I am a professional, classical singer, who recently was diagnosed with partial paralysis of my left vocal cord, due to a viral infection. This condition can be devastating to a person in my business. The symptoms include severe laryngitis, which can last anywhere from six months to a year, or longer. I am convinced that my treatment at New Realm Acupuncture has significantly shortened my rehabilitation period, as medical tests (done with laryngoscope) have clearly shown rapid and dramatic improvement in the function of the vocal cord. My otolaryngologist has in fact told me that I am “lucky,” and that, based on my quick progress; I can expect 100% recovery from my condition, with continued therapy. I would recommend Chinese acupuncture and acupressure to any voice professional in need of healing therapy. It is painless, very effective, and a wise investment of time and money.
