Image-popup-article_edited_edited.png

Damir is a licensed The Tomatis® Method provider. The Tomatis® Method is a natural approach to neurosensory stimulation. Its listening programs change the music and voice in real time in order to capture the brain’s attention and to develop motor, emotional and cognitive skills. Developed by the French Doctor and Researcher, Alfred Tomatis, the Tomatis® Method relies on an advanced technology and the excellence of its trained professionals on how to use it.

The Tomatis® Method is a complementary tool to most therapeutic or pedagogical support. It makes it possible to multiply the results obtained, and thus significantly reduce the duration of a traditional therapeutic or medical plan. It can be used at any age (children, adults or seniors) and it can be used for one’s personal development to help fight most difficulties and disorders.

The Tomatis® Method serves over 200,000 individuals a year worldwide. It offers children, adults, and seniors, one of the most innovative and advanced, neurosensory stimulation training to improve brain function. Supported by a wealth of studies, the Tomatis® Method is commonly used to improve motor skills as well as emotional and cognitive abilities. The training sessions are customized by a Certified Tomatis® Practitioner based on an individualized assessment of the client’s needs. Children and adults can follow their daily listening sessions in the comfort of their home or in the provider’s office through a unique portable device called TalksUp®.

The ear is the most powerful sensory integrator of the human body. More than 80% of the stimulation our brain receives comes from our ear. On one hand it has a major role in the cerebral stimulation of the brain, and on the other hand it has a positive action on the cerebral plasticity of the brain. This explains how it interacts in many fields of application. The Tomatis® Method is a complementary tool to most therapeutic or pedagogical support.

Areas Of Application

Autism Spectrum Disorder

In this way, the Tomatis® Method can help people whose disorders are characterized by delays and alterations in cognitive development, communication and social interaction like autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and behaviors sometimes associated with it: Asperger syndrome, sensory processing disorder, or Down syndrome.

Learning Difficulties

The purpose of the Tomatis® Method in this area is to enable the child to establish compensatory circuits. In other words, it is not possible to cure a learning disability, but it is possible to bypass or compensate it, allowing the brain to exploit other neural networks.

Language Disorder 

By instantly treating the voice of the subject and transmitting it by air and bone conduction, the Tomatis® Method promotes the perception of the fundamental sounds of language and can help children with language disorders in addition to professional support.

Attention Deficit Disorder

The Tomatis® Method is a complementary approach to support children and adults with attention deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity (ADD / ADHD).

Emotional Regulation

By its action on the limbic system and prefrontal cortex, the Tomatis® Method will intervene in the regulation of emotion disorders related to depression and anxiety. It will also have an effective direct action on the regulation of stress.

Motor Skills and Coordination

By promoting the transmission of deep and rhythmic sounds, the Tomatis® Method acts directly on the vestibule and has a positive effect on motor function, regulation of muscle tone and verticality.

Foreign languages

The Tomatis® Method allows anyone wishing to learn a foreign language, the ability to truly own the rhythm of the language. It is this rhythm that will allow the individual to more easily graft vocabulary, syntax and grammar. A study by seven universities in the framework of a European program proves a halving of the learning time through the Tomatis® Method.

The Voice

By actively working on the auditory feedback loop by air and bone conduction, the Tomatis® Method proposes to restore the link that connects the brain, ear and voice.

FEES FOR SERVICES:

Tomatis therapy is done in 3 loops. There is a 4 to 6 week break in between the first and the second loop and then another 6 to 8 weeks break in between the second and the third loop. Each loop consists of an evaluation session following by 14 days listening sessions. Each listening session is 40 - 80 minutes long (this depends on the individual's ability to process the stimulation and age). Since the tomatis therapy fees vary depending on the place of the service and support, please contact the provider for precise pricing information. We ask that parents/clients pay for each of the loops in advance. Billing is generated towards the end of each loop. Parents/client can submit the bill to insurance company for reimbursement.
