Origins

SO-PHRO-LOGY

It comes from the Greek SOS (harmony), PHREN (consciousness) and LOGOS (study).

Sophrology = the study of consciousness in harmony.

Sophrology was developed by the neuro-psychiatrist Professor Alfonso Caycedo in the 1960s. It is inspired by:

- Western techniques such as Jacobson progressive relaxation, Schultz autogenic training, phenomenology and hypnotherapy;

- Eastern techniques such as Yoga, Buddhist meditation and Japanese zen.

What Sophrology is not

Sophrology is NOT a magic wand.

Let’s be clear about this: you will get out as much as you put in.

Sophrology is a discipline, a philosophy and a way of life.
It requires an open mind and most importantly it requires PRACTICE.
