The Tomatis® Method is a sensorineural auditory stimulation.

 A person can hear well and listen badly.

Did you know that what the brain needs most is stimulation?  And that over 80% of this stimulation comes from your ears?  The ears not only receive sound but also determine your balance, rhythm and coordination.

During the Tomatis® listening sessions, music is transmitted with sudden changes of tonal contrasts triggered by timbre and intensity.  These contracts are totally unpredictable.  Although painless, they will have the effect of surprising the brain, which, by natural reaction, will pay close attention.  As a result of these repeated and unpredictable acoustic contrasts, the brain moves with determination into more listening clarity, improving overall listening.

We offer listening tests prior to each session so we can customize the listening programs.

Depending on each individual case, we could offer the passive and active phases in some sessions.  The active phase can comprise of reading, humming or singing during which your voice is instantaneously modified and transmitted according to the specific parameters of the Tomatis® Effect.  If the active phase is a possible option, we would provide the specific headphones with a microphone.

Fields of Application

Learning and Language Disorders

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

Attention Disorders

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.

Affective and Emotional Disorders

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 prefontal 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.  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.

Personal Development and Well-Being

Sounds rich in high harmonics stimulate a vast network of nerves called the “reticular formation”.  The reticular formation controls the overall level of brain activity.  By emphasizing the transmission of high-pitched sounds that both produce a stimulating effect on the brain and a relaxing effect on the 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.

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 the ears to hear the rhythms and sounds of a new language, the Tomatis® Method enables the ear to efficiently adapt to the rhythms and sound and to analyze and reproduce them.

The Tomatis® Method is a pedagogical method that helps you listen better … not hear better.
