Neurosensory Auditive Stimulation, door of Communication and Consciousness
“The ear is the basis for the functioning and implementation of the ability to listen. Listening has a mechanical-auditory substrate with a neurophysiological basis. It is not a solely voluntary act ”.
What is listening?
Listening is the ability to be able to use hearing at a sensory and motor level in an attentive way, in order to learn and communicate, and without this being disturbing on an emotional level. Listening allows to objectively integrate reality from emotional neutrality.
The ear is for more than hearing. Hearing is not the same as listening. Hearing is a passive, involuntary and non-selective sensation. In listening is true communication.
Listening is the authentic perception and this is active, voluntary and selective.
Listening is being present. It is a reception. Without listening, there is no correct understanding and subsequent integration of the messages received.
Listening is disturbed when the brain cannot focus on the auditory message to analyze and interpret it, and it can no longer satisfactorily manage the emotion that this message can trigger.
The human dimension of listening is a mechanical auditory process that can be rehabilitated and reeducated. Our programs allow the control and restoration of listening distortions that people can suffer.
The only possible and globally accepted method to modify human listening is that described and developed by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis
“Listening is the bond between man and his conscience” Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis
The Tomatis® Method is based on the ear and the nervous system. In the ear taking into account other auditory dimensions, other than hearing itself. Hearing is a passive act, not voluntary and of course not selective. However, the ability to listen is a selective, active and voluntary act.
This auditory dimension supposes, from the auditory functional point of view, the proper functioning of a small musculoskeletal complex that is located in the middle ear and behind the eardrum (the hammer, the incus, the stirrup and the two muscles that are their own).
This auditory dimension has participated in the important process of our humanization.
Through the ability to listen, we can control our language, we have controlled coordination in balance, we access correct communication, we pay attention, we are present, and therefore we enable both the awareness of being and the environment that surrounds us.
Going beyond the purely functional auditory aspects, we find in the auditory neurosensory category a very complete projection of this function in the Central Nervous System (CNS), which responds to a sound heard in one way, and in another way to a sound heard .
This opens the door to access characteristics of the CNS, such as the stimulation of myelination, synaptic plasticity and the reinforcement of the neurosensory circuits already established in the two neurological integrators, both the vestibular and the cochlear.
So, according to the research of Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis, rehabilitating and reinforcing the mechanism of the ossicular chain of the middle ear, we can obtain transformations in language, in statics and kinetics, in communication, in access to our consciousness and, of course, induce CNS stimulation in some of its areas.
Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis also cites the extraordinary function of the auditory cell or Corti cell, which being a hair cell and having a large amount of mitochondria in its cytoplasm, it will be a source of energy at the brain level.
The application of these investigations reaches various therapeutic fields, from the psychopedagogical to the neuropsychiatric.
We cannot forget that when the human being loses the ability to listen, he enters an anxious-depressive state and, in turn, these frequent pathologies also lead to the loss of this faculty.
Thus, the treatment proposed by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis will also be a powerful anxiolytic and antidepressant.
The so-called “electronic ear” is used, an electronic complex provided with two channels with changing parameters that carry out a functional rehabilitation of the entire listening process.
Taking into account that the external emergence of the pneumogastric or vagus nerve is in the eardrum, it is logical to deduce that when the ear has poor tympanic regulation, the vagal response will be altered.
This anatomical-functional condition of the autonomic nervous system describes much of the so-called psychosomatic medicine.
Finally, we must not forget that Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis was a pioneer in the study of the audio-phonatory loop and auditory laterality.
The right ear-left hemisphere-right recurrent control is important to have a correct emission of the voice, a good level of language, a beautiful timbre and a correct pitch in the song.
Today we propose from music therapy and psychoacoustics an auditory tool with elements such as: sensations, emotions, sound of gasps, music, perception given in a sexual relationship from the initial and final part of an orgasm.
We have called it auditory sexual stimulation and the response of the G-spot in the human being is SOUND as a primary element in all our human development.
