Sophrology to reduce stress, manage strong emotions, overcome trauma …
The heart of sophrologyis to get to know our body and its reactions in order, in particular, to better manage our emotions. Thus, thanks to sophrology, we can reduce stress, lose weight, reduce sleep disorders, improve concentration, manage anger, live better during pregnancy … It is a “Swiss Army knife” discipline!
“It is important to know that the sophrologist works regularly in collaboration with other specialists in order to propose a solution adapted to each patient,” adds Patrice Iacovella. Thus, to accompany a child, the sophrologist can get in touch with a pediatrician or a speech therapist (for problems related to concentration).
To support an adult, collaboration with a midwife (in the context of pregnancy), an osteopath (in the event of chronic pain) or even a physiotherapist (for “blockages” problems) may be considered. “
