Is it Getting Hot in Here?

Steam… it’s cheap…it’s easy and it is completely underrated!  As a singer or public speaker, taking care of your voice is essential for maintaining its health and ensuring that you can perform at your best. One of the ways that you can do this is by incorporating a daily steaming routine into your vocal care regimen. Here are three benefits to steaming daily:

1. Hydration

Steaming helps to hydrate the vocal cords by increasing blood flow and delivering moisture to the area. This can help to prevent dryness and irritation, which can lead to vocal strain and damage.

2. Improved Vocal Performance

By hydrating the vocal cords, steaming can also help to improve your vocal performance. When your vocal cords are well-hydrated, they are better able to vibrate freely and produce a clear, resonant tone. This can help you to hit those high notes with ease and avoid vocal fatigue.

3. Relaxation

Steaming can also be a relaxing and soothing experience. The steam can help to loosen any tension or tightness in the muscles surrounding the vocal cords, allowing for a more comfortable and natural singing experience. Additionally, the act of steaming can be a meditative and calming practice that can help to reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can negatively impact your vocal performance.

In a world where there seems to be a huge price tag attached to anything for your health, you can sigh a big breath of relief that this solution may only cost you the price of a facial steamer.  And even if that’s not in the budget then a mug of hot water and a towel to go over your head will work too!
