What Is Breathworks Therapy?

Breathworks therapy at SoCal Detox involves learning purposeful breathing exercises that center around deliberate, deep inhalations and exhalations. The objective of this practice is to enhance oxygen flow, trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, and induce a state of relaxation. Different breathwork techniques may yield different effects, but typical outcomes include a heightened sense of awareness, the release of tension or emotional blockages, a newfound sense of clarity, and a profound state of relaxation. 

How Is Breathworks Used in Addiction Treatment?

Breathwork is a therapeutic approach that uses intentional breath practices to help lessen mental, physical, and spiritual stressors and challenges associated with addiction. It involves intentionally modifying your breathing pattern. The practice of breathworks has numerous advantages when it’s incorporated into addiction treatment, as it facilitates a connection with your thoughts and emotions, offering valuable insights into your life and choices. As a result, it empowers you to cope more effectively with recovery challenges.

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Breathworks Therapy?

Anyone who has a problem with drugs or alcohol is a good candidate for breathworks therapy. Additionally, breathworks helps clients who have issues like anxiety, anger, chronic pain, depression, emotional issues related to physical illnesses, grief and loss, and trauma. Many of these are the same types of issues that individuals with addiction to drugs or alcohol also have. In addition to therapeutic applications, breathwork therapy is sometimes used to inspire creativity and improve focus.
