Voice Aerobics® is a Whole-Body, Voice Strengthening Program developed to focus on posture, breathing and voice.

Many people suffer from changes in their voice and speech, some as a result of Parkinson’s Disease, stroke or neurological problems.

Effective 5-08-2020: The physical office will re-open. In order to continue some degree of social distancing and safety, patients will only be allowed in the office during their scheduled treatment time, and unless necessary, family members will be requested to wait outside the office. Masks and gloves will be used as appropriate and usual standard precautions. When possible, paperwork will be sent ahead of the visit via email. If you prefer, telehealth visits are also available.

What People are Saying…

I could definitely feel that my voice was not nearly as “tired” at the end of an all day seminar. I could speak to a group all day without constantly worrying where I was looking when I was speaking; it made it easier to walk around in the room or point to my slide presentation and everyone could still hear me. Superior to lapel mc or fixed mic since the voice amplifier “follows you” or “moves with you” – you aren’t controlled by it.

Sept 15, 2012 I wore my amp both days at the meetings, and I was relieved not to have to worry about projecting my voice. Because it took less effort to speak, I spoke more frequently. What a nice benefit.

Dear Mary, I had hoped to tell you how much I like your video. I do quite a bit of exercise so it is perfect for me. I will do it almost every morning.

I was out with some friends a few nights ago and someone said you have improved so much from a year ago (I had all the signs then, but was not diagnosed) and the other person said it is her voice which has improved the most. I thought you would like to know that because I am making real progress with you. I love how committed you are to helping people. You are indeed a wonderful person with all that you are doing, and your passion clearly shows.

August 2012 I picked up the amplifier at the post office Monday. It was such a relief to have the freedom to move around the classroom and know that the students will hear me. I also feel more confident when I go to staff meetings in the library. I had actually stopped talking during meetings because several teachers had mocked me when I tried to speak, but wasn’t able to project. Thank you again for expediting my order Mary!

My dad has lots of exercise for Parkinson’s DVDs but yours is the one he does everyday.  My mom likes to join him because it’s a fun class and the exercises are easy and help lower her stress.  Dad enjoys feeling part of your workout group. Thanks for your enthusiasm and sincere spirit.

I use the Hi-Volt bracelet and CD daily. The Hi-Volt keeps me honest. It’s got to flash in order for me to count the exercise as done. If I have trouble getting it to light, the CD is broken down into 8 tracks so I can go back to the beginning of the track and start over. My favorite track is #7 Tongue Twisters. When I finish with the Hi-volt I do some (or all) of Songbirds. I’ve had PD for 29 years, have been through 3 one-on-one speech classes, and this CD & Hi-Volt combination is the best thing I’ve found yet for maintaining and building on the gains in speech quality.

Hi, Mary! I meant to send you a thank-you for the wonderful articles you write about Parkinson’s disease. I think you must be an awesome person as well as an awesome speech therapist! Thank you so much for sharing your literary expertise with my readers of the Parkinson Foundation of Harris County (Houston) monthly Bulletin.

Sarah Malcolm

Hi Mary, I love your blog and enjoyed you so much at last weekend’s retreat. My husband and I immediately did the songbird CD.

To my Parkinson’s friends, I just received Mary Spremulli’s Voice Aerobics CD and DVD. I, like many other people with Parkinson’s have been having voice problems. For an author and motivational speaker that is even more important. I found the CD and DVD to be a great way for PWPs to exercise your voice and have fun at the same time.

Hi, Mary! Wanted to thank you again for your vibrant and enthusiastic presentation at the Voice Aerobics workshop this past Saturday! It was informative and thought-provoking, while at the same time a barrel of fun!! If only, the more traditional aerobics classes which I attend were half as engaging!! As one of those who did not previously think I had any voice or speech issues which necessitated any concern, I now realize, thanks to your workshop, that even if this is true, all the more reason to commence a daily “practice” incorporating the techniques which you have pioneered to insure that this continues to be the case in the future.
