The breath is the life energy. The breathing pattern reflects how you go through life.
Most people use only part (30%) of their respiratory system.
In this form of therapy, the respiratory system is opened according to the method of connected breathing. This means that the pause between inhalation and exhalation is omitted. The inhalation is longer than the exhalation. Pressure points can be stimulated in a session to open and increase breathing. This causes the life energy (ki) to flow again, which influences the quality of life at different levels.
What does connected breathing do?
The flow of respiration on a physical level removes toxins, increases energy and supports the natural recovery capacity. On a mental and emotional level it is about purification and integration. The higher vibration frequency of the breath causes the heavier energy of repressed feelings and thoughts to move. Negative emotional experiences can thus be let go of or be integrated in the body without the need to relive them or name them. As a result of this integration, an expansion of consciousness can be experienced on a spiritual level and a feeling of connection with a larger whole. Space, creativity, relaxation and inner peace are created.
Connected breathing has a relieving and restorative effect on:
- Pain complaints (such as headache, migraine and back pain),
- Sleeping problems
- Stress and tension complaints
- Fatigue, stress, burnout
- Gloom, depression
- Suppressed anger, stuck emotions
- Feelings of fear
- Hyperventilation, asthma and bronchitis
Connected breathing is complementary and supports all other forms of healing and therapy.
A connected breathing treatment
For the connected breathing session you lay down on a mat on the floor. There are pillows and blankets for comfort, but it is nice if you (in the winter period) bring extra warm socks and a sweater.
