Shallow breathing affects the whole body.

Shallow chest breathing is often a sign your body is in a state of stress. In other words, shallow breathing can be a symptom of deeper, underlying issues, such as unresolved trauma or an ongoing stressful life situation. Body-Focused Therapy, when combined with breathwork, effectively works on the underlying mental-emotional issues that can be a contributing factor to shallow or anxious breathing. This results in dramatic changes in your ability to breathe deeply and calmly. 

What is breathwork and breathwork therapy?

Safely release past pain locked in your body and ease day-to-day stress.

Breath is one of the most vital yet underrated bodily functions for health and healing. Breathwork is a term that refers to conscious breathing techniques, practices or exercises to improve mental strength, emotional balance and physical wellbeing.

Breathwork therapy often involves intentionally changing the depth and rate of your breathing to activate specific responses in your mind and body. Breathwork is also an active form of meditation; it not only helps you to remain calm and connected in your daily life, it can also help you to safely release painful past memories stored within your body. 
In this way, breathwork can have a significant therapeutic effect, especially when incorporated with bodywork, energy healing and holistic counselling.

Why is breathwork important for health and healing?

 

A stressed body - stuck in "fight or flight" - cannot properly heal.
