What is voice therapy?
The aim of voice therapy is to get rid of or improve problems with the creation of vocal sounds (phonation) in the voice box (larynx). After completing therapy, your voice should be stronger and sound like it did before. Voice therapy can also be used for prevention – to train your voice in order to avoid these problems altogether.
Voice therapy includes various individually tailored exercises that can be learned from a speech therapist, voice coach or respiratory therapist. In Germany, statutory health insurers typically cover the costs of voice therapy if it is necessary and has been prescribed by a family doctor or an ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist.
