Research review on Tomatis treatment
In recent months Rafaele Joudry has completed a review of all the research studies on Tomatis listening therapy. She reviewed 100 studies in 23 countries on the following topics: vocal quality, singing, musicality, auditory processing, learning difficulties, dyslexia, ADHD, Autism spectrum disorder, stroke, communication, reading, academic performance, speech problems including dyspraxia and stuttering, voice, focus and concentration, spatial perception, severe developmental disability, epilepsy, brain damage, foreign language learning, depression and anxiety and pregnancy. The growing interest in this method within many fields of treatment in itself indicates the veracity of this approach to rehabilitation. Read the full study here.
Rafaele on Lecture tour
In 2021 Rafaele Joudry will be resuming her lectures in the greater Sydney area. Many lectures booked for 2020 were cancelled due to COVID. She is speaks to community groups in the aged care and children’s sectors, plus professional organisations and conferences in fields related to any of the conditions which Sound Therapy can help to address. Speaking is an excellent way of introducing Sound Therapy to a new audience.

First published paper on tinnitus
While the research on Tomatis has been traditionally focused on learning, language and developmental issues, there has recently been a first published journal article on the Tomatis method for tinnitus. It was published in the International Journal of Research In Medical and Health Sciences. Joudry’s portable method, Sound Therapy SYNERGY, has been used in tinnitus treatment for thirty years, as its convenience and portability made it more suitable to this user group. The clinic based method, requiring a greater investment of time and money was mostly restricted to more severe developmental issues in childhood. The beginning of clinical exploration of the Tomatis method for tinnitus is a beneficial step to advance scientific awareness about why Sound Therapy assists with this condition.
