Anyone can practise sophrology.

What is olfactotherapy ?

Olfactotherapy is a mind/body technique using essential oils to find and relieve emotional issues.  Olfactory system is directly linked to a part of the brain called 'limbic' brain.  Scents are used to connect directly to that part of the brain, collect souvenirs, part of person's history.  They are used to harmonize emotionally and sometimes physically the patient.

Reiki is an energy (hands-on) healing, originated from Japan.  It is aimed at improving emotional, physical and mental well-being. It enables relaxation.  It usually has a soothing effect on the body.

During a session, the client will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed.

The practitioner will place their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the patient’s head and body.

It is a technique to learn patient to relax both mentally and physically, using the body as a media.  Patient is usually lying down comfortably and the practitioner slightly moves parts of the patient’s body in order for the body to effectively lay down and relax.  Then some pressure points are handled smoothly in order to further relax.  The patient is clothed.

In that case, PSIO glasses can help you….

Equipped with a MP3 player, PSiO is a pair of glasses which combines music or relaxation by voice with light stimulation (either pulse or continued).

PSIO sessions can be organized for you to discover the glasses.  Specific sessions or workshops can also be booked on request, according to needs.
