Below is the complete story (including medical diagnosis) of Jon S, of Detroit, USA
Jon S of Detroit USA, came to us in the early part of this year stating exactly what the title reveals. Nevertheless, Jon was a musician and singer for most of his adolescent and his adult life.
About 20 years ago, Jon began experiencing some vocal problems (vocal cord strain, vocal fatigue and, discovered-by-me, what appeared to be broken cartilage somewhere in his vocal anatomy and in close proximity to his vocal cords). It came to the point that he was contemplating quitting the music business altogether – especially after he was extremely disappointed with visiting so-called top vocal coaches and even some speech therapists and speech pathologists. He spent a lot of money, but with no avail. Unfortunately for Jon, nobody knew how to recover his quite lower throat-positioned voice. I can compare it with the person who had drowned (like Whitney Houston and her daughter) in the bathtub. Jon’s voice, thankfully enough, did not “drown” too deeply.
So, with my knowledge, experience and expertise, it took only 10 to 12 hours of instruction and light treatment via natural herbal remedies, to recover his voice and “bring it to the surface”, so to speak. After that, we had spent the remaining part of the 20-hour course on actually teaching him how to sing properly (using the right application of his voice, while concurrently employing my absolutely unique and revolutionary vocal technique); which in turn, and nonetheless, allows the human speaking and singing voice to work in its fullest capacity possible and with no pain or strain on the vocal anatomy whatsoever.
It is a proven and well-known fact that the Vocal Science(TM) Method and technique does guarantee our clients the health and safety of the speaking and singing voice for a lifetime! Jon’s case was fairly easy for me to solve.
People who come to me with much more difficult voice/vocal disorders would definitely need more time and effort to be employed (from both parties); as opposed to Jon, some of them had, unfortunately, “drowned” their voices to the point of reaching the “bottom of the ocean”, metaphorically speaking. Needless to say, it is vastly different from “drowning in the bathtub”…
The above is specifically addressed to people who have been diagnosed with an intermediate voice disorder called Muscle Tension Dysphonia, and It is even more so addressed to people who possess a quite severe disorder which is called Spasmodic Dysphonia…
10 years after his ordeal with health and voice professionals, Jon (for the last time) decided to seek help one more time again and stumbled upon our organization. He came to us two times to obtain (in total, 20 hours of instruction and light natural herbal treatment).
After the first 10 hours, Jon exclaimed:
“Diana, I am looking forward to our next session together. With your guidance, I have made some noticeable improvements since my first time working with you and am working my way back to heal my voice from the damage I’ve inflicted upon myself after singing improperly all these years. See you soon!”Jon S
After the next 10 hours, Jon revealed:
Hi Diana, I was singing today and said to myself, ‘that sounds pretty freaking good! Holy crap!– Jon S
So one more time again, we saved someone’s soul and someone’s voice… whereas everyone else had failed to realize Jon’s dream to get him back on stage to do what he loves most.
