When you breathe well, every organ in your body benefits. Breathing properly creates the perfect space for your body to rest and repair. If you want your general health and wellbeing to flourish, breathing is an obvious starting point.
Breathing Pattern Disorders
Did you know that your breathing pattern can alter over time due to a wide variety of reasons; respiratory disorders (asthma, COPD, etc), hormonal upsets, poor postures, chest wall injuries, chest surgeries, chronic pain, nasal/sinus problems, high stress levels, anxiety, traumatic events or grief. In many of these cases, the upper lung inflates too much creating a hyperventilation syndrome. In other cases, breath may become too shallow. Commonly, the diaphragm is weak and requires strengthening to promote an improved breathing pattern.
Diaphragmatic breathing is a simple, natural way of dropping your heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure as well as optimising blood flow to the muscles, heart and brain.
