Free Your Voice: Learn To Do Self Laryngeal Massage

Thursday 7th April 2022, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM (London Time)

Feeling confident doing laryngeal massage comes down to knowing what to touch, where to find it, when it’s helpful, why you’d want to, and how to know if it’s working.

This workshop will offer an introduction to laryngeal massage, a technique designed to help release tension for a clearer, more comfortable voice.

Starting with the basics of vocal anatomy and including tips to identify and landmark important laryngeal structures, it will include hands-on practice of the primary laryngeal massage techniques that voice clinicians use to facilitate the release of tension during voice therapy.

This course is for singing teachers and appropriately qualified clinical practitioners wishing to gain an understanding of self-massage.
