The origins of Sophrology
The term “sophrology” was created in 1960 by Alfonso Caycedo, a Spanish neuropsychiatrist of Colombian origin. Inspired by ancient Greek, it means study of the harmonization of consciousness. Originally, this term referred to hypnosis techniques used in hospitals by psychiatrists. This method allowed patients to become aware of their conditions and to make them actors in their treatment.
It was from 1967 that other techniques enriched the hypnotic bases of sophrology. such as the "Coué method" (positive thinking), "Jacobson's progressive relaxation" (relaxation of muscle tension), "Schultz's autogenic training" (self-relaxation by suggestion), phenomenology (learning to non-judgment), yoga (stimulation of breathing and muscle relaxation) and zen (practice of meditation). The amalgamation of all these techniques in a single method makes relaxation therapy complete and effective.
In 1972, the first Congress of Sophrology in France took place at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital and from 1974 sophrology began to emerge from the medical world to become today a preventive discipline.
