Tomatis Practitioner Training (Level 1)

This training is for the discerning therapist interested in knowing the depth and breadth of what Sound Therapy can do for their client. Applicable for both children and adults, from wellness to really difficult diagnosis, this program has stood the test of time. The Tomatis program has evolved from using tape-recorded music to very technically advanced music systems, yet small enough to be carried in a handbag. There are strong differences which set the Tomatis program apart from their competitors. Besides carrying the only certification of the Tomatis Method, the program continues to use mono headphones (not stereo) in order to control balancing the ears with regards to important laterality functions, especially for functions of language, speech, and reading. The Tomatis program is also the only program today that uses gated feedback of a client’s own voice, as well as other important differences the practitioner will learn about in this in-depth 3-day workshop. For therapists globally, the important work of regulation/modulation through the Tomatis program cannot be denied. This workshop forms the first entry-level course of 4 different courses, though there is no obligation to continue beyond this point.
