Why do we need relief from stress and the impact it has on our body?

We are not designed to be on the go and under stress long term. Our primitive response to survival can get hijacked with our daily habits, our emotions and the things we think about.

One of the main habits that change when we are stressed is we breathe faster and recruit our back up breathing muscles. These are not designed to be used 17,000 plus times a day(the amount we breathe on average) and fatigue, tighten and can even create trigger points that can refer pain or alter movement patterns.

Learning which muscles are affected and how to release and relax them is one of the steps to reducing stress and breathing better long term.

Do you suffer from:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Stress
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Slow recovery or reduced performance (for athletes)
  • A feeling of not being able to take a deep breath
  • Irregular breathing pattern and lung problems
  • Inability to work through emotional trauma or grief?

These are all common symptoms of ineffective breathing which are triggered by our bodies stress reaction.
