Jan 2015 News: Just Breathe in Buellton

Chiropractic Buellton CA Wellness Lake Fresh Air

Hey out there! How is it going with your daily breathing?

If you have forgotten, gotten lazy, or just not challenged enough, here are 2 new techniques to add if you’d like more of a challenge or needed a reminder. Please call our chiropractic office in Buellton today to schedule an appointment!


One Is Changing The Body Position and Not Feel Any Strain In Breathing: Lie on your back, legs extended, arms relaxed by your sides.

If this breathing is too simple then progress to stomach lying “turn over” until breathing is easy. When you’ve mastered that, go to a kneeling position. Remain balanced in kneeling with no recruiting of accessory breathing muscles. When that is easy, go to a lunge or single knee (genuflect) position. Remain balanced while keeping breathing easy and soft.
A measure of success would be to remain in each of the fore mentioned positions for a minute before progressing to the next position.

The Second Technique Is To Practice Different Types of Inhalation and Exhalation Methods, and find out where there is breathing imbalance/weakness and develop it. There are many variations on this theme but initially try breathing in for four counts, hold the breath for four counts, exhale for four counts then hold exhale for four counts. Repeat for 1-2 minutes. You can lengthen breath to count to 6 counts of 8 counts to increase the difficulty. You may also choose to forcefully exhale while relaxing the inhalation for a minute. See how you feel. Then reverse and forcefully inhale while relaxing the exhale for a minute. See how you feel.

These are just suggestions, play with it, and have fun. Contact Me Today With Any Questions!

In health,
