Often times when I am doing massage therapy on a client, I am amazed at how little they breathe. I’ll notice their breath is very shallow. For example, today, I was working on a patient at the medical office I’m a part of once a week, and a man came in with lower back pain. It wasn’t caused by an injury but was actually caused by having recently joined a boot camp at the gym and the lack of stretching. As I worked on his glutes & hips with my elbows, I had to tell him to take in deep breaths periodically. We could both feel the muscles relaxing & letting go with each breath he took. He was amazed at how his muscles released and how much better he felt! It’s always amazing to witness someone discovering the power of their breath!
All it takes is 1 deep breath to feel so much better! Try it right now. Take another one. See how good that feels? Connect to your breath and stay connected by coming to class tonight! ♥
