Learn how to relax mind and body with Sophrology

What does Sophrology stand for?
The term Sophrology was invented by Professor Alfonso Caycedo, a Colombian neuro-psychiatrist, in 1960.

The word Sophrology comes from ancient Greek:

  • SOS = serenity, harmony
  • PHREN = spirit, consciousness
  • LOGOS = science, study

Sophrology can be described as the study of harmony within the consciousness. 

What is it?
Sophrology is a structured method designed to improve personal well-being.

It uses simple techniques such as breathing, relaxation, visualisation, and easy physical movements.

Regular practice leads to a healthy, relaxed body and a calm, alert mind.

Sophrology is widely practised in France, Spain, Switzerland, and Germany where it has been used for the past 50 years.

Who is it for?
