A scientific method


Alfred Tomatis, doctor of medicine, ORL, phoniatric specialist, since 1947, highlighted the relations which exist between the ear and the voice. These discoveries, scientifically proven, independently of him, at the university of the Sorbonne in 1957, were recorded under the name:
of "Tomatis effect" to the Academy of Science and of Medicine of Paris.

of the méthod

The voice contains only what the ear hears (relation hearing-phonation).

    If one gives to the injured ear the possibility of hearing correctly, one improves instantaneously and unconsciously the vocal emission.  

It is possible to transform phonation by an auditive stimulation maintained during a certain time (law of remanence).


This stimulation is given by the electronic ear.




From the principles of the Tomatis effect, in synergy with several disciplines like the audiology, phonology, psychology, was born the Tomatis method. It is about a technique of treatment of the disorders of listening and communication, starting from the relations between hearing and of phonation.


A pedagogy of listening


It is an educational step, which tends to regulate the problems of training, relation and communication via the human ear in its function of listening, control of the voice and language.


A personalized mode of action .


All starts with a test of listening which highlights if you hear all the frequencies well, which is your directing ear as well as the good or the faulty operation of your bone hearing (the case of resonance of the body) and of your aerial listening.


. and innovator!


It is then about a sound stimulation under earphones of the nervous circuits of hearing and attention, involving the musculature of the middle ear.

Then, an active phase makes it possible to improve retro-vocal control and thus, to regain, increase and express all its potentialities.




The ear has several functions :

- a function of balance, space-time organization: it ensures body integration, the control of the movements, posture, rhythm, swiftness and fluidity.

- a function of analysis in height, tone, and intensity of the sound

- a function of dynamization of the brain : in particular the high pitches (harmonics) which gives this cortical load.

Moreover the ear is in close connection with the nervous system and the neurovégétative life.
