This study showed an improvement in patients’ perception of sleep quality after a programme of just 5 sessions of Sophrology. A greater level of activity during the day was a further benefit. Future research will need to monitor patients over a longer period of time to assess sustainability of improvements. Read about the study (in French) here.
A more recent study of primary care patients using a randomised controlled trial showed a five-week structured Sophrology training program to be highly effective in reducing insomnia symptoms in primary care patients with moderate insomnia. This study also tracked patients over 3 and 6 months. Get access to the full study here.
