Energy Breathing Technique
What is this method used for?
This is one of the techniques used in The Awakening Ceremony.
ENERGY BOOST: It will raise your metabolism slightly and will give a shot of adrenaline for more energy.
MOOD LIFT: Dopamine and serotonin will also be produced that can elevate your mood.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: The adrenaline boost will also release natural steroids that have and anti-inflammatory effect on the body.
RAISE BODY TEMPERATURE: When combined with breath holding you can actually induce a fever like response in the body that can suppress infections. It can also help stay warm in cold climates or ice baths.
CAUTION: It may also raise your blood pressure slightly, but then cause a drop in heart rate and blood pressure. Use with caution and very gradually if you suffer from very high blood pressure.
Fast Track Training
How to do the method:
- Sit comfortably in an upright position with your back straight. Contract tightly all the muscles you would use when holding in your urine. This means contraction the sphincter muscles, or the perineum as tight as possible.
- Contract as long as you feel comfortable and watch your heart rate go up on your monitor by around 20-30 BPM. When you relax, you will then observe a drop in heart rate even below your normal resting heart rate for a few minutes as your nervous system has a reset.
- If you hold your breath in while you contract your muscles it will enhance the effect and you will also feel a rise in body temperature.
Note: To increase the energetic charge do 10-15 cycles of rhythmic breathing at a 2:2 or 4:4 rhythm at 60-120 bpm and then do the technique.
