The Tomatis method was developed as a technique for the training of the neuro-psychological and physiological systems by listening to special music program. The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of Tomatis method in patients with tinnitus. A young male patient with chronic tinnitus from 6 years was selected. The patient was assessed with Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI), Tinnitus Sample Case History (TSCH), psychological questionnaires, pure tone audiometry, pitch and…

The Effects of the Tomatis Method on the Artistic Voice

TLDR
The decrease of Peak-Amplitude Variation (vAm) lead to a stable voice emission with a better control and the better auditory perception in the zone of 3 kHz reduces the phenomenon of nasalization and gives expressive power to the artistic voice.
