Who benefits from the Tomatis® Method?

Learning and Language Disorders

The Tomatis® Method works with the plasticity of the neural pathways that decode and analyze sounds, as well as those motor skills, balance and coordination. This Method can help individuals develop coping strategies to deal with learning and language disorders.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The Tomatis® Method is based on the principle of transmitting contrasts in music designed to constantly surprise the brain. This keeps the brain stimulated. The goal is to help the brain develop automatic mechanisms to detect change, which serves to reinforce attention.

Stress, Anxiety and Depression

The brain tends to protect itself naturally. Such as when the external environment is perceived as aggressive or after an emotional shock. This brain response acts as a filter that disturbs the transmission and analysis of sensory messages. This is an indirect action on the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex. Working with this action, the Tomatis® Method contributes to the regulation of emotional disorders related to depression and anxiety.

Motor Disorders

Through its direct interaction with the vestibular nerve, the Tomatis® Method stimulates the regulation of muscle tone and following verticality. This action improves laterality disorders. The vestibular system plays an important role in the function of coordination and rhythm in association with several other parts of the brain. As a result, the Tomatis® Method can effectively improve and change rhythm and coordination.

Development Delays (PDD)

The neural circuits connecting the ear to the brain contain specific neurons called “mirror neurons”. These mirror neurons play an important role in the construction of social cognition. This is the set of processes that enable us to attribute intentions and ideas to a person, and particularly understand his or her emotional state. By acting on these neural circuits, the Tomatis® Method improves the quality of interpersonal skills.

Brain Fog

Sounds rich in high harmonics stimulate a vast network of nerves called the “reticular formation”. The reticulare formation controls the overall level of brain activity. By emphasizing the transmission of high-pitched sounds that both produce a stimulation effect on the brain and a relaxing effect on body, the Tomatis® Method brings about a positive effect on personal development and well-being.

Improving the Voice and Musicality

The fundamental principle of the Tomatis® Method is that any influence on the mechanisms of reception and analysis of an acoustic message will affect the way in which this message is reproduced, whether spoken, sung or emitted by a musical instrument.

Preparation for Childbirth

The mother’s voice is perceived by the fetus. It constitutes a kind of primary emotional acoustic matter that is foundational for a child’s development. It is therefore valuable that a child perceives a pleasant voice. The Tomatis® Method Pregnancy Program moves with mothers throughout their pregnancies, particularly in the third trimester, stimulating bone conduction and reducing stress, and providing a relaxed body, mind and spirit for the mother and baby.

Integration of Foreign Languages

The purpose of the Tomatis® Method related to foreign language is to give anyone who wishes to learn a foreign language the ability to hear the sounds necessary to learn another language. By opening ears to hear the rhythms and sounds of a new language, the Tomatis® Method enable the ear to efficiently adapt to the rhythms and sound and to analyze and reproduce them. This work therefore frees one from the rhythmic patterns and sounds of one’s own language where we are often stuck and unable to hear a new language. This exercise allows the ear to hear a new rhythm and the brain to learn a new language.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Autism disorder, also known as autism spectrum disorder, is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects the way a person interacts, communicates, behaves, and learns.

People with autism disorder range from gifted to severely challenged in their ability to learn, think, and problem-solve. Associated symptoms make life difficult and painful for them and their families.

The Tomatis Method, in combination with other treatments, can help the child with autism disorder function better. This method combines listening to bits of music and speech – filtered sounds – with a vibrational component.
