THE MUSICAL MIND: ENERGIZING THE BODY AND MIND WITH THE TOMATIS METHOD

 
 
 

The saying “No pain, no gain.” is usually true when it comes to fixing, healing, or enhancing oneself. But did you know that the pleasurable experience of listening to music can also energize your spirits, heal your body and jumpstart your brain?

The Tomatis Method utilizes a system of sound sensory stimulation to enhance the brain’s capabilities. This method provides the brain with new information to facilitate better listening, learning, understanding, speaking, balancing and more.

What is the Tomatis Method?

 

Dr. Tomatis created a complex electronic filtering and gating system, named the “Tomatis Electronic Ear.” This sophisticated electronic device employs certain frequencies of music to retrain a client’s ears. The brain and nervous systems regain their balance, that critical balance necessary to achieve personal development and success.

 

The recipient hears the music through a special headphone. Sound is transmitted through air via the ear canal. It is also transmitted by a vibration at the top of the headset. This vibration is called bone conduction.

Tomatis’ work indicates that while music alone can provide healing in the short term, music that has been programmed specifically with the Electronic Ear initiates long-term change or improvements.

 

There are two kinds of devices:

  • The Solisten device is small, portable, for clients who cannot come to the centre. But it is recommended that it is used for the first session.
  • The TAP – placed in the centre with more function for filtering and a mother voice used for the listening therapy. 

The Tomatis Method operates on the plasticity of the neural circuits involved in the decoding and analysis of sounds, as well as on those involved in motricity, balance, and coordination. As such, the Tomatis Method can help children develop compensatory strategies to deal with and manage their learning difficulties and language disorders as well as other issues.
