What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a powerful, safe and gentle breathing technique which releases
stress from the body and increases your energy
level, for the purpose of experiencing more ease
and pleasure in your life. Developed in the early
70's it has been practiced by many thousands
of people throughout the world. In a Breathwork
session, a professionally trained Breathworker
guides your breath in a manner that increases
the level of oxygen in your body, which increases
your energy. The increased levels of oxygen stimulate
the body's natural ability to cleanse itself.
Since 70% of body toxins are eliminated through
breathing, it supports us to learn to breathe
freely and fully. Breathwork also raises the
blood's alkaline level, a result sought by many
health care professionals.
Other substantial benefits of
breathwork are that it releases stored emotions
from the body and accesses the part of the brain
that stimulates memory. By learning to breathe
consciously, one is able to uncover and release
limiting thought patterns from the past. You
can receive tremendous value from discovering
how current issues in your life originated from
decisions you may have made earlier on. By becoming
aware of these decisions you are able to choose
differently in present time. Becoming consciously
aware of patterns or undesirable habits is the
first step to change.
What a Breathwork session looks like
Each session with a Breathworker
involves a consultation and approximately an
hour of connected breathing. In the consultation,
your Breathworker will have the opportunity to
discuss with you where you are in your life now
and how they can best support you. Your Breathworker
will collect information from you with the goal
of supporting you in resolving current issues
and changing undesirable patterns.
A Breathworker is a professionally
trained facilitator who will guide your breath
in a way that enables you to process what occurs
during the session. They will guide and support
you through emotional releases, thoughts and
memories that may surface and physical sensations
that you may experience during a session. Your
professional Breathworker is highly skilled at
helping you trace complex issues in your life
to the origins of your subconscious mind. By
becoming aware of this pertinent information,
your Breathworker will support you in finding
solutions and resolutions.
There are already scores of
medical practitioners who recognize the value
of deep breathing and the list is growing. For
example, world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Dean
Ornish says in his book Dr. Dean Ornish's
Program for Reversing Heart Disease that
deep breathing is the best stress reducer known
to man. It has been medically proven that stress
has a direct impact on the immune system. When
your stress level is up, your immune system is
down: when your stress level is down, your immune
system is up. We can reduce our stress through
deep breathing, which then boosts the immune
system. We need to keep our immune system strong
so we can fight off sickness. The immune system
is our number-one line of defense against the
viruses, bacteria and other invaders that make
us ill, causing everything from minor colds and
flu to some major illnesses. Deep breathing increases
the oxygen levels in the blood, which strengthens
our immune systems.
Dr. Alec Borsenko states, "Oxygen
gets rid of toxicity. Bacteria, viruses and parasites
are destroyed in the presence of oxygen-especially
cancer." Breathing controls the flow of the lymphatic
system. We have four times more lymphatic fluid
then blood. Lymphatic cells release toxins from
Paul Bragg, author of Super Breathing
for Super Energy and also the person who developed
the first health food store in this country in the
late 1930's says in his book that we are slowly committing
suicide in this country because of the way we live
and breath. According to Bragg, shallow breathing starves
the body of vital oxygen and causes premature aging.
Bragg notes that oxygen-starved people go to bed tired
and wake up tired. They suffer from headaches, constipation,
indigestion, muscular aches and pains, stiff joints,
aching backs, and the list goes on.
Not only do most people breathe shallowly,
barely using one-fifth of the lungs' capacity to increase
oxygen flow to their bodies, but, on top of everything
else, there is much less oxygen in the air to breath.
Two hundred years ago, our air was composed of 38 percent
oxygen and 1 percent carbon dioxide. Today, because of
pollution and other factors, it is 19 percent oxygen
and 25 percent carbon dioxide.
Dr. McVea explains the importance of
oxygen this way: "More than anything else, good health
and well-being is dependent on the maximum production,
maintenance and flow of energy, which is produced
by oxygen. Oxygen contributes to proper metabolic
function, better circulation, assimilation, digestion
and elimination. It helps purify the blood, keeping it
free from cellular build-up. Sufficient oxygen gives
the body a chance to rebuild itself and strengthen its
immune system. It is our natural defense against disease.
Medical research shows that over 90 percent of the body's energy is produced by oxygen, and that the more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce. Our ability to think, feel, and act comes from the energy created by oxygen.
The Breathwork technique that we use, delivers vital oxygen to the body, delivering it to the blood, which in turn delivers it to our cells. Breathwork is one of the greatest catalysts to keeping the immune system peaked. It also has a calming and energizing effect on the nervous system. A Breathwork session is a total package for stress reduction, relaxation, good health and well being. Oxygenation is the key to living a healthy and balanced life.
