Breathing is a key function of the human body; it sustains life providing oxygen for normal cell function, cell repair, and regeneration. Breathing has a direct effect on the body's physiology and it can affect all body systems (brain, heart, lungs, nerves, circulation, reproduction). The quality of how we breathe can either decrease or increase our health and performance.
Disturbed breathing can alter the body chemistry, and it can cause unexplained symptoms that cannot be explained by medical tests results. Some of these symptoms include pain syndromes, respiratory problems, chronic fatigue, anxiety, irritability, headaches, sleep problems, and more.
CO2 depletion due to breathing behaviors is the most overlooked area of breathing education despite the rich medical and dental literature from around the world.

Respiras Breathing is an expert consultative agency for preventative health and performance. Our agency is solely dedicated to the correction of breathing patterns and stress loading.
The main focus is to improve breathing, sleep, and pain syndromes by normalizing basic respiratory function in the context of daily activities, including self-care, self-management, work, recreation, sleep, and overall life performance. We reject the notion that we simply need to "cope" with life.
