In 1960, Professor Alfonso Caycedo (hence the name Caydian sophrology), a neuropsychiatrist by profession, created sophrology. It was created to offer support to those of its patients who were in a state of unhappiness but not in pathology.
It helps to support well-being. It allows everyone to know themselves better and to take care of themselves, based on an awareness of who they are, their potential and their desires for life in order to allow them to evolve towards them.
Recognised by the European Parliament as a “non-conventional medicine worthy of interest”, sophrology now finds its place in hospitals, companies, colleges and lycées, in sports and in the daily lives of many people. It does not replace medicine in any way, but accompanies it.
