Breathing and thus essentially oxygen is vitally important for humans to sustain life on Earth. A person can survive days without water and weeks without food, but how long can you stay alive without oxygen? Not only do humans need air to live, but the breathing process also provides amazing interconnected benefits throughout the entire mind-body system.
Many people have gotten out of their natural flow and representatively have lost their awareness of breath. There is a strong correlation between reactions to life events and our breathing. The average person's breathing mechanism is functioning at a fraction of its full potential. Too many people regularly take insufficient shallow breaths that only partially fill the lungs. Even worse some people forget to breath when stressed or overwhelmed by emotional or physical pain. Everything in our bodies down to the cellular level requires oxygen to function, so think of the detrimental effects of insufficient breathing. When full free breathing is restored, all bodily system start to work better. Through breath therapy, you will re-educate your body to breathe fully and effortlessly with correct diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing.
Breath Therapy is based on ancient Eastern principles and further explained by modern Western scientific methods. Various focused breathing techniques are used to induce relaxation, liberate inhibited breathing patterns, free up and release negative energy from past experiences, improve future stress response, channel vital energy or life force, and stimulate self-awareness.
When you understand and experience the influence your thoughts and emotions have on your breathing and body, you can learn how to use your breath to center yourself while processing through and pulling yourself out of negative states. You can use your breath to harmonize with the flow of life and your natural rhythm. Proper breathing profoundly affects your spiritual connectedness and consciousness. Breath awareness is an excellent tool for centering oneself, initiating present mindedness, and fostering a spiritual connection with yourself and the universe. It is the foundation of a very powerful self-directed healing process. Breath therapy is a vital component for health and an invaluable tool for change and personal growth.
