Sophrology in the press

"The sister to mindfulness and meditation, this practice promises to clear and de-stress the mind using a combination of powerful relaxation techniques. A bold claim, indeed.

As someone who practices yoga and meditation regularly, I was intrigued when I heard about sophrology. What is this practice that is being touted as ‘the new mindfulness’? ...

So did it work?

For me, yes, it did. My mind felt clearer, my body felt softer. Leaving the clinic, I felt a renewed sense of calm which I managed to maintain – even while trekking home on the overcrowded Central Line... I would definitely recommend a session to anyone who is interested in using an alternative method of relaxation."

"You’ve heard of mindfulness, now meet its dynamic young cousin Sophrology.  ...it’s huge elsewhere in Europe and on its way to the UK...  The French rugby team and media-magnate-turned-wellbeing-guru Arianna Huffington swear by this westernised amalgamation of yoga, Tibetan Buddhism, Japanese Zen, hypnosis, psychology and neurology... After my first week of Sophrology, there’s no doubt I feel calmer, perkier, less in my own head and less likely to grope for the wine bottle after sundown, so I feel inclined to carry on and see where it takes me."

"While many people try and fail to reap the benefits of meditative practices, taking up Sophrology could be the key to unlocking your mind's potential...  You can use Sophrology to your personal gain, whether you simply need to top up your energy levels or are feeling strained as you go about everyday life...  From there, visiting a Sophrologist to find out more about how it works will enable you to incorporate small practices in your life that will improve your life in the long run."
