BREATHWORK -

 CONSCIOUS CONNECTED

"an experiential field of study and practice that uses conscious connected breathing and body-mind techniques to support the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being.."

ABOUT

Many people are quite unaware of how to properly breathe and as a result health, vitality and energy levels are being drastically compromised.

As human beings we hold onto tension within our bodies and in doing so create physical, mental and emotional blockages. Conscious Connected Breathing (CCB) is a breathing self-healing technique held in a safe space that is grounded and meditational in nature in which the breather sits or lays down and intentionally connects the inhale with the exhale without any pauses. This is the correct way to breathe. 

A few sessions will enable you to use this technique for yourself as a lifelong tool. Many people have discovered an expanded state of consciousness as they improve their breathing process. Your life can open up and become more fulfilled through conscious breathing.

Every culture in the history of the world has, in one way or another acknowledged the existence of a life-force energy in the human body. The Indians call it prana, the Chinese call it chi, and the Japanese call it ki. In the West it is called human electricity. This energy can be attained and expressed in different ways, and so again each culture interprets it slightly differently. For example, prana and chi, as well as meaning ‘energy’ also means ‘breath’ because one can generate energy by practising breathing exercises.

For thousands of years, humans have understood breathing has a powerful influence over our physiological and psychological wellbeing. But many people still find it difficult to understand the link between breathing and its impact on our body’s physiology and stress levels. Research has shown the way we breathe has a powerful effect on how stressed we feel. When we feel stressed, one of the physiological changes that occurs is activation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight/flight response) and an immediate increase in respiration switching from slow, abdominal breathing to faster, shallower, chest breathing. This is a normal and healthy response in the short-term. If we are constantly triggering the sympathetic nervous system throughout the day however, we begin to habitually take shorter, shallower breaths with our upper chest, even though the stress may have passed. The danger is that this style of breathing sends signals to the brain that we are under stress when the reality is, it may not really be under stress at all.

During treatments, people are taught to use a full connected, diaphragmatic breath, which massages the various tissues and organs surrounding the diaphragm. The client’s breath is closely monitored and told where they are restricting their breathing. This then tells us where any blockages may be, they are gently adjusted to their breathing practice position whilst the use of techniques like hands-on acupressure, sound, movement and positive affirmations to help the breath open up and flow more freely are applied. Conscious breathing helps these blockages to be safely dispersed and integrated, encouraging a greater sense of well- being and a more balanced and harmonious state of mind. By practising conscious breathing frequently, the breath soon becomes less restricted, and alongside the physical benefits of freer energy flow throughout the body, people develop better mental and emotional health too.
