The BACH Institute is a hearing centre that follows the approach of the A. Tomatis Method (systemic hearing therapy) and complements this with new scientific tests from the Music and Brain Working Group of the Neurological Clinic Heidelberg (hearing threshold and sound perception test (KLAWA)). Systemic Listening Therapy is a complementary medical therapy method, i.e. an auditory treatment method that promotes hearing and sound perception and increases the ability to listen. In systemic hearing therapy, sound media, both music and speech, are used. The music of W.A. Mozart has proven to be very effective, but new pieces of music (minuets, oboe concertos) also enrich the therapeutic process.
In language acquisition, special sound media with speech are used to repeat the spoken word.
An important aid in systemic hearing therapy is the "electronic ear", a special headset through which music can be heard in a defined frequency range. At the BACH Institute we use a new digital version of the "electronic ear". An individual hearing profile is created for each person, based on the results of the hearing threshold and sound perception test. Accordingly, an individual hearing program is designed according to age and the question at hand. Basically, however, it can be said that, like a personal fingerprint, hearing and sound perception show completely different individual characteristics, some of which are predisposed, but which can also unfold and intensify through training. It is a special opportunity to take the subjective hearing and sound perception ability into account in hearing therapy and thus specifically improve the hearing and analysis and regulation ability of the ear.
There are positive effects on the cognitive, emotional and motor skills of children, adolescents, adults and seniors in particular. It has an attention-enhancing effect and can also be described as perception training.
The effects of systemic hearing therapy are more extensive than is generally known and are, in my opinion, impressive. The areas of application can concern school problems (reading and spelling weakness, dyscalculia, dyslexia, lack of concentration) in children/young people.
These mentioned areas can also be proven by studies and research projects (e.g. audio and neuroplasticity of complex auditory performance related to speech and musical learning).In adults, the therapy is often used when the question arises of how to cope better with stress in everyday life or in the workplace.
But systemic hearing therapy is also suitable for a quick and successful acquisition of foreign languages. Here, special sound media are used for active work with the electronic ear. Even from acting schools there is positive feedback in the application, in terms of more differentiated control of the voice, faster foreign language acquisition and higher learning ability by increasing concentration and memory.
In addition, we have the opportunity for mutual exchange of experience and knowledge with the Music and Brain Working Group of the Neurological Clinic Heidelberg. We are very interested in a continuous mutual exchange of experiences and successes from our practice and the underlying neurological and hearing acoustic research. At the BACH Institute we work with a hearing threshold test developed by the research group "Music and Brain" (P. Schneider, www.musicandbrain.de). In addition to the hearing threshold test, we use the KLAWA test, sound perception test (R. Schneider, www.klangwahrnehmung.de). The measured results of both tests are incorporated into the hearing programme of each individual.
The BACH Institute is also a contact for school children with learning, performance or motivation problems. The coaching is resource-oriented and aims to recognise and promote the individual potential of each individual. Ideally, coaching can also take place in addition to systemic hearing therapy.
