If you are someone that suffers from anxiety, I'm sure you have felt that tightness in your chest, the constant feeling of pressure, panic, or that overall triggered state of being.


Breath work is a free, accessible, highly effective technique that can help you reduce symptoms on the spot! Keep reading to learn…

• Why breath-work is important

• What are the key benefits of breath-work

• How to use it to manage anxiety



What is breath-work?

Breath work is simply just intentional breathing. You can use it any time, any place anywhere. How does it work? There are two parts of your nervous system, your sympathetic, which is your fight or flight response. And your parasympathetic nervous system, which is your “rest and digest”.

Most of us that live in a chronic state of stress with high intensity jobs, which signals our sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) to be constantly switched ON. Ideally, that part of your nervous system is really only supposed to be activated, maybe 1-2% of your life. Using breath-work allows you to intentionally trigger your parasympathetic nervous system to turn on and allow your body to ‘rest and digest’. Your brain cannot tell the difference between real danger or perceived danger. Your brain actually thinks that, the thought of messing up in a presentation or losing your job is just as dangerous as getting hit by a car. It's our job to then cue our brains to say, “No, no, no, I'm not dying today”.


What are the key benefits of breath-work?

It helps reduce stress and anxiety! Especially now with COVID-19, it helps boost our immune system and improves our energy level. Every cell in your body needs oxygen to survive, and it needs optimal oxygen levels to maintain healthy function. If you want to improve your health, improve your stress level, you really need to maximize your oxygen levels. This is the reason why every Apple watch now cues you to stand up and BREATH.


What most people don't know is using your breath also helps you clear emotional trauma and move energy through your body. So if you have any stored emotional issues, breath-work allows you to move that out and through your body, it also can increase your happiness level, your joy level and keep you grounded in the present moment.


So when is it appropriate to use breath-work? The more, the better! It will increase your energy level, increase your focus, and you can use it daily at your desk. You can use it when you're meditating and anytime that you feel that panic coming on or anxiety level increasing.


How to practice..

The main thing to focus on when you're practicing is to exhale for double the amount of time that you inhale. So normally I'd like to start people off inhaling for a four count, holding for a four count and then exhaling for an eight count. But if that seems too strenuous, then you can always inhale for two count hold for a two count and exhale for a four count. (Please watch my YouTube video HERE to see the demonstration)

Weight, Relationships

Life changing is an understatement.
RTT was like clicking a reset button on my life. I was able to release negative energy that held me back, so I could move forward in my life. It has allowed me to see things more clearly, to forgive, love, and appreciate, the people in my life. I am able to have love, joy and abundance in my life. I have referred friends...and it has changed their life as well. Amy is amazing to work with.
She is honest and caring.

Self-Sabotage

I've just finished three terrific weeks of transformation! During the session, some things became so obvious that I never had realized before -- things that were really hindering me from accomplishing a lot of personal and professional goals. The very first day after my session with Amy was truly a turning point for me. I've been getting up with my alarm clock at 5:15 every morning and hitting the day running. This is amazing because I have never been a "morning person." I would hit the snooze about five times every morning and waste a lot of time being non-productive all day. I feel like I have put that self-sabotaging behavior behind me. My morning routine is so different now and sets such a positive tone for the rest of my day. I'm so glad that I gave this a try and have made the investment in me. I really wasn't sure whether RTT would make a difference but it is the single most effective thing I've done for myself in years.
Thanks, Amy!

Anxiety, Food addiction

I immediately felt like my brain was working differently and still is! I feel lighter, happier, FREE. I am already being more positive and seeing beauty and magic in my life. Before, I felt stressed all the time and that there was a dark cloud over me that I couldn't escape. I haven't touched any diet pop or sweets and its been EASY! Any time I have tried to quit before it has been such a struggle. I am naturally grabbing healthier food options to take to work. RTT is magical and I told my husband I am so excited to resolve even more issues with this therapy. Thank you so much for your help. You are truly gifted!
