Art of integrated living
Sophrology is a solution-based, psychosomatic therapy that invites us to develop a more conscientious perception of our daily life and our body by combining controlled breathing in a series of gentle exercises and various positive visualizations/meditation. This practice enables the alignment of the following aspects within a defined time and a personalized intention : physical, emotional, communication, and actions.
Sophrology can be practiced alone, or as an excellent companion to any ongoing physical or psychological therapy. It facilitates the integration and embodiment of all the new information in a coherent manner into your day-to-day life.
As a sophrologist, Ms. Tsai applies her experiences as a teacher/coach and her studies in psychology (B.A. Applied Psychology, Boston University) to help others who are in need. In addition, Ms. Tsai is currently in the the certification process for Traumatic Stress Studies from the Traumatic Research Center directed by neuropsychiatrist, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. Ms. Tsai received her training and certification as a sophrologist from l'École Française Supérieure de Sophrologie in Paris.
I work with professionals and students to help them achieve their objectives by aligning their targeted intentions in their actions, spoken words, physical sensations, and emotions.
This is executed by a defined period (between 9-11 session/weeks, depending on the specification of the intention) involving the following methods:
1. Consulting with the individual to understand needs and identifying solutions-based practices to meet the needs.
2. Designing a completely personalized protocol based on reaching the client's goal that includes a set of tangible and simple exercises and consciousness assimilation/visualization that follow the course of the individual's progress.
3. Creating practice opportunities to integrate new skills and sensations into their daily routines.
4. Delivering measurable results to meet personal/work goals.
