Why is breathwork in such high demand?
If you know me or listen to me speak ever, you know I am a Physio turned absolute breath enthusiast (and breath coach). I can't get enough of it, there's nothing else I care to speak about in most situations with my clients and with most physio patients. Why?
Breathwork is THE missing piece to client transformation.
It's simple. If you're a health practitioner you should be familiar with the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which impacts all systems in the body. The best way to influence the state of your ANS is through the breath.
Change your breath --> change your ANS --> change everything.
We are just at the tipping point of understanding how impactful the breath can be for each individual. That's why breath facilitators are in such high demand, and it's NOT a trend.
Below, I'll share with you some of the top reasons you should consider using breathwork with clients.
Top 5 reasons to use breathwork with clients
It's FREE! Ok, ok, it's not completely free. Of course you have to charge your clients for your services. But, you'll be sharing a practice that they can take with them ANYWHERE, use ANYTIME. And once they learn the basics, it is FREE. It's natural, it's innate. The power to change comes from within. That's my favourite part about sharing the breath with people, it empowers them to take control of their health and their outcomes quite easily.
You can get people to change their state quickly. If you teach and explain in the right way (think: applied knowledge!) then clients will understand the impacts of their breath on their health and state within a few minutes of speaking with you. I teach exactly how to begin assessing and treating clients in my functional and therapeutic program. Within a 1-hour session you can give clients the tools to change their state and begin breathing more optimally immediately. They will see the benefits so quickly that they'll want to learn more + more.
Use this modality as a way to create new business online or in-person. Not only can you begin to use this modality from the comfort of your own home, but one of the best things I find is that clients also like to take advantage of these sorts of things from the comfort of their own home. They don't need to travel to you, or pay a fee at a clinic to get the benefits of breathing optimally. You can teach them from anywhere. This means you can teach people worldwide, thus expanding your opportunities and reach. It means you can live anywhere you so choose. Ask me about this -- it's one of the most beautiful things that's extended beyond my business and into my personal life! On the flip side, if you are looking to put yourself out there in person and facilitate some group workshops or sessions, this is a great offering to share. You can create beautiful in-person events and communities. Trust me, people LOVE breathing together.
You can add breathwork and breath assessments into your current offerings, or use it as a parallel offering. You can create a brand new branch of your business by using the breath or just have it complement your current expertise. Want to start teaching 1-1 breathwork sessions? Want to start doing more group workshops? Want to begin assessing and treating the breath during your current 1-1 sessions? I teach you how to incorporate it into your current offerings OR use it as a brand new modality. With the breath, you can tailor this new skill to suit your preferences, strengths and business model. It's forever adaptable and a skill you will begin to use in any client setting.
You can confidently find solutions to a variety of client challenges. I have worked with stressed out CEOs, high performing athletes, postpartum mothers, chronically ill adults, CPAP users, anxious children and many, MANY different types of people looking to take their health into their own hands. You don't need to have a thousand credentials to help all of those people, you just need to know how to use the breath to their specific advantage.
So, all of the above sounds good to you as you sit here reading, I’m sure you’re wondering, what’s next? How do I actually learn all of this, and how do I APPLY it to your real life clients?
I’ve created a free, 5 day video course that will explain all of that to you, giving you real life applications of breathwork (from stressed out CEOs, to high performing athletes, to anxious new moms) that actually work for individuals. This is not about “methods”, it’s about utilising applied knowledge and tools to assess and treat your clients and give them the power to manage their own health and wellbeing.
