The Tomatis® Effect
In 1957 and 1959, Dr Tomatis presented his research for the French Academy of Sciences and the French Academy of Medicine respectively. They confirmed his findings called the Tomatis® Effect.
The Tomatis® Effect states that:
The Tomatis® Electronic Ear
The Tomatis® Electronic Ear is the auditory re-training device Dr Tomatis invented to transform his patients’ ability to listen. It received the Gold Medal for Scientific Research at the World Exhibition in Brussels in 1958. It was a huge, chunky thing attached to magnetic tape reels.
Today, all Tomatis® Practitioners in New Zealand use a pocket-size Electronic Ear — the TalksUp®. It uses the same principles, filters, and time delays Dr Tomatis invented, but with a sound quality, range, and precision he could only dream of. Your individualised programme is downloaded into the TalksUp®. All family members can have their own programme.
Dr Tomatis refused to compromise with quality. With the TalksUp® you can finally access the full Tomatis® Method at home.
Tomatis® Bone Conduction Kit
The Tomatis® Bone Conduction Kit replaces Tomatis® headphones and is used for:
- Babies whose fontanelles haven’t closed yet
- Sound sensitive people, hypotonic (very low muscle tone), or those with severe sensory integration problems
- Children who simply refuse to wear something on their head
- Adults with repeated concussions, whiplash, and headaches who can’t tolerate headphones.
The Tomatis® sound is delivered through bone conduction in a belt around the waist. You can also use a glove to gently stimulate other parts of the body.
The Gating®, filters, and music used are the same as for the full Tomatis® Method.
The Tomatis® Bone Conduction Kit is based on clinically proven technology. It is non-invasive and safe.
