What is the tomatis® method?
The Tomatis® Method is a neurofunctional auditory stimulation method designed to help anyone wanting to improve their listening, motor, emotional and cognitive abilities through music and language.
Listening is interrupted when an individual fails to correctly analyze the sensory message that his or her ear perceives, resulting in various learning, language, attention, affective and emotional disorders. When your listening is interrupted, your brain stops paying attention to the sounds that the ear transmits. Thanks to the Tomatis® method, we have now a way to re-capture the brains attention. During the Tomatis® listening sessions, music is transmitted with sudden changes of tonal contrasts triggered by timbre and intensity. These contrasts are totally unpredictable. Totally painless, they will have the effect of surprising the ear and the brain, which by natural reaction will pay close attention. As a result of these repeated and unpredictable acoustic contrasts, the ear and the brain move with determination into more listening clarity, improving overall listening.
In addition, these contrasts are designed to promote the transmission of high-pitched sounds to reinforce the right ear in its functions as dominant ear.
The importance of The auditory stimulation
Did you know that what the brain needs most is stimulation? Over 80% of this stimulation comes from your ear! Whether you're asleep or awake, your ear is constantly bombarding your brain with stimuli. From the fourth month of pregnancy, the fetus's ear is the first fully functional organ. The ear not only receives sound but also determines your balance, rhythm and coordination. Try covering an ear while walking and you''ll see you suffer significant loss of balance.
When listening is interrupted, the auditory system, which is a powerful sensory integrator, is disrupted, this disruption can have major repercussion for your personal development and well-being. By working on the reception and integration of sound though your ears, the Tomatis® Method helps you stimulate your brain effectively and minimizes listening challenges. Through a personalized auditory stimulation treatment it is possible to re-educate the auditory processing system so that it recovers its full functionality.
