The little girl who didn’t like hugs

DSC_4946

One of my students did not like touching or hugging people and she did not like to be touched herself either. She had difficulty interpreting these gestures. This student attended the Tomatis listening program and after three intensive blocks of listening she has become far more emotionally involved. She’s now giving her family members huge big hugs.
Her facial expression has also become more warm and soft. This is really neat to see that she is changing in a very positive way. Her reading and spelling are also improving. She’s more able to pace herself while she’s reading, to make her eyes track slowly and carefully so that her reading is becoming more accurate with proper intonation and punctuation instead of racing on.

Sjaan van Falier, Tomatis® Practitioner in Wellington, shares how the Tomatis® Method can make profound changes in behaviour and emotions after a few months on the programme.
