Did you know that you can produce the body's natural relaxation response simply by practicing rhythmic deep breathing?

Benefits of deep breathing

Deep rhythmic breathing has tremendous benefits to your overall health.  It can be extremely effective in handling stress-related disorders, depression, and anxiety. Other benefits of deep breathing include: calming the nervous system, improving the lymphatic system, strengthening the lungs, and providing more oxygen to the brain.  By practicing rhythmic deep breathing you can produce the body’s natural relaxation response. What is the relaxation response?  It is a state of deep calmness that is the opposite of the stress response.

Under stress many people can experience erratic shallow breathing and Dr. Weil, M.D. has stated, “Improper breathing is a common cause of ill health.”  The Mayo Clinic reports that incorporating relaxation techniques into your daily practice can lead to peace of mind, stress control, and overall better health.  Many people experience a common problem of feeling distracted when they try to concentrate on their breathing. The mind can wander and the initial deep breathing rhythms seem to easily fade over a short time.

Relaxation tool

The Ohm is a hand held relaxation tool.  It helps you practice rhythmic breathing to leave the body relaxed, calm, and focused.  All you need to do is breathe with the breath pattern of relaxation that is set on the OHM. The smooth egg shape toll fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and the rhythmic patterns of vibration inspire a sense of deep relaxation. It is black matte finish, and feels more like a river stone.  It comes pre-set with a breath pattern for relaxation which eliminates any confusion on how to program it. This simple, yet powerful relaxation technique may help reduce daily stress, boost your energy, and improve your mood.
