Sophrology

Sophrology will enable you to regain a feeling of well-being and activate your full potential. It will also enable you to get to know yourself better and face the daily challenges of life with serenity.

Sophrology in a nutshell

Sophrology is a practice that can help you create a greater sense of well-being in your everyday life. It can activate your potential through a combination of breathing and relaxation exercises, mental suggestions and positive visualization methods, which can collectively address your emotions, mind and body. Sophrology empowers you with a greater understanding of yourself and the world around you; it helps you to face daily challenges, with serenity, and anchor yourself in the present moment.

Sophrology acts altogether on your body, your mind and your emotions with a combination of breathing and relaxation exercises, as well as the visualization of mental images.

There are two types of exercises:

  • dynamic relaxation exercises based on smooth movements in association with breathing exercises
  • sophronizations which are visualizations exercises guided by the voice of the Sophrologist.

Sophrology was created in the 1960s by Alfredo Caycedo, a neuropsychiatrist.

It brings together the best of Western and Eastern techniques such as: hypnosis, relaxation methods, positive suggestion technique, meditation, yoga, zazen…

The term Sophrology was inspired by ancient Greek and means the study of the harmonization of consciousness (sôs: harmonious; phren: spirit; logos: science).

"A great session to discover sophrology"

By Hélène Lesturgie

People under stress are guaranteed to relax. Good to know: the therapist offers zoom sessions. I tried it and I recommend it. It works! During the session I did simple exercises which I can now to repeat at will. I felt deeply relaxed after the session.

"Very professional"

By Hernán Morales

A very professional person. We worked on my fatigue (eyes, face and back) by videoconference. I initially doubted that I could concentrate at home, but thanks to Alexandra's very precise auditory guidance, it was very easy and with very effective results. Thank you Alexandra!
