Is Breathwork for Emotional or Physical Healing?

Recently I went on our Instagram stories to ask our followers what questions they have about breathwork. Here’s one of my favorite questions someone asked:

“What does breathwork tend to address? Is it focused on emotional or physical ailments?”

The simple answer? It addresses both.

The longer answer? Well, if you’ve been to the clinic recently, your practitioner may have recommended that you try out a breathwork private session or group practice. For those of you coming in for acupuncture to support your hormones, regulate your digestion, deal with chronic pain, or a variety of other physical ailments we treat here at the clinic you might be confused as to why we’d recommend a practice that focuses less on the physical body and more on the emotional body.

Here’s the truth as I see it: Our physical and emotional bodies are inextricably tied.

Yes, breathwork is an amazing and empowering practice to reconnect with your emotions. And yes, breathwork can also help heal physical symptoms.

Reiki: what it is, what it does, and why energy medicine is awesome

Energy medicine exists in traditions all over the world, and arguably, is one of the oldest forms of healing. While a single definition of energy medicine is hard to pin down, I think of energy medicine as a way to channel the power of the energy fields from the Earth, from the Universe, and from one’s own internal life force to balance and heal all aspects of mind, body, and spirit. This energy is limitless - and we each have the opportunity to access it, cultivate it, utilize it. At the most basic level, everything we do here at the clinic is a form of energy medicine! But today, I'm talking about Reiki, and breaking down a question we hear a lot... drum roll...

Answering Your Breathwork FAQs

Lately we've been talking about Breathwork a lot over on the Constellation Instagram page or in our bi-weekly newsletter - but I realized that something got missed. The basics.

Basics like, “What is Breathwork?” totally got overshadowed! 

See, sometimes it’s hard to see the forest from the trees. And after several immersive weekends in this medicine over the last year, I've been about as far into that forest as can be.

So today I wanted to pull back a bit and answer a few questions I’ve gotten from y’all about what Breathwork is and how it can help you.
