Voice therapists from the Voice and Speech Laboratory share alternative approaches to voice care and training, including body and mind work. They also provide guidance in terms of evaluating the claims of various supplements and medicinals. They also share some updated information on hydration and hands-on experience with laryngeal massage techniques.
