suggest which are outlined here (with links) on our blog. The device we were recommending up to this point was the LELO Siri original model but as it is no longer available, we have a number of other options listed.

We continue to work on a device designed specifically for the Vibrant Voice Technique, and look forward to sharing more news on that in the future.

 

Vibrant Voice Technique
Vibrant Voice Technique
Vibrant Voice is more than just the idea of applying a vibrator near your voice box. It’s a whole technique – a series of exercises that target the specific muscles that have a tendency to become tense and reduce vocal quality, and the “sweet spots” that can help enhance vocal resonance.

The exercises of the Vibrant Voice Technique fall into four categories: 1) reducing muscle tension, 2) stimulating vibration in and around the voice box, 3) enhancing resonance, and 4) energizing the articulators. If you’re curious to learn Vibrant Voice, we currently offer workshops and private coaching, and offer our How-To Guide as a companion to coaching.

David developed this technique specifically as a tool for the professional voice user. Therefore, many of the people we work with are singers, actors, and public speakers looking to improve their vocal performance.

Though we work with professional voice users, we’ve also received positive feedback from everyday speakers experiencing relief from vocal fatigue and tension. Additionally, we’ve shared our work with a few speech language pathologists who are interested in exploring the use of the technique to help those suffering from more serious vocal issues. If you’re experiencing pain, abnormal fatigue, roughness or persistent hoarseness, or if you have any concern that something may be wrong with your voice, you should consult a medical voice specialist before pursuing this technique.
David came up with the idea to use external vocal vibration when working with a friend and client, Coralie Cairns. Coralie came to see David a month after a case of laryngitis, because she hadn’t regained her ability to project her voice or speak for any length of time without suffering vocal fatigue. Weeks earlier, she’d gone to see an otolaryngologist who looked at her vocal folds via stroboscopy and confirmed that there was nothing functionally wrong in her larynx. David believed after observing Coralie and listening to her speak, that much of her fatigue and hoarseness might be attributable to tension in the small muscles around the larynx that had overcompensated during the laryngitis. He hoped to use manual laryngeal massage as a way of addressing the lingering tension. Like many others though, Coralie was uncomfortable with having her throat massaged or massaging it on her own. That’s when David got the idea to use a small personal massager to help. To learn more, watch David and Coralie interviewed on Alberta Primetime here.
At this point we have demonstrated this technique to over 700 people, and all of the feedback has been positive. However, we cannot guarantee the technique’s efficacy for every individual, as outlined in our medical disclaimer. If you have any safety concerns or if you have a pre-existing medical condition, you should consult your doctor before exploring the technique.
