We will provide useful information about tips to keep vocal cords healthy, diaphragm/breathing tips, general body ache Q and A, stretching, pre- and post-show warm up and cool down, and make sure that wherever you are in the nation, we can get you (and keep you) healthy!
Dancers…. flexibility, strength, counter motions to repetitive moves, foot health, alignment and so much more
Singers… relaxation techniques, nutrition advice for inflammation, sickness, etc…. and taking care of positioning your ribs, neck, and body for the best sound
Actors…. repetitive motion, even if it is not dance, still takes a toll on your body. Understand that you are respected, and deserve to be treated and taken care of, even if it a straight stage show, and not a musical.
Musicians… your body is a machine! Your music can only happen when your arms, wrists, fingers, mouth, TMJ, shoulders and more are healthy. And, sitting, standing, conducting, and more…. we need to keep posture in mind.
There is so much info to prove to producers, company, stage management, and more, about how prevention is the key to a happy, healthy cast, and one that has longevity. Not only for a productive cast, but also to not have medical work comp claims pile up! If they knew how much it took to train new instead of keep the current, life would be great!
Talent will take you to the audition, perseverance will take you to the stage. But… only a healthy body will keep you there. Let us help!
