Singers and voice care


Strengthen and maintain for your voice with the WellO2 breathing exercise device.

The 3 most common reasons why using your voice might feel difficult

1) Superficial breathing caused by stress: You are only breathing at the top of your lungs and you are forced to use the muscles of the neck and shoulders to support you.

2) Poor indoor air: Prolonged exposure leads to irritation of the airways, mucus build-up, changes in the voice, and may eventually cause obstruction in the airways.

3) Flu symptoms: Cold-induced stuffiness and mucus secretion makes the voice lower.

WellO2 is a breathing exercise device that strengthens, opens, and cleanses the airways with warm steam and counter pressure breathing

For singers, the maintenance of their voice is an everyday chore, but many vocal performers or people who use their voice a lot in their work do not remember or know how to take care of their voice. Problems may arise from the weak breathing muscles inadequate to provide long expiration and efficient inspiration, or due to dryness of the mucous membranes and especially vocal cords. Also, poor quality air can hamper voice by stressing vocal cords with irritating compounds.

Steam inhalation is a decades old way to treat the vocal cords. Warm steam calms and softens the vocal cords which changes the sound so that the vocals become stronger.

The right breathing technique is essential for a singer. Respiratory training can extent expiration time and improve inspiration which makes singing easier. Combined vocal cord maintenance and the steam inhalation, the singer can achieve better results.

WellO2 is an ideal device for the singers and all voice users to keep up with the better voice. It provides a quick and easy way to open the voice just before the performance.



"Here are my thoughts after a couple of weeks of use in the morning and evening. First, it's 10-15 suck & blows setting no. 2. Then the nasal mask and about 10 suck & blows with the mouth. My oxygen uptake is clearly better now. In the morning there are clearly more impurities coming out (dust, old cigarette residue, etc. appear as dark spots) when hacking up.

My voice is stronger, especially when I do half of the blows with an easy sound. Of course, these are as personal as your own vocal cords, i.e. there will be differences in experience. I'm guessing, however, that the chances of good results are a heck of a lot better than bad ones."

"Based on doing this for a living for 18 years, I can say that Wello is going to be a big help on tour. Breathing strength improves, abdominal muscles become more toned, and, most importantly personally, the device helps to warm up and moisturize my instrument for the evening gig.

I myself suffer from dry vocal cords when performing in dry air-conditioned modern venues. This is a real problem and threat, especially on longer tours. Based on even the short experience, I can say that Wello offers help with this biggest concern for myself on tour. Big thumbs up!"

"The WellO2 breathing device really works well for singers. When you start the vocal warmup with the device, it doesn’t take so long. The device relaxes the vocal cords, moisturizes the mucous membranes, and opens and cleans the upper respiratory tract. Wello strengthens the respiratory muscles and gives more breathing capacity to the lungs. It feels like oxygen just simply circulates better and the song has more power. A great device! Highly recommended."
