Breathwork is a method that allows access to an altered state of consciousness and that helps release tensions in the muscle, release blocked energy in the nervous system, reduce stress and get deeper self-exploration.  More Information



Breathwork or Conscious Connected Breathing is a type of breathing technique that consists of accelerating the breathing without pausing between breaths. In addition, it is not forced so that carbon dioxide does not get lost in the blood, something that occurs in hyperventilation. This type of breathing allows access to altered states of consciousness and releases tensions in the body. This approach is also non-directive, meaning that the therapist does not tell the breather what they should be working on. There is also wordless music playing while the person breathes, in order to create and guide the experience. Since this is non-directive and mostly experiential, it allows to move past the thinking mind, into the body and into higher states of consciousness. The sessions last an hour and we will then have 15 minutes at the end for integration and to allow your body to return to its normal state of consciousness.

As we experience stress, it is shown that we hold our breath and breathe in shallow ways. Therefore, controlling the breathing can help the nervous system calm down. This modality helps people who suppress emotions, speaking up, and sharing points of view, as suppressing requires tightening of the body and the breath.


While experience varies from person to person and even from sessions to session, some common experiences may occur. These consists of buzzing in the body, emotional release (grief, joy, sadness, anger, fear, etc), change of bodily temperature, different sensations through the body, trauma release, resurfacing of memories, insight, visions, creative ideas, and returning to birth memories. After emotional release, a sense of peace might be experienced, as the body no longer works to hard to push down the emotions. Sometimes, it might take a few sessions before being able to let go of the mind and drop down to the experience.


While breathwork can be beneficial, it does implicate an increased of breathing rate and an altered state of consciousness. Therefore, extra precaution or contraindication should be considered for people who are pregnant, has a history of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or psychosis, epilepsy, high blood pressure or glaucoma, severe PTSD, aneurism, detached retina, blood thinners, and severe osteoporosis. To know if breathwork is right for you, consult your with your doctor.
