Breathing/Respiratory
Issues and Health

Your breathing health is essential to your well-being. Your breathing fitness makes a direct difference to your mind-body interpretation or experience. It is central to whether your stress or relaxation response is working and the traffic flow of messages between your body and mind. When your stress response is too active (e.g. breathing too fast), therapy slows it down—ever noticed how relaxation or meditation practices focus on slow deep abdominal breathing? In addition, breathing health has multiple benefits to anxiety, depression, sleep, pain and brain function.

Ever notice uncomfortable breathing, breathing too fast, holding your breath, sighing, yawning, feeling out of breath, unexplained tiredness at the end of the day?
