Voici un résumé de l’étude du professeur Chiara Piccinini à propos du traitement des acouphènes grâce à l’audio-psycho-phonologie.

Audiopsychoponology, developed by Alfred Tomatis, is an interdisciplinary explanatory model that binds the role of the vestibulo-cochlear system to healthy psychological functioning, and to optimal motor, emotional, language and communication development. It involves a technique for training neuropsychological and physiological systems through listening to music (essentially Mozart and Gregorian chants) modified by an “Electronic Ear”. The aim of the study was to determine the effectiveness of APP in patients with tinnitus. The patients included in this study (n=30) were assessed with the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI), the Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) and the APP method’s own battery of tests. After an average of 46 hours of therapy, the patients recorded a median improvement of one grade on the THI questionnaire, and a median 21% decrease in the SAS score. Patients whose tinnitus had an ENT (ear-nose-throat) origin recorded a median improvement of 2 grades on the THI. Even the participants with the highest baseline score on the THI showed a median gain of 2 grades at completion of the treatment. These results, compared with known sound- based techniques for treating tinnitus, seem to offer a wider and more effective range of possibilities for addressing the tinnitus syndrome and helping patients obtain relief. These possibilities should be further investigated.
