It accompanies the person at all ages of its life and allows her thanks to its own resources to develop its consciousness, to amplify its well-being or to favor a better well-being, to improve its quality of life, to stimulate and to strengthen its abilities, its qualities, its values to develop and use its potential.

The relaxation therapy in consulting-room: 
  • It is practiced in individual sessions when the request is specific, and requires a tailor-made individual support.

Whatever is practiced in individual sessions or in group, it is essential to make the exercises regularly, daily if possible, to appropriate its technique and perpetuate its benefits.
