I'm Mary Spinelli I've been a medical speech pathologist for over 25 years and I developed a special interest in working with individuals who have changes in voice speech or swallowing as a result of Parkinson's and other neurological disorders frequently when the formal therapy ends patients asked me for exercises that they can do on their own at home and hence voice aerobics was born in 1999 I began to offer a 50-minute exercise class the combined techniques from voice therapy and exercise physiology this DVD is the express version of that class regular use of this program and others may increase your voice and physical functioning and who knows maybe people will even stop asking you to repeat
