What is Sophrology?
Sophrology is a self-development approach, a practice and a philosophy. Its aim is to build resilience through better awareness. Unlike many therapies it focuses on both body and mind. It is a wonderful blend of Eastern and Western philosophies and practices, combining breathing, visualisation, gentle movement and relaxation techniques to bring both body and mind into harmony.
Being guided in a state of relaxation (called dynamic relaxation) makes it easier to feel connected at a profound level and unveil our full potential. Sophrology allows us to ground ourselves in the present, feel at peace with the past and face the future positively.
Lasting benefits, widely recognised
Sophrology is a simple practice enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities, from all walks of life.
Sophrology has been widely practised on the Continent for 50 years and is well-respected, especially in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Portugal. It is applied in different settings including schools, hospitals, maternity clinics, community centres, corporate environments and rehabilitation centres. Many leading sportsmen and women also use the technique.
Sophrology is growing in popularity throughout the UK, particularly in school and corporate environments. Sophrology is recognised by the Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine.
