Areas of application

The ear is the most powerful sensory integrator in the human body.

Over 80% of the stimulation our brain receives comes from the ear.

  • Attention

  • Learning

  • Voice and language

  • Emotion regulation

  • Motor skills and coordination

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders

  • Personal development

The Tomatis® Method is based on the principle of the transmission of unanticipated sound contrasts through music and a person’s voice in order to constantly surprise the brain. That element of surprise, forces the brain to develop automatic mechanisms to detect change, which ultimately serves to develop stronger focus and attention.

The brain tends to protect itself naturally by filtering the analysis of sensory information. It especially happens when the external environment is perceived as threatening or after an emotional shock. By stimulating the vast network of nerves that controls the overall level of brain activity, the Tomatis® Method has positive effects on the control of emotion as well as on the regulation of stress.

The most important organ in the ear associated with balance, movement and coordination is called the Vestibular Nerve. The Tomatis Method, through its direct interaction with the vestibular nerve, has an effect on the regulation of muscle tone as well as on both verticality and laterality disorders. The vestibular nerve in association with several other parts of the brain plays an important role in the coordination and rhythm mechanisms.

The Tomatis® Method stimulates the neural circuits linking the ear to the brain called  "mirror neurons". The mirror neuron system plays an important role in social interaction, cognition and communication. The Tomatis® Method is a complementary approach which is often used in conjunction with other therapies and programs to help those on the autism spectrum.
