Suppression on pain and thoughts

April 13, 2014

This is a natural part of the mind.    In case of CMP, pain can be suppressed a long time.  Tingling and other body signals are ignored.

If excessive pain builds up, then the suppression is overwhelmed.

Heat pads and CMP

April 13, 2014

In my case, Elastogel heat pads for knee, thigh, cranial.   Also, a shoulder heat jacket.    These really do work to reduce the taut muscles, so to then stretch the adhesions.   Also reduce the irritations of taut myofascia.

David Wise’s book, “A Headache in the Pelvis” claims that the taut muscles and adhesions irritates the pelvis, causing most of chronic prostatitis syndrome.   I agree, and his book lends evidence to how CMP further works.

Adhesions, tight muscles, trigger points

April 13, 2014

Left thight rear   — feel like ripples of strands.   These are adhesions.

Lear thigh side — apparently had very tight muscle band.   Feels hard.

Throat– taut muscle band and trigger points.


Myofascia roller cylinders and stick rollers

April 13, 2014

I didn’t find very useful.    Perhaps my myofascia was just too tight.

Handheld thumper massage thumper was useful.

Heat pads and then massage thumper or massage were helpful.

Diaphragm breathing and acid reflux

November 26, 2013

As proper supported diaphragm breathing pushes the diaphragm (and also esophagus) downward, the stomach acid will flow into the esophagus and irritate acid reflux.

1. Don’t eat before singing.

2. Don’t drink carbonated drinks with caffeine (most carbonated drinks have caffeine).

3. Don’t drink caffeine.

If must sing, then use an antiacid.   These usually last 30 to 60 minutes, so will be very useful for singing and diaphragm breathing while with food in stomach.

Lower back and pelvis as fulcrum

July 26, 2013

Source of prana and location of tan tien.

Is the base support for most of upper body and is the fulcrum point between upper and lower.

This must be in correct position and move correctly.  Otherwise, there will always be lots of tight tissues.

Also, this is the foundation for freely moving spine, which should be freely moving with the music and rhythm.

This part is also needed to coordinate between legs and upper body.

Making changes and philosophy

July 15, 2013

Making changes involve lots of factors.   The body and mind works in a certain way and a number of steps in its control can affect how changes are done.

VocalPosture deals with a slight sliver in all this.   Vocal tensions that are caused by structural and reinforced by emotional tension.

In solving a challenge, one has to understand the cause of the problem.   We’re just dealing with a small portion of the many possible problems.

We are claiming though that this problem is very common, and such claim is supported by several ancient texts.

Aging and lower vocal pitch

July 15, 2013

Some possible causes:

1. Muscles lose their tonicity.   But this should not be significant if practicing regularly.

2. Slight bit of acid reflux weakens tissue sensitivity and control.   One reason proton inhibitors help with singing tone.

3. Acid reflux causes mucus production which muffles the sound.

4. How does shortening of body affect this?


Anyone know?

Exercises and aging

July 6, 2013

Good example, frontman for Asleep at the Wheel.   Though in his sixties, still working as singer.

Important to upkeep your body’s fitness.

Back telling don’t touch hurt area and rearrange posture on it.
