Why Breathwork is important
The breath is the only automatic and controlled system within our body, meaning we can completely control its process and it will serve us when we are not consciously thinking about it. Therefore, in every moment, we can calm our minds down using the power of the breath, yet humanity doesn’t tap into this powerful tool when we are flooded with our emotionality.
Learning to use breath in the midst of a trigger, we will learn how to act in accordance with our higher selves, rather than out triggered selves.
Everything you need to live the life you want, everything you need to be the person you want to be is already inside of you.
You just need help accessing it. You need help stripping away the layers of suffering, struggle, anxiety, and stress. You need to learn how to connect with your body on a deeper level and create a felt sense of safety, peace, and well-being WITHIN yourself.
Breathwork can help you reconnect into your body so that you can finally access your innate wisdom, safety, and calm.

Breathwork is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. The first time I was introduced to it was at Dr. Michaela’s Unstoppable You Retreat. I will never forget this experience. Near the end of the session I broke out into uncontrollable laughter. I Simultaneously felt this out of body experience of being surrounded by light and a feeling of pure love. It’s hard to describe, but I experienced this “knowing” that this life is supposed to be fun, full of joy, not to be taken so seriously. Following the laughter was a deep emotional release. I’ve had meditations that had been perspective changing, but nothing on this level. I’ve learned that no two sessions are the same and not to have expectations, but the emotional release and healing I have experienced, thus far, has been incredible
I first experienced @pausebreathwork about 1 year ago through my coach @Samantha Skelly. From day one, I was hooked. In a short 20 minute breath session ,I was able to process emotions that I typically would have harboured and would have stayed stuck in for weeks to months.
I have used breathwork to move through anxiety, indecision, emotional difficulties in relationships, work through physical ailments, physical trauma that was stuck in my body and gained insight on how to move forward in many areas of my life.Breathwork has taught me that as human beings, We have all the answers inside, If we take time to listen in.From a place of being in your body through conscious breath, you will hear your intuition and gain insights into yourself and your life.
As a Chiropractor, I know that there are emotions (or energy) that get stuck in our body and can manifest as physical ailments or issues. As a good friend describes it, ‘We have issues in our tissues’. I am dedicated to clearing out the physical and biomechanical issues in the body but now teach my patients breathwork as a tool to help them process and move emotional energy through their body as well.
