Vocal Disorders and Acupuncture

The vast majority of vocal issues respond extraordinarily well to acupuncture and Chinese herbalism. Clients seek out treatment for the entire range of voice issues ranging from acute laryngitis to laryngal nodes, cord hemorrhaging to paralysis.

Many professional singers come to the Northside Holistic Center to first resolve a voice-threatening issue and then often use acupuncture, preventatively, to improve their range and quality and prevent future damange. We have been fortunate enough to work with well known singers from the Lyric Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Hamilton, Wicked, Jersey Boys, and many more. 

Some of the vocal issue we treat include:

  • Hoarseness 
  • Laryngitis
  • Laryngospasm
  • Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis or Laryngeal Papillomatosis 
  • Spasmodic Dysphonia
  • Vocal Cord Nodules, Polyps, and Cysts
  • Vocal Cord Paralysis 
  • Vocal Fold Paralysis
  • Laryngeal Atypia
  • Reflux Laryngitis
  • Reinke’s Edema
  • Vocal Fold Granuloma
  • Vocal Fold Scarring
