The TaKeTiNa Rhythm-Research Project

For over 20 years, Reinhard Flatischler has actively researched rhythm. The effects of TaKeTiNa rhythmic education have now been thoroughly investigated.

Since 1970, numerous people have experienced the impact of the TaKeTiNa process on body, mind and soul. In 1989 and 1999, Reinhard Flatischler carried out a project together with the Head of the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Schmerztherapie (German Association for Pain Therapy), Dr. Gert Müller-Schwefe. After many patients showed unexpected improvements, this raised the question “Why?”. The result was the “TaKeTiNa Rhythm-Research Project”.

The common interest of many doctors and scientists to research the effects of rhythm on the nervous system and on consciousness has enabled us to continually pursue this work at our institute. In this manner, we can maintain the high standards of quality research that we began over twenty years ago with Dr. Köppchen at the Association for Music in Medicine.

Doctors and scientists involved in TaKeTiNa Rhythm-Research:

• Dr. Alfred Lohninger, Physician and Chronobiological Doctor, Autonom Health, (www.lebensfeuer.com)

• Dr. Klaus-Felix Laczika, University Clinic for Internal Medicine

• Dr. M A. Überall – Director, Institute for the Neurological Sciences, Nuremberg

• Dr. Hans-Ullrich Balzer, Physicist and Chronobiologist, member of the International Astronautical Academy

Measurement methods

1) Long-term measurement of heart rate variability (HRV) with breath rate.
We use the display method developed by Dr. Lohninger that enables changes to be seen on the monitor at the time they occur.

2) Electroencephalograph (EEG) measurements before, during and after the TaKeTiNa process.
Dr. Michael Überall is one of the leading experts in EEG evaluation. The mainframe computer he developed enables the recognition of significant connections within the immense amount of data that is amassed over longer periods of time.

3) Smardwatch® measurements before, during and after the TaKeTiNa process.
The Smardwatch® System, which was developed by Chronomar, is a multi-parametric monitoring system for recording vital parameters. It results in profound insights concerning the development of control systems in the body.


An overview of research results that have been determined at this date can be read under the sections “HRV”, “EEG” and “Smardwatch®”.
