During times of stress, or when heightened concentration is needed, focusing on one’s breathing or doing breathing exercises can indeed change the brain.

Breathing is traditionally thought of as an automatic process driven by the brainstem—the part of the brain controlling such life-sustaining functions as heartbeat and sleeping patterns. But new and unique research, involving recordings made directly from within the brains of humans undergoing neurosurgery, shows that breathing can also change your brain.

Simply put, changes in breathing—for example, breathing at different paces or paying careful attention to the breaths—were shown to engage different parts of the brain.

I began seeing Helen years when I was caring for my ill Mom. My stress levels were high, my energy level was low, and my digestive system was off. I came to Helen looking to balance my emotional and physical well being. Helen is very compassionate and intuitive, and after a few visits I felt better. I continue to see Helen every four to six weeks for reflexology, and reiki as part of my wellness program. I am a caretaker as many woman are, and by taking care of myself, I am able to continue to be strong and healthy for my family.
