Art of integrated living 

Sophrology therapy

Sophrology is a 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.
