The Optimal Breathing® System
presumes that you want to take action to improve your breathing or
someone's breathing you care about. It is comprised of:
- Secrets of Optimal Breathing Manual – A
synthesis of 30 years of research related to the authors’ personal quest
to regain healthy breathing. It addresses the vast range of supplemental
breathing development techniques learned from my 30 years of experience and
includes insights from more than 40,000 online test results from my
website: This enhances self teaching and enables me and the
Optimal Breathing School staff and graduates to help others with
singing, athletics, meditating, laughing, bliss, crying, speaking out,
performing delicate tasks, and recovering from stress of habitual
activities that cause shallow or distorted breathing.
Fundamentals of Optimal Breathing Development - Benefits
include: A great deal of chest expansion and increased volume and ease
of breathing. Exercises and strapping techniques demonstrated on the
DVD/video quickly and gently release tensions in the muscles of the rib
cage to improve breathing ease, chest and lung shape and volume. These
techniques help you use more of your vital capacity; ease heart function
by freeing up the space the heart needs to expand in, and release
unnecessary tension that keeps your breathing in an inefficient pattern.
The exercises help you restore natural breathing rhythm while enhancing
breathing sequencing and balance; reduce residual lung volume; reduction
or elimination of excessively fast (rapid and/or hyperventilation)
breathing; postural and breathing musculo-skeletal balancing;
respiratory chemistry improvement; improves being in "present time", and
ways of objectively marking progress. You will notice improvement
immediately! This helps many troublesome or difficult/chronic health
problems and often reduces or eliminates low back pain. Our techniques
are compatible with all forms of exercise, performance, movement and
