Very often, I get the phone calls, (especially from the US), from the husbands or wives of the vocally effected individuals. They inquire about the Non-Surgical Voice Repair on behalf of their loved one and I, in a lot of times, am hearing and even suspecting that there is something wrong with their own voices. Since some people are not able to coherently express themselves outright at the beginning of the phone conversation, I presume that they inquire about themselves!
Of course, if I hear severe voice damage, I know that I am talking to the right person. It is quite peculiar that the spouse, with no voice problem per say, sounds like he/she has one! It seems, like when I travel to the UK, I also pick up a British accent. Also, when I receive the American clients from Buffalo New York or Texas, my Russian and Canadian accent gets mixed in with their American accent. It seems to be when one of the spouses has a voice problem and has obvious difficulty speaking, the other spouse is picking up the same manner of speech.
Once, I had a Voice Repair client who came to me from Florida; (Her video before and after my instruction is available on our website). From her own words, she was suffering with the voice damage for over 10 years and undergone 3 voice operations before she arrived to my studio She also told me that during that time, her (then 10 years old) son was born and he also was speaking with a lower, raspy voice, as he never heard his mother’s real voice.
Remember the story about the boy named Mowgli from The Jungle Book, who was raised by a pack of wolves, and was naturally howling like them, as he had never heard the human speech. That said, it probably would make sense for both spouses, or parents and their children for that matter, to arrive for the Voice Repair sessions so that the vocally healthy person could be present, even passively, in the sessions, to also acquire back his/hers normal command of the voice.
Needless to say, people who live side by side with people with any disability are greatly affected by the situation, emotionally and otherwise. I have seen the mother, who arrived with her adult daughter from the UK, being completely distraught and hurting for her child, sitting with tears in her eyes in my studio and watching her daughter struggling with her voice.
She was obviously emotionally hurt herself, as once before, she knew that her daughter had a beautiful classical Opera voice, which was brutally ruined by an incompetent vocal instruction offered to her daughter from one of the well-known arts Colleges in Britain. So sometimes, the rehab (including the vocal problems) could be, nevertheless, administered for the whole family to at least bring back the health and harmony of all parties involved.

Hi Everyone, Some of you are already familiar with the name of Aubrie Morris of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, USA who originally came to us in November 2019. She came to us with the diagnosis of Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD). Please read the beginning of Aubrie’s story by clicking the link below: https://www.vocalscience.com/aubrie-m-muscle-tension-dysphonia-survivor Her voice repair course and natural herbal treatment was supposed to be administered for 6 consecutive days in order for Aubrie to receive 30 hours of our revolutionary voice/vocal instruction by advocating by us our very own Vocal Science™ method. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish that course as Aubrie caught a cold and thus we were forced to cut our course short (24/26 hours). However, with the above said, her Muscle Tension Dysphonia disorder was almost gone by the time she left Canada. But, due to the pandemic, she was not able to see me until just recently. Due to that fact, waiting for almost a year and a h
Is your compromised voice your problem? The Answer is... The Problem Is YOU!! How so, you, my reader, may ask? Let’s find out, shall we? Dear reader, due to the confidentiality code, we will not be disclosing the name of the person of interest the story of whom is described below: A week ago, in our studio here in Toronto, a female in her late 30’s/early 40’s walked in ready to embark onto our introductory/exploratory session, concerning her voice disorder. She revealed that (some time ago) she was diagnosed with what’s called Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD). I asked her to tell me her story in more detail. And the more I spoke to her, the more I was amazed how this person could actually exist on this Earth and consider herself that her life was actually somewhat normal….? To her credit though, (looking quite shy and introverted) she was somewhat open to tell me about herself revealing her shortcomings….(about her voice and her life patterns in general). She volunteered to tell m
The Conclusion of the Year 2021: Accomplishments and Success vs. Challenges, Turbulence & Tribulations...
It's been still a pandemic year - with many openings and many closures, not to mention uncertainties and hard times in general. In our observation, people became more disturbed, definitely mentally as well as physically, and, nonetheless, more unstable than ever. Needless to say that it became much harder to convince them to get help and, nevertheless, to get them to actually embark on receiving help. Therefore, it became harder to provide any services to them, as a lot of those people have been (to say the least) distracted, worried and, moreover, depressed. For the record; Needless to say, that they, to begin with, have become much more suspicious, disbelieving and utterly insecure. Simply speaking unstable and, definitely (what I call) out of balance - on every conceivable level. However, with the above said, we have overall achieved a lot of success with people who were more stable, or at least have been understanding about who we are and what we could do for them via ou
