3. What to do if I experience uncomfortable sensations such as lobster hands, dizziness, cramping, etc.) during the sessions?

“Keep breathing,” I like to say. Those are normal sensations. You have the option of pushing forward with determination and a sense of curiosity. You can also stop active breathing through your mouth and resume nose breathing. It’s very easy to get off the ride, but I highly advise you to try to hang on as long as you can before giving up. It becomes simpler once you’ve crossed the bridge of discomfort! In the end, the payoff is immense.

4. How should I prepare for my first Breathwork Group/Private sessions?

Arrive 10 minutes early to get yourself situated and settled in for the best experience possible. Bring water and dress comfortably, especially around your stomach. If you are likely to become cold, keep extra blankets on hand. I recommend wearing an eye mask. Bring an open mind and no expectations based on what you’ve heard about breathwork sessions.

5. Why is it recommended not to eat two hours before a session?

It is best to do Breathwork on an empty stomach. If you eat before practicing breathwork, the blood will be diverted to the stomach for digestion, preventing you from gaining the full benefits of your practice. Also, limit fluid intake to avoid the need to use the restroom during the session.

6. What should I do when the Breathwork session is over?

Taking time to really ground yourself by talking walking in nature barefoot or sitting in a silent place for sometimes to really ground yourself once you left the hall or treatment room.  you might have quite an intense session. Drink plenty of water and perhaps spend some time journaling. The inner healing system is activated by breathwork so it’s normal if your emotions are still raw or if you have ongoing physical sensations in the hours or days following the session. Observe them with compassion and without judgment. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
