Tomatis Re-training the Ear
Tomatis was very interested in re-training the ear to re-gain sounds that are either weak or lost. These losses could result from a difficult pregnancy or birth, early childhood colds and illnesses, accidents, living near loud sounds, emotional trauma, or a myriad of experiences that alter how a person hears sounds. Tomatis' curiosity led him to experiment with classical music and different ranges of sound. He discovered that listening problems are the root cause of many learning difficulties. Ultimately, Tomatis developed a highly effective technique to remedy learning concerns–the Tomatis® Method–and proprietary electronic equipment to provide auditory stimulation training–the Electronic Ear.
