What is Transformational Breath®?

Transformational Breath® is a therapeutic breathwork system, awarded Best Complementary Medicine Organisation by the Institute of Complementary & Natural Medicine. Facilitators like me get to know your unique breath pattern, as individual as your fingerprint, before getting to work increasing the depth and flow of your breath. This unlocks a whole host of physical and emotional benefits, and expands your conscious awareness. Once you’ve been taught the technique you can practice at home for free, putting you in the driving seat when it comes to your health and wellbeing. Powerful stuff.

Check out my free one-pager to learn the basics of the technique right now.

How does it work?

The general principle is that tension, trauma — any emotion that has not been able to flow freely — remains in our system as trapped energy. At the most fundamental level feelings are energy. This is one of the first lessons in physics. Everything, from the sofa you’re sitting on to the thoughts in your head, is energy. When we don’t allow ourselves to feel all of our feelings, like sadness or anger, energy gets stuck inside us. Cultural/social expectations are often the reason we hold back feelings but there are also times when we simply can’t allow ourselves to ‘go there’ emotionally, because we have to hold it together to survive. My mind goes to a client who lost her dad, but had to get through organising his funeral and clearing out his house before she could finally start to grieve. Such is life, however these energetic blockages can manifest in all manner of ailments and mental-ills if left unchecked.

The good news is that Transformational Breath® safely and gently locates and accesses areas of stagnant energy, allowing it to surface and be released for good. A range of techniques are brought together to achieve this.

Transformational Breath® techniques

  • Breath Analysis: I observe clients’ regular breath pattern and read it using advanced knowledge of the breath and how it moves through the body. Reading the breath includes spotting areas where the breath either doesn’t flow at all or doesn’t flow optimally, which suggests muscle tension and energetic blockages — and therefore potential ‘integration’ of past traumas/negative beliefs. Potential to support the body’s natural healing processes. It’s worth noting here that we all carry tension, to a greater or lesser degree, even if we have not consciously been through anything we might think of as particularly ‘traumatic’. We can all benefit from breathing better.

And finally, the benefits…

  • Soothes muscle tension: Pain, stress and anger all cause our breath to become shallow and our muscles to contract. Better breathing is the antidote.
