Vocal Science™ - Voice Restoration and Life-Altering Experience!

When people inquire about their speaking or singing voice restoration, they think only about their voice and nothing else which could be related to the latter. They do not realize that the voice is an essential part of their anatomy and a very important tool for communication (speaking or singing). However, there are by far more benefits (in this case) to non-surgical voice repair then just the voice itself.

Those regular people (non-singers) who have speech problems, usually come to our studio/clinic completely (by my definition) out-of-balance - Mentally, physically, emotionally and, of course, vocally.

They possess a lot of problems and on every conceivable level: 

  • Some have problems with weight - either too skinny or, on the contrary,  with quite excessive body mass.
  • Some of them possess bad habits like smoking, drinking, drug use and other unhealthy addictions.

Needless to say, they are not only physically unfit, but, nevertheless, mentally and emotionally as well.

As I mentioned before in my previous blogs and articles, some of our potential “doomed” clients literally do not understand the parameters of their own bodies. For non-surgical voice repair, as a supplement for the greater healing of the vocal anatomy, I do use natural herbs and remedies; and one of them requires to put some drops in the ears to get rid of excessive mucus from the upper and lower respiratory system. Believe it or not, even my existing clients cannot find their ears without looking in a mirror..?

How pathetic is that?

Pathetic enough to the point that I “lose my own speech” (no pun intended)… LOL!

The above-mentioned people evidently have no interconnection, let alone they possess any “relationship” between their mind, body and therefore… their voice! Needless to say, their motor skills are completely compromised…
Evidently, their minds are not trained (unfortunately from early childhood) to give a command to those aforementioned motor skills to achieve even a very simple drill. The Vocal Science™ Method requires a complete integration and synergy of the mind, body and voice as a final outcome.

Without the above, I would not be able to put the person in needed balance; and thus, will not be able to achieve proper voice support (via the use of the abdominal muscles), structure (which requires a full identification of the vertical and horizontal parameters of one’s body), lift and then placement of the voice in one’s sinus cavities (vocal chambers), and lastly, as a result, the projection of that sound (voice) into the aimed destination.

By the way, with the voice-lift, we are also achieving a non-surgical “face lift”. Over many years of practice, we’ve witnessed (vis our efforts) our clients becoming not only feeling much healthier then before our intervention, but also started to look (and needless to say, sound) much younger.
- Below is an example of the above statement in the form of two testimonials - 



  • “I feel extremely blessed that I found Diana and was able to travel to Newmarket from where I live near Ottawa and experience her techniques.  First we used Diana's vocal science technique and her herbal remedies to work on my speaking voice.  Although this as a significant amount of effort on both our parts, the end result has been a great joy for me!  Friends I have known me since I was a teenager have commented on my voice, which has been repaired to the point that I sound 40 years younger!” - Full version of this text can be found HERE: 
  • “Too Funny – I enrolled about 2 years ago with my banks telephone banking and you can use your voice as your password. It has worked before but now it doesn’t recognize my voice! Will probably have to do a new recording with them :) :)”

However, the above is only possible to be achieved upon design; whereas the mentioned components will be working in complete synchronicity between each other.

Due to the emotional instability of the majority of people with voice problems, their confidence is, understandably, quiet shaken off.

Some of them understand the concept faster then others; some slower…

But a lot of them are scared that they will not be able to learn and achieve what it requires in order to claim their lives back with, nevertheless, the healthy voice and spirit.


My command to them would be:

“Don’t be afraid to open up a new world for yourself!”
“Remember, your voice is your tool for ultimate communication”.

After your voice gets restored, you can also learn how you can use your voice successfully for your personal and business relationships and other needs…

On that note, we would like to introduce you to  a separate, however totally related, voice & communication enhancement course which is called The Total Communicator.


The above-mentioned course is a natural extension of the Non-Surgical Voice Repair course which also applies to singers, as they, as well, should be able to tell their stories through music.

Madness to… Vocal Science?? I Would Not Create It On Purpose Even If I Could.

As technology progresses, unfortunately, human beings are regressing exponentially…

How sad is that? Sad indeed!



In my roaster of clients, I possess (as far as I am concerned) the best clients they could be nowadays…

However, some of them evidently cannot “walk and chew the gum at the same time”!

In order for the Vocal Science™ method and technique to get “implemented into the human being” and make their voices to work upon design and upon “command”, it requires the integration and synergy between various components in order to “instil” a wholesome mechanism in one’s psyche, which would allow the human voice (speaking and singing) to work in its fullest capacity possible and with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy.

The intellectual understanding of such mechanism and its interconnection with the motor skills, will allow the voice to get in balance; and thus become to work in coordination and in congruency with the person's physical parameters (hight and width). The abdominal muscles also need to be engaged into the equation in order to produce the support for the lift of the sound off of the physical body. With the quick mouth breath intake, the needed air (fuel) will be produced to achieve the flight of the sound (voice) which, nevertheless, will be directed to its aimed destination.

Unfortunately, some of my clients cannot interconnect the needed visualization (of how the sound travels via their height, width and centre of their body’s build) with the motor skills and the air intake, without which, the lift and the flight of the sound is not possible.

Usually, those who are now adults, never participated in any activities when they were children; and that shows instantaneously. Their mind, not ever being trained in anything outside of school curriculums, simply does not give proper command to their motor skills and, in our case, it doesn’t not interconnect with the abdominal muscles and the air which separates the physical body from the sound.

My school is operating now on its 35th year and, unfortunately, I have to state that I never seen so many mentally, emotionally, physically and thus, needless to say, vocally incompetent, people. We all know that once monkeys experienced evolution, they then became human beings. My biggest fear right now is that the opposite effect might take place… I however hope that at least in my lifetime, the latter will not happen…?

_____

The second part of the equation is when I am receiving e-mails and phone calls from the potential clients…

Toronto Star once written an article about me and my method; and their author stated there that my teaching, and the method itself, is “definitely not for the faint of heart”. I added that the Vocal Science™ method and technique is definitely not for people with a below-average IQ either.

One of my clients from the previous years, who actually was quite profound, said: “Diana… Your method and approach is actually very simple (like everything genius usually is), but definitely not easy at all!”

The above is very true and it, no doubt, has been designed for a regular human being to comprehend.

However, some of the e-mails and phone calls, I should really display to the general public for their reader’s digest and for a humorous break (to spice up their lives a little bit LOL). However, I always say that “it would be funny if it wasn’t so sad…”

Sometimes it makes me wonder what I would do with that person if he/she registered for my course. My future-doomed client would most likely be unable to get the simple understanding of what this quite unique method and technique would involve. Their mental “puzzle” is simply not working - just like a Rubik’s Cube which sometimes is quite difficult to align”. However, for the mentally-fit person, it should be simple to solve.

To give you and example, let’s say I speak about “A.B.C” and presume that the person on the other end is with me on the topic. All of the sudden, that person begins to speak about “X.Y.Z”, which throws me completely off of my presentation topic. After that I desperately try to put my “communicator in question” on the right track… But little bit I’ve known… Now, my partner-in-conversation suddenly begins to speak about “1.2.3”…?

Funny! - you, my reader, may exclaim. Not really… That’s what I call madness.

I do feel very sorry for those “quite-incapacitated” people who cannot sustain a simple conversation and comprehend the gist of it. 

So by that time, there is already not a doubt in my mind, that if they somehow will even end up in my studio, it would be “hell on Earth” for both of us to achieve any tangible results. Unfortunately, it’s getting worse and worse with respect of people’s understanding and comprehension of what’s involved to become a good speaker, singer, or furthermore, to gain back their lost voices. 

In fact, the person’s voice (broken or not) is the least of my concern. The person’s aptitude and attitude is my biggest concern, not to mention their (at least remote) mental and physical fitness, which will contribute a great deal in health and, of course, if needed, restoration of their voice.

To conclude:

I am still trying to be optimistic and am hoping for human being’s progress forward. 

I am hoping that, in some point in time, they will take their eyes and hands off of their computers (looking for instant-gratification) and, like before, will become physically active, acquire a positive attitude as well as trust in proper (manually-induced) education and the legitimate educators for that matter…

The voice, I can definitely access provided that the above- described components are present and when the person, (concerned about their voice), really would want to be helped!

For The Love of Voice and… Relationships!! - Vocal Science…





We fix not only voices, but we also mend broken hearts, wounded souls & spirits and… nevertheless, relationships! Why relationships, you my reader, may ask?

The answer is, while the voice is getting healthier and thus stronger, the confidence of the sufferer also becomes stronger.  A lot of voice repair cases are emotionally induced and a lot of them are also caused by (supposed-to-be) the closest people they are related to.

How ironic - you may wonder…
Ironic indeed!

On this note, let me tell you my own story: In 1989/1990, my own voice suddenly and, I thought, without any reason, seized.
Naturally, not knowing then what I know now, I was really puzzled as to why something like that would happen to me out of all people?

I knew that I always was promoting a healthy voice; and thus, could not attribute its failure to poor vocal technique, or anything like that.
After long suffering an investigation how to deal with it (via trial and error), I realized that my very unsuccessful and emotionally abusive marriage was actually the prime cause of it.
Given all of the above I finally got introduced to, and educated in, the holistic approach to the human body. 
And, of course, I added to the equation of the latter my already quite extensive knowledge about the voice.

My thyroid had locked on me. In the holistic teaching, the thyroid represents suppressed emotions; and thus, as a consequence, the voice is unable to get through the vocal box and out on the surface in order to produce a sound.
I healed my vocal anatomy with the natural herbs and remedies; and then, of course, applied my already-thriving voice/vocal technique which, in the later days, was named the Vocal Science Method, and then in 2002, it earned its trademark with the Government of Canada.
Interestingly enough that my own relationship with my ex-husband, from that point on, started improving exponentially…?

How so, you may ask?

It took me some time to think about it and I came to the conclusion that the abusive man who I was married to was actually a very weak man.
He was pushing his superiority complex on me, while concurrently creating my inferiority complex. So my spirit was shut down and my stress-level was rising exponentially.

With the latter, my voice had become compromised.

When I regained my voice via the use of my technique and the application of the natural herbal (and some homeopathic) remedies, my confidence was reestablished - I became stronger and “got back on the hoarse”.

Once my “beloved” ex-husband witnessed my newly-found strength, he suddenly became very attentive and even loving again…

However, me by nature, possessing a very analytical mind, had already then the understanding that the men like him are only good when their women are strong and vibrant.

So, God forbid, that the woman they are married to will fall ill or get in an accident, they will be first to leave her and never offer a helping hand.

By the way, presently, I have been working with two women who have almost identical stories as mine.
Both ended up with voice repairs, primarily because of their situations with their husbands. 

I predicted for both of them that once their voices will become healthier and stronger, their confidence will be regained and their hearts and souls will be somewhat mended. 
On that premise, their spouses will run right back to them and even will become (one more time again) romantic, just like before when they were dating them…
However, I also warned them that this effect will only last until the next breakdown (not with voice) but, God forbid, on any other level and with anything else.

Unfortunately, I know it first hand via my own experience and over 43 years of teaching and consulting thousands upon thousands of people.
It may sound negative to you, but with such awareness, it is better to be safe then sorry, shall we say.

However, I wish all of my clients, and all of my potential clients, to enjoy their relationships while they last; but at the same time, I advise everyone to keep their guard up and, needless to say, look after yourself - your heart, your spirit (needless to say, your voice) and your health overall!

My wish for you:
Be good, be healthy and be well!

Is It Possible To Conquer Serious Voice/Vocal Problems in 20 Hours (Not Years) Employing The Vocal Science™ Method?

Beyond the Reasonable doubt...
What is this blog actually about?



We just would like to bring to your attention that we successfully completed a speech and singing voice repair course with Alberto “Maui” Mauiztic from Cozumel, Mexico.
Please check out his feedback after only 20 hours (protocol is 30) of our very unique instruction and natural herbal treatment.

See below
:
“I cannot state enough how much Diana's teachings have helped me, I came to see her after more than 3 months of vocal pain, strain and absolute uncertainty of what my voice would be like in the near or even distant future... A singer who cannot speak for more than an hour without resenting it for the next few days... imagine that!

Despite the fact that she sounded so reassuring and knowledgeable on the telephone it was a leap of faith to trust some unknown lady 3,000 km away from me and get on a plane to see her. If you've been suffering like me (and probably even more) you have been promised so much by so many people (voice therapists, ENTs, the internet) but nothing has definitely helped you so it gets harder and harder to trust. When I arrived I couldn't believe I was actually there, but luckily I was.

From the start she knew what she was doing and that brought in me the confidence I hadn't had in a while. When we started the exercises I just thought "this is it, either I'm gonna completely break my voice or I'm gonna try this and get better"... luckily it was the latter. Almost by magic the exercises started relaxing my vocal cords and the pain started to slowly fade, it didn't disappear completely the first day but I was able to talk almost normally for the first time in a long while without a dreadful sense of "I'm gonna regret this so much tomorrow" as it used to be.

Diana is a visionary who by I don't know what fate of destiny created a radically new way of using one's voice, a way that goes against almost everything I had been taught correct singing or even speaking should be about... and you know what? it works!

The next few days the improvement kept on going helped by the herbal therapy she provides and the meticulosity of the exercises. Like she constantly says "It's simple, but it's not easy", and boooooy if that's true!!, it requires practice and a lot of concentration to be able to make all the elements of correct voice production work together to position one's voice where it should be in order to let go of the strain on the vocal cords but she is very encouraging throughout the whole process. If you are ever at a loss... my advice would be don't think too much about it and just try it until you get the feel of it.

I enjoyed a lot my experience learning from Diana, she is a generous and bright person with a really strong personality who knows her stuff like no other... of course, she invented it! Everyone was super nice and I'm thankful to them all: Diana, her assistant Jamie, her husband Chris and even little yellow Juke, Diana's little funny pet/car.

In the end I returned home with a singing voice that still needs to practice before it goes back onstage but with so many valuable lessons for the future as a professional voice user... I better start saving up for the "international celebrity package" which I just made up but which I'm certain that Diana, if given enough time, can deliver!”

-    Maui.

We hope that the above will inspire you even more to embark on our speech and singing courses and natural herbal & homeopathic treatments.

Vocal Science™ Method: Welcome to our Voice Mechanics Repair Shop!



At The Royans Professional Vocal School/The Royans Institute for Non-Surgical Voice Repair, we naturally get a large number of inquiries related to voice/vocal problems, issues and disorders.

The majority of people who actually inquire about our services truly believe that the problem with the voice is physical as, in their opinion, something must have gone wrong with their voice and the sound; and now, via speech therapy or a vocal operation, they believe that they will solve all of their voice problems and thus will sound the same as before…or even better.

Unfortunately, only the minority of voice disorder sufferers do realize that conventional speech therapy, or even a vocal operation for that matter, would actually change anything…

Due to the level of their intelligence, they do have the understanding that something went wrong with their vocal mechanics; which, nevertheless, have to be fixed and put back intact and, needless to say, back in balance. Easier said then done, however…

But at least those intelligent individuals are basically on the right track, as they do realize that there is no change without change. And even if vocal surgery is performed, post-surgery care has to be administered.

Let’s take, for example, Adele’s situation:


Her vocal surgery was a state of the art operation, performed by a well-renowned ENT surgeon from Boston, USA.

The renowned doctor performed the removal of a very complicated polyp which actually required a “virtuoso’s” micro surgery -  and yes, after the fact, Adele’s throat and the rest of her vocal anatomy was virtually clean and like new.

You may think, my reader: What else anybody with such complicated vocal disorder, would desire…?

The answer to the above is, nevertheless…, the whole new application of the speaking and singing voice! As without the described-above changes, the same vocal problem, without a doubt, will take place again…

Surely enough, Adele (not so long ago) acquired the next vocal problem. Due to that, she was forced to cancel yet another tour and had to stop singing altogether. If (before the first breakdown of her voice) she would’ve used a proper technique which is actually designed to take the pressure off of the vocal box, off of the vocal cords, her vocal problems would’ve never occurred in the first place.

Also if (after the fact) she would finally acquire a non-invasive approach to voice mechanics, she would not, yet again (a second time around), succumbed to a vocal injury.

The moral of the above statement is:


Take care of your vocal mechanics and prevent the nasty injury of the vocal anatomy which could inflict on your whole voice/vocal career and your life in general.

However, if the above had already happened, remember that by just working on the “Instrument” and not on the “Player”, the cause of the actual vocal problem will not be addressed; and, in that situation, those nasty symptoms associated with the vocal injury will just be minimized.

Figuratively speaking, when a car (God forbid) gets in an accident, it usually does not get towed to a body shop first… Logically, it would be right to assume that the mechanics of the above-mentioned vehicle should be restored first… shouldn’t it? Once that is done, then the next thing to do would be to work on the body of the car and make it nice and shiny once again.

However, the latter will not be able to take you places. Instead, it will be parked in your garage and it will be, at best, just looking pretty… However, all of it is easier said then done.

To restore somebody’s voice mechanics, reacquires very detailed and very intense work. As firstly, the “virus” from one’s “human computer” has to be deleted and a new “software” (in this case, the Vocal Science™ Technique) has to be “installed”.

Now, once the “human computer” is ready to operate, the voice disorder sufferer has to be taught how to extract the “print out” he/she is looking for – first with their mentor’s help, and then on their own. At that time, the mechanical aspect of it should be completely intact.

Now there is a time to work on the artistic side of it:

The “skeleton” has been built… so it is time to “dress it up”!
It will be up to you, my reader, to choose the “fashion” (style) in which your “skeleton” will reside. So the creation of the above will be totally owned by you!

Remember… You cannot “dress up” a ghost!
