Just Breathe!

Ever find yourself in a stressful situation and then suddenly you are short of breath?  Too little or too much to compensate for the way you are feeling emotionally is a normal body reaction. To recover from that anxiety, try some conscious control breathing. We recommend taking some slow deep breathes in for 7 seconds, hold for 4 seconds and release for 7 seconds. Though it may feel unnatural at first the benefits greatly outweigh the discomfort. We always recommend deep breathing before a massage to set a slower pattern, enhance the relaxation response of the massage and align your body’s nervous system.  Want to feel better? Just breathe!
