Breathing & Relaxation

One in ten New Zealanders experience some form of breathing disorder or chronic over-breathing. This can produce a range of disturbing symptoms both baffling to you and doctor.  Worry over this may lead to further over-breathing and build up of symptoms. Breathing in this way can become a habit. This in itself is a major stress and a vicious cycle is created.  

Have you ever experienced any of the following:

  • Frequent sighing and yawning

  • Breathing discomfort

  • Disturbed sleep

  • Erratic heartbeats

  • Feeling anxious

  • Pins and needles

  • Upset gut / nausea

  • Chest pains

  • Shattered confidence

  • Tiredness and fatigue

  • Achey muscles and joints

  • Dizzy spells or feeling ‘spaced out’

  • Irritability or jumpiness

  • Feelings of ‘air hunger’

Check with your doctor if you experience these symptoms.

These are the most common symptoms resulting from disordered breathing.
