What does listening therapy do?
Human hearing is at its most sensitive between 2000 and 5000 Hertz. The better and finer the ear can hear and differentiate these frequencies, the fuller and more multifaceted the voice sounds (=> The Three Laws of Tomatis). In ideal cases, the colour and expression of their voices make them convincing.
In addition to personal development in exploring the voice's potential, listening therapy also fosters the harmonization between aerotympanal conduction and bone conduction, thus between the outer world and the inner self. It is then easier, for example, to conduct conversations. The voice comes across as having a pleasant resonance to those you are speaking to. Teachers will receive more attention from students through their increased presence. Singers, actors and media personalities realize that they can better captivate their audiences. In the best cases, all participants experience this communication as an enrichment - endorphins ("happy hormones") are produced.
