Indications and Benefits

Sophrology is a simple method for mental and physical wellbeing based on a practice that blends relaxation, breathing, movement and visualisation. The method was created by Dr. Alfonso Caycedo in 1960, and is designed to help each and every one unlock their true potential and transform their daily lives.

Sophrology helps to balance and harmonise your mind and body. It does not depend on age or fitness. In this way, it has many benefits across the whole span of your life. Once learned, the skills are within you – ready to ‘plug into’ at different times, whenever needed.
