Control Your Breathing

Relaxed breathing, also called diaphragmatic breathing, can help you relieve stress.

Have you ever noticed how you breathe when you're stressed? Stress typically causes rapid, shallow breathing. This kind of breathing sustains other aspects of the stress response, such as rapid heart rate and perspiration. If you can get control of your breathing, the spiraling effects of acute stress will automatically become less intense. Relaxed breathing, also called diaphragmatic breathing, can help you relieve stress.

Practice this basic technique twice daily, and whenever you feel tense. Follow these steps:

  • Inhale. With your mouth closed and your shoulders relaxed, inhale as slowly and deeply as you can to the count of six. As you do that, push your stomach out. Allow the air to fill your diaphragm.
  • Hold. Keep the air in your lungs as you slowly count to four.
  • Exhale. Release the air through your mouth as you slowly count to six.
  • Repeat. Complete the inhale-hold-exhale cycle three to five times.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I hurt my back in the middle of January, so I decided to go to Dr. Lambe hoping he could do his miracle work on me. He took x-rays and started adjusting my back. After 10 visits, my back was as good as before I got hurt. Thank you Dr. Lambe for your help and God bless you."

  • "From sports injuries, to car wrecks, to carelessness on my part, my lower back and neck areas have taken a beating. At times the pain was so severe I couldn't walk or barely drive a vehicle. Without medication, and through the use of spinal adjustments and deep tissue massage, the only relief and removal of the pain has come at the hands of Dr. Lambe and his caring staff.I urge anyone who is suffering from neck or back pain to pay Dr. Lambe a visit and give chiropractic care a chance. It really works!"
