Deafness and Tomatis, can that help me?
The Tomatis Method® does not improve hearing in cases of hearing loss due to an irreversible lesion. On the other hand, it does improve the perception of certain frequencies by regulating liquids in the inner ear.
Thérèse is a patient who was experiencing hearing loss as a result of age-related presbycusis. She was looking for an alternative to traditional hearing aids and found it in the form of a treatment offered at our center. After receiving the treatment, Thérèse is extremely satisfied with the results she has seen and is now able to hear better in noisy environments. Read the full testimonial here.
If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss and is looking for a non-traditional solution, we highly recommend considering the treatment options available at our center. Don't let hearing loss hold you back any longer, contact us today to schedule a consultation and see how we can help.
For hearing loss, we have better results by combining the Tomatis® Method with laser phototherapy. More information on this unique protocol in Switzerland in click here.
Hearing loss: clinical case treated between October 2019 and May 2020.
In the image below, you can see the efficiency of the treatment with an improvement of the response on the frequencies between 2500 and 8000 hz.
On what type of deafness do you get results?
We achieve results with conductive or sensorineural hearing loss, but we do not treat profound hearing loss.
What are the causes of hearing loss?
Noise exposure: Prolonged exposure to loud noises can damage the hair cells in the inner ear, leading to hearing loss.
Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis): As we age, the hair cells in our ears naturally deteriorate, leading to hearing loss.
Ototoxic medications: Certain medications can be toxic to the ear and can cause hearing loss.
Ear infections: Middle ear infections can cause damage to the ear drum or the bones in the middle ear, leading to hearing loss.
Trauma: Trauma to the head or ear can cause damage to the ear and lead to hearing loss.
Genetics: Some forms of hearing loss are inherited and are caused by genetic mutations.
Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, can lead to hearing loss.
Tumors: Tumors in the ear or on the hearing nerve can cause hearing loss.
Congenital conditions: Some individuals are born with hearing loss due to congenital conditions.
Blockages: Earwax or other blockages in the ear can cause hearing loss by preventing sound waves from reaching the inner ear.
