Breathwork isn’t just woohoo spiritual stuff. Scientific research has been to show it can help you heal—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Breathwork is for everyone!
If you have a specific goal you are trying to achieve, like reduced stress, increased energy, better focus, a breathwork healing session can help. Health benefits of breathwork include:
- Breathing problems such as asthma
- Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea
- Anxiety, stress, or depression
- Grief, anger, or resentment
- Loss of direction, purpose, or intention
- Inspiration, motivation, or creativity
- Or, just create an experience of inner bliss!
During breathwork, you can increase your energy and help you focus on the good feelings by releasing serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine (the feel good chemicals of the brain)
There is a direct connection between the breath and your psychological, emotional, spiritual, and physical wellbeing. Simply using the power of your breath, additional health benefits of breathwork can provide radical healing transformation in the following areas:
1. Breathwork Activates The Vagus Nerve
When you do breathwork, you activate the vagus nerve, activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Activating the vagus nerve puts you into a state of calm, peace, and focus.
As well, when you switch from the sympathetic nervous system (the day-in-day-out beta brainwave state) to the parasympathetic nervous system, your move into an optimal state for the immune system to naturally heal the body.
2. Breathwork Triggers Stem Cell Healing
Once in a state of calm, you activate the pineal gland in the brain. In this state, the brain sends out healing chemical and electrical signals through the vagus nerve to the rest of the organs in the body. As well, it triggers healing in stem cells in the body to activate physical and emotional healing.
3. Breathwork Creates Heart-Mind Coherence
When you’re in that calm and focused state, you create heart-mind coherence. Heart-mind coherence establishes a state of calm that is easier for focus when going into meditation.
4. Supercharge Your Creative Life Force Energy
Pranayama rhythmic breathing and deep kumbhaka breath retention can charge your electrical, creative, life force energy and move it up through the body for healing and transformation.
By using the power of your breath you connect the dots between science and the metaphysical through the physiology and of rhythmic breathing, breath retention, and transcendental meditation. I do events all the time to enhance people’s experience of their breath, particularly in the Palm Springs, CA area.
You are your own medicine and you create your reality. So, you might as well create a life you love using the power of your breath!
