Breathwork also called 'breath therapy' is an alternative therapy model in which the body is reminded to breathe naturally with a focus on the main muscle of respiration; the diaphragm. Each person develops a unique breath pattern parallel to their life experience. During this natural process [a breath session] allowing any change within the existing pattern intrinsically opens up possibilities for change to take place in the relationship between that person and her/his life depending on the person’s eagerness and openness.
Breathwork can also be a powerful tool to train the body and the mind and therefore to reveal the real potential of one’s self. Your breathing is an accurate indicator of your emotions. It can easily be observed how emotions and thoughts can affect the ease and rhythm of one’s breathing.
The purpose of receiving breath sessions is to become aware of your breath, to be comfortable in your breath, and use it as a tool to know yourself.
The ultimate intent of this model is to learn to do self-sessions in order to become self-sufficient and maintain a consistency for an open diaphragm.
