Warm-ups as Remedy

When your voice is tired and irritated from over use or misuse, there are several remedies that help it recover faster. None of these remedies, however, take the place of seeking professional assistance if your vocal problems are chronic or serious. You can seek assistance from a good vocal coach and/or an otolaryngologist or ENT(a medical doctor who is Ear Nose and Throat specialist).

Warm-Ups as a Remedy

As covered in my Vocal Warm-Ups and Cool-Downs CD, a neck and throat massage can bring oxygen into your tired muscles by stimulating circulation and blood flow. I also have a number of gentle vocal exercises on the CD which use vibration therapeutically to increase circulation, reduce vocal fold puffiness, rejuvenate your voice box and improve your performance.

While vocal rest is sometimes the correct choice, more often than not, knowing how to rejuvenate your voice with therapeutic vibration can bring about better and faster results.

Gentle humming at a low volume with your lips lightly together, working your voice back and forth little by little over a small range of notes can also be therapeutic. While vocal warm-ups can be used as a remedy, it is better to consistently use warm-ups and good vocal technique to sing powerfully with endurance thereby avoiding vocal fatigue. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

In future posts, we’ll explore herbal remedies for a tired voice.
