  2 - Development of the functions of the two cerebral hemispheres

the functions of the two cerebral hemispheres are different. In Westerners (with the exception of artists) the left brain is used more. it is the seat of logical and scientific thought, of articulated language, of concrete intelligence and of consciousness. Orientals use the right brain more, the seat of creativity, intuition and abstract thought, it would be the place of dreams and the unconscious.

sophrology pursues a double objective:

- increase the percentage of neurons we use (we only use about 10%)

- Facilitate the passage of information from one hemisphere to another, and to develop the right hemispherical functions (creativity, intuition to strongly inhibited by our Western, rational and scientific education.

4 - Learn to become more aware

Currently, our education conditions us from an early age, so that we conform to the standard created by our society. we must be like everyone else, devoid of individuality and originality, irresponsible, assisted and terribly directed by our unconscious.

The subconscious is our psychic army that we must mobilize in all the dynamics of change and goal achievement.

The goal of sophrology is to gradually integrate as much as possible of the contents of the unconscious in order to become "more conscious" and responsible, capable of further influencing the organic functions which are usually beyond our control.

5 - Development of positive thinking

Sophrology teaches you to think positively. For example, the child instead of thinking "I'm not going to make it" in front of his exam copy, learns to think "I'm going to make it". During the sessions at the sophro-liminal level, he saw "his victory" which he will have acquired thanks to his work and his ability to control anxiety, the stress generated by the examination situation. Thinking positively completely changes the way we look at the world and ourselves, profoundly modifies our behavior and allows us to better adapt to the vagaries of life.

it is therefore used to be more resistant to the vagaries of life and at all ages.

We can liken this to the image of the three little pigs: remember? STORY TELLING!

at the beginning, the person is fragile, he is in a straw house which collapses at the slightest breath; gradually, session after session, it strengthens itself with wooden planks to become more solid, and to be made of bricks. All this while learning non-judgment, self-confidence, self-esteem, ...

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Sophrology is a very effective Alternative and Complementary Method (CAM) recognized by doctors, patients and the "State". It has more and more its place in the multidisciplinary care of painful patients ... The Sophrologist works in symbiosis with the patient. He listens, unlocks, soothes, reassures, helps ... he accompanies until the last breath. Its follow-up can be more extensive, on caregivers, families ... Its role takes on all its importance within a team in a medical environment (nursing home, nursing home, Pasa, gerontological clinic, palliative care services, end of life, hospitals, clinics ...). Even if sophrology is increasingly recommended by doctors and other health professionals, it remains a question for many people. Some reduce it to simple relaxation and better breathing.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Yet relaxation therapy is much more than that

Sophrology is first of all the story of a neuropsychiatrist, Alfonso Caycédo, who in the 1960s created a dynamic science that he called "sophrology", that is to say the study (logos) of consciousness (phrên) in harmony (sôs). It is therefore a scientific method to study consciousness and strengthen capacities and values ​​in those who practice it regularly.
The people learn with the sophrologist to relax the body, to eliminate tensions, by de-somatizing the negative and to be positive, that is to say to see Life with other filters, with a different look and light. .

Small worries are thus put into perspective. It is seeing the glass as half full rather than half empty.
The fact of becoming aware of the sensations of the body and of its breathing allows the sophroniser to adjust them in order to better live his daily life and become an actor in his existence. He no longer undergoes events but accepts them as a new experience.
All of this is learned with the three key techniques which include sophronization (awareness of the body in the process of relaxing), sophro-displacement of the negative (with gentle, calm breathing), and sophro-activation (of l energy and positive).

Sophrology does not stop there ...

It also includes more specific techniques aimed at improving sleep, managing anxiety-provoking situations such as an operation or exams, increasing concentration, better memorizing, and better performance during a competition.

The list is very long.
It is aimed at adults, as well as teenagers and children. For the latter, the techniques are adapted according to age. For toddlers, it's pre-sophrology focused on play.

So it is mainly used to be more resistant to the vagaries of life and at all ages.


What are the differences between relaxation and sophrology?

First of all, the purposes are different. Relaxation provides calm, relaxation and stops there while sophrology allows much more.

Sophrology will allow us to gradually discover ourselves, to learn about our needs, our functioning, to activate new capacities, such as self-confidence and self-esteem ...., and our values. The goal is to transform ourselves to be more in tune with the feeling of self. All this while relaxing and de-stressing us.

Then the positions during the sessions will be different. In relaxation, you will be lying down or semi lying down. In sophrology, learners are seated or standing. The lying position is only reserved for people who are unable to practice in the other two positions. The point is for you to become aware, so it's best not to fall asleep.

The effect of breathing on the brain

Researchers have indeed demonstrated the link between breathing and the feeling of calm it provides. They have shown that long inhaling and exhaling have a direct effect on the brain. By being stimulated, certain neurons would come to inhibit the activity of a region responsible for stress and anxiety. This would naturally cause a feeling of calm and well-being.

Their work thus demonstrates the value of regularly practicing deep and controlled breathing, especially when one is in the grip of stress.

Sophrology to work on your breathing

Sophrology sessions are a good way to learn techniques to calm down effectively. Whether in a group or individually, the sophrologist invites participants to become aware of the rhythm of their natural breathing. If the objective of the session is to eliminate stress, the work will consist in particular of lengthening its breathing.

Sophrology to regain self-confidence

We most often put a foot in the sophrologist when we need to increase its success, or manage a chronic disease, pain or overcome a fear, overcome mourning. The results of sophrology are there, visible on a daily basis. But what is more precious, more discreet, is the transformation that takes place in everyone.

The anger subsides, the fearful dares, the timid reveals himself, the flayed shines again, love is present in everyone.

Sophrology as a revealer of self-love, self-love

The magic word: love. It is not about conditional and / or compulsive love, the 'I want, I want you, you want me, he wants me'. But it's more about 'I love, I love myself, I love you, I love you'. Unconditional love, which allows to contemplate the beauty in oneself and around oneself, the love which allows to be in harmony within oneself and to feel it all around oneself, the love of oneself, l love of others, compassion, kindness, patience, self-confidence, selflessness.

Sophrology reconnects us with our deep nature, our inner beauty, our acceptance of ourselves.

From this wonder, from this inner peace that one feels at the end of a sophrology session, one can then consciously choose to offer it to oneself for the days to come and to share it with those around you, just by being present to oneself. , just by being oneself.

Sophrology covers head to toe

Sophrology anchors in the ground, inhabits the body, releases the sensations, the pleasant perceptions that are generated during the session. Sophrology makes us rediscover our body, vibrates our perceptions, our sensations, our emotions.

The standing practice of dynamic relaxation exercises promotes this anchoring in the earth. Its stimuli activate the perception of our body diagram, our carnal envelope and what is inside. Session after session we no longer feel empty inside but filled with fullness. What well-being!

Sophrology and its principle of positive action initiates us into positive psychology. All the energy, all the thoughts channeled during the sophrology exercise are directed at the end of the session towards a project, a hope, a hope. Everything is channeled, ready to be projected into our life. For some, it is reminiscent of the law of attraction. For everyone, this balance, this harmony generated by the exercise of diffuse sophrology, radiates, is palpable and becomes available for what we really want.

Positive psychology is also to welcome what is, without positive or negative judgment. It is to be there with oneself, with the others, aware of the objective reality of things, of events, without vulnerability.

Be in full awareness.

Sophrology, a school of Being as a facilitator of life

Self-confidence is a quality that parents often ask for for their children: relaxation therapy allows them to feel their presence and develops self-confidence, inner strength, serenity and love.

Each sophrology posture makes us vertical, connects us between earth and sky, helps us find our rightful place, this famous 'I am there, I am fully Me'.

Reinforced by this self-confidence (which means: trusting oneself, having faith in oneself), the child, the adolescent, the adult resumes to inhabit his life path, to dare to be, to live fully in consciousness. This is perhaps the inner strength of sophrology, this supplement gained in addition to the initial request expressed at the first appointment. People testify to it like this: 'I no longer have back pain, stomach ache, headache, .. and above all I feel so much better in my skin, in harmony, I'm fine'.

To each his sophrology to strengthen his love and give it consciously to himself, to a part of his being in pain or around him. Sophrology reveals love. And from love to the soul, there is only one more step that we always cross or transcend with the heart.
