A Complete Breath – A Healing Breath

Category : blog

The first thing we do for ourselves after birth is breathing. It connects us to the outside world. The way we are born breathing, called diaphragmatic or abdominal, we lose as we grow and we stress begins to affect, Anxiety, fear, the self-imposed,… The shift of diaphragmatic breathing to chest, means that we only use a small portion of our lung capacity and as a result our blood and organs are not as oxygenates as may.

Equally, physical processes, mental and emotional are directly related to breathing. It is not possible to separate, but what we can do is learn to control your breathing to control our health. In many Eastern disciplines, as in the Qigong, collected this mutual influence between breathing and health, and working with the breath to achieve maximum benefit from the exercises.

When you breathe in a conscious, and therefore in depth and complete, can achieve a state of great relaxation, getting muscle strains are eliminated, providing more oxygen to the blood and organs and becoming more clear and uncluttered to mind.

There are three different types of breathing:

1. Clavicular breathing is the shallowest and the worst of the three types. During inhalation shoulders and collarbone are raised while the abdomen contracts. It takes a lot of effort in exchange for a minimal amount of air.

2. Thoracic breathing is performed with the intercostal muscles and the chest expanding is the second type of breathing incomplete.

3. Deep abdominal breathing is the best of these three, the air reaching the lower and wider lungs. Breathing is slow and deep, effected by both proper use of the diaphragm.

In fact, neither type is complete. A full breath combines all three, beginning with a deep breath and continuing through inhalation intercostal and clavicular areas.

How to get proper breathing?

For a simple way to experience what a proper diaphragmatic breathing, lie on your back, place your hands on the abdomen at the level of the diaphragm and inhale and exhale slowly. The abdomen should expand and contract while breathing the expiry. Try to become aware of this movement abdominal.

Although this exercise seems very simple and easy, normally it takes some practice to get properly realize. The most important, and when they mastered the technique in a relaxed state, is to be able to make full abdominal breathing in our daily lives.
