ABOUT THIS EVENT: EVENT FLYER
Takes place on Wednesday, March 1st 2017 at 7:00 pm.
There are 7,000 practicing sophrology therapists in Europe but just one in Southern California. A native of France, Veronique Benchimol is San Diego’s first credentialed, certified Sophrologist. Defined as “a science of consciousness in harmony,” Sophrology was founded in 1960 by Dr. Alfonso Caycedo, a Spanish neuropsychiatrist who sought to combine Eastern and Western techniques and philosophies related to the mind and body.
“The overall objective of Sophrology is to restore your body, mind and spirit, by acknowledging all your sensations as positive, leading you to reestablish harmony in your life,” says Benchimol.
Sophrology is essentially a training tool that encourages the mind and body to handle life’s immediate and long-term stresses. It has three specialized fields: clinical, sports and education, and stress prevention and personal development. Benchimol specializes in the latter.
Through her 10 years of experience conducting individual and group sessions, Benchimol has helped athletes, students, expectant mothers, and individuals striving for self-development and stress management.
Presented in English with Cocktail reception and Q&A in French and English, in partnership with the Office of Science and Technology of the French Consulate in Los Angeles.
