Respiras™ provides expert consultative services for patients suffering from breathing problems, low oxygen, altitude sickness, sleep disorders, and pain syndromes. Breathing is the only human system that has direct access to all other systems in the body from second-to-second via the pH. When breathing is hacked and hijacked by chronic stress, emotion, trauma, illness, or repetitive patterns, it will interfere with the normal functioning of the body. This can result in a plethora of medically unexplained symptoms, and aggravate existing pulmonary, neurological, and cardiological conditions. Respiras™ takes the application of respiratory science, cutting-edge technology, and detailed customized patient care to a whole new level...

When you have been thoroughly evaluated by your physician and all medical tests results are exhausted, why the patient continues to experience unexplainable symptoms and performance deficits? The disrupted breathing pattern and the loss of CO2 are usually not in the evaluation checklist. Research shows that the loss of CO2 due to breathing dysfunction (chronic-silent hyperventilation syndrome), usually unrecognized, causes disruption in the physiology to cause system malfunction, and ultimately may have a pathogenic role in the development of systemic diseases (Laffey & Kavanagh, 2002). Low CO2, due to disordered breathing habits can cause heart attacks, blood clot formation, strokes, seizures, mental decline, and sleep disorders (Laffey & Kavanagh, 2002).
CO2 depletion is a physiological stressor (Xie, et al., 2004):
Decreases oxygen delivery
Reduces blood circulation
Reduces lung compliance
Increases airway resistance
Affects electrolyte function
Stresses the heart
Weakens the immune system
Increases systemic inflammation
Disrupts pH balance
Pulmonary-based occupational therapy offers a unique psycho-physiological approach to addressing habits of breathing and helping patients improve the quality of ventilation and efficient adaptive responses to stress. Fundamentally, we help improve the efficiency of oxygen, reduce physiologic stress, and allow the body to find its own healing potential.

Respiras biofeedback training is a stand-alone unique therapeutic technique in which patients are trained to consciously alter their quality of ventilation and autonomic response, in an effort to establish new patterns that support daily occupational performance. End-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring combined with heart rate variability facilitates precise calibration of quality of ventilation and heart rhythms to optimize the efficiency of oxygen in the body.
Our client benefits from a data-based training system for home use to reinforce individualized skilled interventions. This ensures access to consistent feedback on breathing behaviors and stress patterns in various environments and scenarios. Our system allows superior awareness and predictable performance over your physiology, giving you access to tangible computerized metrics you get to monitor and control. Ongoing support, remote monitoring, and personalized attention ensure quality of care, results, and client satisfaction. We offer a completely natural, non-toxic, non-invasive way of improving the way you breathe and feel.
"Carbon dioxide depletion due to disordered respiration is one the most overlooked problems in medicine despite the evidence in our literature. Respiras is pulmonary occupational therapy at its finest. I deeply appreciate Respiras' effort in health promotion, bringing a sophisticated data-based service to patients who want more and expect more.
"Respiras helps to re-establish normal physiology in a way that cannot be done with medications, psychotherapy, or even nutritional supplements. It is a critical and almost completely untapped source of treatment that merits further recognition and application to the medical issues that face us in the twenty-first century."
“When medical conditions have been adequately treated or ruled out, and inexplicable symptoms persist, a pattern of disordered habitual breathing should be questioned. Respiras Breathing's conservative approach that is science-based and patient-centered deserves praise and recognition in our ever-evolving medical community.”
