The ancient lost art of breathing

No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you're not breathing properly. Breathing is the first thing we do when we are born and the last thing we do before we die, yet most of us pay little attention to it throughout our lives. Breathing is something we do automatically, but it is also a convenient tool to build healthy self-care habits early in life. Low and slow belly breathing is an excellent way to interrupt the stress cycle and help yourself and your kids feel calm, reduce anxiety, and release physical stress effects on the body. The breath is always with us, it is the most effective calming tool.

In fact, there is nothing more essential to our health and wellbeing than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences.

Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, allergies, asthma and autoimmune disease, and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of ancient wisdom and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry and human physiology. The latest evidence based research on 'Breath" turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head.

You will never breathe the same again.

Sound Therapy is effective in not only achieving a state of relaxation but it also has a way of moving through blockages in the body. Sound Therapy has been known to help treat such conditions as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, sleep disorders, pain and autism.

Sound Therapy is thought to improve integration in the cerebellum, an area near the brain stem which controls many automatic functions and overall sensory and motor integration. The filtering which causes sudden bursts of high-frequency sound stimulates increased firing of neurons.

With the help of sound therapy, your stress levels get reduced and to are able to focus more on building and strengthening relationships. By using specific frequencies to help re-balance brain function, sound therapy can help you think clearer and avoid the temptation to rely on self-destructive and addictive habits.

Sound waves wash over us at every second of every minute, and hour of every day and continue to vibrate endlessly. The sound vibrations of the sound healing instruments penetrate deep into the tissue. This improves blood circulation and metabolism, regulates muscle tension and deeply stimulates the tissue.

Science is still catching up to understanding how sound heals, but the current research is promising. A review of 400 published scientific articles on music as medicine found strong evidence that music has mental and physical health benefits in improving mood and reducing stress.
