 What vibrator are you using?

We have a list of devices we suggest which are outlined here. The device we were originally recommending was the LELO Siri original model but as it is no longer available, we have a number of other options listed. 
 
How do I do it?
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 encourage you to reach out to one of our Official Instructors.

Who should use this technique?
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.
 
How did you come up with this idea?
David came up with the idea to use external vocal vibration when working with a client who came to him a month after a case of laryngitis. This client hadn’t regained her ability to project her voice or speak for long 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. After observing the client and listening to her speak, David believed 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, she 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... and Vibrant Voice Technique was born.
