Sound therapy program for kids & adults


The Tomatis Method was developed by Alfred Tomatis (1920-2001), a French Ear Nose and Throat physician. He devoted a considerable part of his career to studying the relationship between the ear and the voice, and the connection between listening and communication. His discoveries were validated in the physiology laboratory of the Sorbonne and were presented to the Academy of Sciences and Academy of Medicine in Paris in 1957 and 1960. The research is ongoing and extensive.

The Tomatis Method makes use of:


- Specific, filtered music
- Vibrational bone conduction of sound in addition to air conduction
- The electronic Gating system that ensures the brain receives optimal stimulation. This is unique to the Tomatis Method.

Because the ear is a sensory integration system, it plays an efficient role in many areas, such as:
- Learning disorders
- Emotional disorders (stress, fatigue, anxiety, loss of confidence)
- Communication disorders (auditory sensitivity, receptive listening)
- Attention disorders
- Pervasive development disorders (Autism, Asperger's Syndrome etc.)

Solisten is the portable version of the original Tomatis Method. This means that the programme can be followed in the convenience of your own home.

A listening session lasts 2 hours. To use the Solisten, it is recommended that two 15 day sessions of 2 hours per day are carried out, with a break of 4 weeks between sessions. Since the device is portable, the patient may move around. Activities such as crafts, lego or homework can be carried out while listening.

Interactive Metronome


Interactive Metronome (IM) is a brain-based rehabilitation, assessment and training programme developed to directly to improve the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning and sequencing. This, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organizing and language.

Interactive Metronome is a structured, goal-oriented programme, challenging a patient to synchronize a range of whole-body exercises to a precise computer-generated beat. Participants are instructed to synchronize various hand and foot exercises to a reference tone heard through headphones. A patented audio and visual guidance system provides immediate feedback. The difference between the patient's performance and the computer-generated beat is measured in milliseconds. The score provides indicates timing accuracy.
