What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is an incredible tool used to heal and transform the body.
Breathwork regulates the nervous system, it shifts our state from a a sympathetic (fight or flight response) to a parasympathetic (rest and digest) response. With modern life, we are often living in the fight or flight response, feeling anxious and stressed from the world around us. Breathwork is the tool which allows us to release any stress or anxiety stored in the body, so we feel calm, clear, focused and relaxed. Breathwork also releases trauma (suppressed emotions) and dense negative energy from the body. Clients often feel lighter, calmer and instantly relaxed after a session.
I am trained using the Conscious Connected Breathing pattern which is an inhale and exhale though the mouth.
Benefits of breathwork:
- Reduces cortisol and anxiety
- Regulates the nervous system
- Reduces inflammation in the body
- Increases focus and energy levels
- Lowers blood pressure and increase circulation
- Boosts the immune system and improves digestion
- Releases supressed emotions/trauma in the body
- Explores altered states of consciousness
- Increases emotional resilience and capacity
- Increases mental clarity and motivation

Q: Do I need to bring anything? What should I wear?
A: Just bring yourself and wear comfortable loose clothing. Avoid drinking coffee and eating food 2-3 hours before the session. No alcohol should be consumed on the day of treatment.
Q: I've never done breathwork before, is this for me?
A: Yes absolutely! I will guide you through the whole process. Complete beginners are welcome.
Q: What happens in a session?
A: We will have a brief discussion and I will teach you how to do the breathwork technique. This flows into the breathwork journey, where you will be lying down on the comfy Reiki table (or yoga mat if it is a deep breathe) with a blanket on top of you. You will be breathing to a specially curated playlist of music. After the breathwork, you will remain lying down during the meditation where you return to your normal breathing pattern, letting the healing frequencies wash over you. After, I will guide you back into the space and will have you sit up for some Organic tea and a discussion to wrap up the session.
Q: How will I feel? I'm nervous...
A: During the breathwork you may feel tingles in your body, heat and some lightheadedness. This is normal as we are changing the pH in the body and increasing our oxygen levels. Comfort is key and you will feel safe to fully let go and enjoy the experience.
Q: How will I feel afterwards?
A: You will feel lighter, calmer and relaxed. You may feel a release of emotions and stress. Often clients feel 'floaty' or euphoric due to the altered state of consciousness. I recommend not having any social events planned after the session, so you can go home and integrate what came up for you during the session. These sessions are powerful and can bring a lot of clarity.
