Place de la sophrologie dans une approche pluridisciplinaire selon des médecins généralistes

Abstract : Background: patients show a growing interest for complementary and alternative medicines. They allow a global approach of their health status. This study aimed to analyze the place given to sophrology by general practitioners (GPs) in a multidisciplinary approach then to explore the contributions and limits and to assess the GPs’ satisfaction. Methods: qualitative study using semi-structured interviews with GPs established in the Côtes d’Armor in Fance recommending sophrology. A thematic analysis of the interviews was made. Results: eight interviews was conducted. The practices seemed homogeneous with an one-off appeal. The main indications were anxiety disorders, stress management, sleep disorders and pain management. Few risk and contraindications were expressed. The main earnings were a decrease in drug consumption and a better management of stress and emotions. The GPs described the sophrology as a complement inside a multidisciplinary patient care. The cost and the mistrust of the practice were the principal limits. The lack of communications and ethical issues were pointed out. All the practionners were satisfied. Conclusion: the sophrology seemed to be an interesting and complementary method to conventional care in a global approach. A scientifique evaluation and a better framework are needed to improve the integration of the practice.
