What is Sophrology?
The word sophrology comes from 3 greek words:
Sos = Harmony
Phren = conscience
Logos = study
Sophrology was invented by Dr. Caycedo, neuro-psychiatrist from Madrid.
It is a structured method to allow individuals to optimize their wellbeing and health.
It consists of a series of simple physical and mental exercises that when practiced regularly result in a relaxed healthy body and a calm focused mind.
These movements are called “dynamic relaxation” or “meditation in movement”.
Learning to control our body through these movements & breathing allows us to improve our perceptions of previous, present & future experiences.
A sophrology session is an equivalent to 2 hours of sleep.
People who practice Sophrology smile more, are happier, are more successful and take better decisions.
