The Tomatis® Method is known for its relaxing effects on the brain by regulating the links between the vestibule and the cochlea. As the mother's voice is perceived by the fetus, it is important that it is pleasant for the baby. Moreover, the mother's voice is - according to A. Tomatis - a kind of primordial affective substance that is crucial for the child's development.
For example, the bone conduction of sounds used by the Tomatis headset will cause the music to be emitted in all the bones of the body, and then to be felt by the fetus.

According to a study carried out in 1988 by the maternity service of the general hospital of Vesoul, the results obtained were very conclusive. It was carried out on 170 pregnant women divided into 3 groups (without preparation, traditional preparation and psycho-sensory preparation in Audio-Psycho-Phonology).
Babies whose mothers had undergone psycho-sensory preparation had higher than average birth weights (+4%), and Apgar scores also showed that they had faster and better recovery than other babies.
The phenomenon of anxiety reduction or the relaxation effect obtained with the Tomatis Method was observed using the Hamilton anxiety scale.
