Breathing involves the whole body and I hope to help you become more aware of the movement involved. Correct breathing involves breathing into the chest and into the abdomen. However I find many of my patients are what we call “chest breathers”. When they inhale the chest rises, as well as the shoulders sometimes and the abdomen isn’t a part of the process. It is often the breathing pattern we might revert to when we are very stressed, anxious or fearful.
