In addition to its many anti-stress properties, controlled breathing used in sophrology would have a positive impact on the brain, according to a recent study.

Researchers at NorthShore University Hospital on Long Island looked into benefits of breathing deep on the brain. To carry out their study, they used a relatively little known method which consists in placing electrodes in order to observe brain activity in a state of consciousness. Better than MRI, this technique allows you to witness the slightest reaction from the brain.

By observing brain reactions, the researchers were able to validate that the conscious and controlled breathing :

  • brought visible relief thanks to the electrodes;
  • allowed better self-control;
  • improved concentration skills.

The study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology in September 2017 raises how well a good mastery of breathing could allow everyone to quickly find a state of well-being, from control your emotions and D’improve cognitive skills.

The virtues of sophrology have been touted since its inception in 1960. It is only in recent years that researchers have been able to scientifically validate its benefits.
