Voice and speech feminization is not a treatment, it’s a TRAINING

Voice and speech feminization is not a treatment,

The word treatment implies something to “treat.” Then, you have to cure, heal, or find a remedy for it through medication or therapeutic intervention that help you to restore an altered or lost balance. It’s what we usually call in speech therapy, reeducation or rehabilitation.

In the situation of voice and speech feminization, we are not treating but searching a way to reestablish the balance which has been lost. We neither heal or cure.

What we do is train an elastic and trainable element (the voice, the speech) based on the work and development of the muscles, prosody, emotion, and so much more to create a change, a modification and an improvement. Then comes the HARMONIZATION  of the synergy with the personality, the emotions, the feelings, the way to see life, and the way to communicate.

Most of the time, the big mistake to make is to try to feminize a voice based on our vocal pathology knowledge. Trying to re-educate a healthy vocal gesture, which doesn’t present any type of dysfunction and doesn’t require rehabilitation is

That’s why it’s so important to understand the patient. Feminizing a voice simply means giving it more femininity. For this, it’s important to start with point number one: What’s femininity? Then, the most important thing is to understand the patient and her concept of femininity. Understanding it and clarifying the situation gives the speech therapist the opportunity to start the training.

Speech therapists are too used to healing, but our work is also to evaluate, analyze and consider every situation. And the most important thing is to respond effectively to a request through evidence, anatomical and scientific knowledge, but also and above all, through our intuition.

The patients who come to Femivoz end up achieving their goals because we base our training on the most important question of all: who are our patients? It’s really important for us to know them, who they are, how they live, what they like, what’s their family situation, their professional situation, etc. It is also important to laugh with them, sometimes to cry also. It is important to speak, listen and share, because it is the only way to get such good results.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”4.0.9″ background_color=”#f2215c”][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.0.9″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.0.9″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.9″ text_text_color=”#ffffff” text_font_size=”18px”]

I constantly receive questions from speech therapists asking me for help to feminize the voice of patients who come to them. The only answer I can give them is to be human, kind, friendly, be who they are, and be authentic. Because speech therapy is also a trusting relationship where sharing, trusting, listening, and empathizing are the basis of its foundation, we need to be able to put ourselves in the shoes of the people we want to help.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.29.3″ min_height=”332px” custom_padding=”30px|||||”][et_pb_row column_structure=”1_4,3_4″ _builder_version=”3.29.3″ custom_padding=”2px||16px|||”][et_pb_column type=”1_4″ _builder_version=”3.29.3″][et_pb_image src=”https://femivoz.es/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/CED0058.jpg” _builder_version=”3.29.3″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”3_4″ _builder_version=”3.29.3″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.9″]

I think today, if the Astudillo method has such good results, it’s because it’s not only a speech therapy method. The Astudillo method is simply a human method, a way of being, a way of feeling people. There is no secret other than being yourself and believing that everything is possible to make it happen. This is exactly the reason why I have spent 15 years fighting for femininity and for giving voices back to women all around the world.
