inTime Method: the development of brain with the drum rhythm
The inTime method is an acoustical therapy program aimed at development of the sense of rhythm, communication skills, ability to synchronize thoughts and movements in time. In our clinic the method of audio therapy – InTIME – is prescribed to children and teenagers in order to develop their speech, to enhance the mental abilities and the quality of rehabilitation as well as for adults should their attention or productivity decreases.
How the brain stimulation is performed by inTime Method
The ability to live in lockstep with time, to plan the daily routine in such a way as to be at once everywhere – these are the specifics of the sense of rhythm. This sense is very useful for either children, or adults. If a person loses the sense of rhythm, due to life circumstances, then this person faces inconsistency, abstraction, lack of punctuality, slow motor skills and thinking, the break-down of control over emotions. The loss of the sense of rhythm in one’s life leads to quick fatigue and minimal benefits, while a lot of time and significant efforts are exposed.
The ability to sense the time rhythm is guaranteed by the functioning of prefrontal cortex. This part of the brains controls our thinking and movements. Due to the harmonious functioning of the pre-frontal cortex, we analyze our experience, we make decisions, realize our plans and build relationships with other people.
The human brain provides for musical intelligence. This fact being defined by scientists, neurobiologists, is undoubtful in nowadays. Interacting with music (playing an instrument or listening to sounds) activates much more brain centers than other types of activity. And the main aspect of music is a rhythm. Formation of the sense of rhythm by listening to rhythmic musical compositions is made by the inTime Method as a method of harmonizing the brain functioning.

inTime production music in ethno style
The inTime program was created by the experts of an American company, ABT. In its creation, the musician and composer, Nacho Arimany, the pediatrist, Sheila Allen, and the founder of ABT, Alex Doman, were involved. The method was firstly officially presented in 2014.
Over 100 percussion of the peoples’ instruments from all over the world have been used in the recording of phenomenal music inTime. Among them there are West African membranophones, Indian bells, South Indian drums ghatam, Himalayan singing bowls, Vietnamese wooden toad-clapper, Spanish castanets.
Listening therapy Intime combines three factors of influence: stimulation with sounds on certain frequencies, stimulation with the help of rhythm and by applying active games.
1) Rhythmic music
Each session the child starts with listening to 9-minute inTime musical composition – and in such way the last session of the course is finished.
Hearing perception of the music under the inTime Method occurs through the licensed hardware. It’s a multi-touch sound system Waves with the headphones with the osteophony of acoustic waves.
2) Kinetic rhythmic exercises and games
At the request of the trainer, a child performs specific rhythmic exercises. Each such exercise involves the voice and body movements when a child plays on the drum.
The drum membrane is tuned in such a way that when the beater stricks it, it produces low frequency 99 Hz sounds. This sound resonates with the patient’s body, as a result of which the brain and the entire body functioning are stimulated, the stress action decreases and the neuromuscular apparatus is harmonized.
inTime engrossing training in our clinic
