Stress Relief Through Breath Meditation

by Kris Cassidy

Founder of Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation

If you are like most people you experience some kind of stress on a daily basis. For some the level of daily stress can be debilitating. The American Institute of Stress says that stress is America’s number one health problem. It’s been estimated that 75 – 90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress related problems. And it has been medically proven that stress has a direct impact on the immune system.

So, how can you manage the stress in your life? World-renowned cardiologist Dr. Dean Ornish says that deep breathing is the best form of stress management known to man.

As the founder of Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation, one of the questions I get asked the most is “How does Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation help with managing stress and stress related ailments such as depression, anxiety and chronic pain?  

Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation is a simple and powerful way to use breathing to activate your own healing energy and life force, and to release stress on a cellular level. It supports physical, emotional and mental healing, as you simultaneously connect more to spirit. And by oxygenating your blood through breathwork you can enjoy greater vitality and the health benefits of increased detoxification.

I believe Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation is a most powerful tool for stress management. In just one 90-minute session of Breakthrough Breathwork Meditation you can experience a deep calm, and a feeling of inner peace and wellbeing. Many clients have told me that after just one session they felt the most relaxed they’d ever felt in their life. 

Don’t let stress ruin your life, your health and your relationships. Find the peace and relief that you deserve and need now.

Breathwork during a massage session

During my 2 hour massage today I set myself up to do a breathwork session for at least the first hour of the massage. I have done this before, where I let the massage therapist know that I’m going to be focused on my breathing so they can support me.

I’ve done a breathwork session a few other times during massage and love what happens. While keeping my focus on my breath, connecting breathing, I find that the therapist can go deeper into my body as I breath through what might feel uncomfortable-and as I am focused on my breathing I find that my body also naturally relaxes and opens up more to allow a deeper massage to happen.

For me, doing breathwork while getting a massage allows energy to move more easily through my body and especially when the therapist hits a spot that is tense or blocked or where I am holding on to something in my body. When I breath through the uncomfortableness of the pressure and let go of any resistance there seems to be a release of energy. Not only physically, but I experienced a few moments of letting go in the release by crying.

Breathwork, whether during a massage or just a regular session is such a wonderful way to open up, to let go of tension, to release emotions and allow our natural healing energy to work with us for deep emotional and physical healing along with connecting more deeply to our true nature.
