What is Breathwork?

Breath Therapy works on the principle that there is a direct connection between the psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical well being and the openness of the breath.  The use of breathing techniques produces a self generated altered state of consciousness that can be used in much the same way as hypnosis with the client directing the process.  Experiences range from deep physical relaxation, emotional release, psychological understanding and expanded spiritual experiences.

The technique of Breathwork is employed to:
Induce a relaxation response 
Improve and correct breathing patterns
Release negative emotional energy and future stress response and Channel vital energy or life force
Stimulate self from past experiences, and improve awareness.

The simple act of daily breathing is the ultimate healer, but it is neglected, taken for granted and inhibited. ~unknown
