Decompression is the act or process of relieving pressure from a compression. In diving, diver’s decompress upon returning from very deep waters. Astronauts, spend time decompressing upon return from space in order to adjust to our normal atmospheric pressure. Surgeons can do procedures to relieve spinal compressions.
The fact is, when there is pressure on the spine…it needs to be relieved. I can not speak about diving or space, but I can speak about everyday life and the pressure we put on our spines…and how we can do our own decompression through breathing.
We all breathe everyday in order to live. That’s a good thing! The bad part about this is…most all of us breath very shallow. We don’t really get our diaphragm, pelvic floor or the muscles around our rib cage involved. No one really thinks about that. Why would we? After all breathing is just something that happens naturally…right?
The act of DECOMPRESSING is: ability to expand, recover, restore.
In breathing…If we all would consciously take just a few minutes a day and practice breathing better…we could expand, recover, and restore a lot of function in our bodies.
DECOMPRESSION BREATHING: Will help us expand musculature around the spine, ribs, abdomen, pelvic floor…lifting, expanding, strengthen…this is the ultimate core work.
DECOMPRESSION BREATHING: Will help athletes recover much faster. For the everyday person who avoids the stairs because it takes your breath away…learn how to practice decompression breathing… Joggers, runners, weekend warriors…you will get better at everything by learning how to breathe better.
DECOMPRESSION BREATHING: Will help us recover quicker from injury, muscle aches and pains. There are even articles out now how better breathing can help with neuro muscular disorders like MS, Parkinson’s and others. Breathing bigger, deeper, wider pulls in more oxygen! Feeding the lungs, the brain, and soft tissue is a good thing! Oxygen heals, it helps us relax…blood pressure gets better, the heart won’t over work. Oxygen helps everything!
If you are overweight, over stressed, have poor posture, poor balance, poor movement….even a poor attitude in general, but especially about your body…
DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
Learn how to do DECOMPRESSION BREATHING!
If you want to really make a change…start with your breathing! It’s something all of us do…everyday…all day long! Why not make our breathing more useful…
