Breath Better With CORE
It is difficult sometimes to realize how breathing is so important. It delivers oxygen to where it is needed in the body and as the saying goes, “breath is life.” The better you breathe, the better you move, the better you exercise, the better you can deal with daily stress.
As babies and young children, most of us breathed freely and naturally with our entire bodies. But our sedentary work environments and lifestyles, along with the ever increasing stress of our busy lives, has conditioned many of us to shallow, constricted breathing. Many different healing modalities such as meditation, yoga, as well as CORE somatic therapies can definitely improve flexibility and breathing.
CORE somatic therapies work with the myofascial system. The myofascial system supports and stabilizes muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones, producing movement and regulating circulation. This myofascial network gives the human structure its shape and form, and either allows or restricts efficient movement and breathing capacity as well.
Working appropriately with the myofascial system and over the fascia or tissue surrounding specific respiratory muscles such as the diaphragm, chest or intercostals eliminates chronic neuromuscular strains and habits caused by poor posture, stress, injuries, overuse, or immobility. This increases breathing and physical awareness, allowing for more efficient postural and movement patterns.
CORE somatic therapies support personal and professional growth, while helping maintain a high level of wellness. You can breath better with CORE.
