Benifits of Oxygen

Oxygen Therapy is offered by some Holistic Nurse Practitioners and Physicians in the area. Even Oxygen bars are available to up your O2 levels. Here are a few facts and benefits: Deep breathing allows the body to take in more oxygen and release more carbon dioxide. This leads to many health benefits: a lowering of blood pressure, slowing of heart rate, and relaxation of the muscles. It calms the mind, helping to reduce insomnia. An increase of energy and reduction of fatigue with reduced anxiety and stress are desired effects as well.

The Trager Approach improves circulation by gently rocking the body approximately 5000 times in a session. Your cells are simply loosened, so that circulation improves. If your circulation has improved, healing at the cellular level increases. Pain is also lessened, because O2 has healing capacities at the cellular level.

Could pain be a result of a lack of oxygen to the tissue! It certainly plays a part!

Breathing to a waltz timing  can be mesmerizing, and will relax you instantly.  Try it: One breath in, 2 breaths out. Simply count: Inhale 1, Exhale 1-2. Inhale 1, Exhale 1-2, Inhale 1, Exhale 1-2.................................let me know the effect!

Increasing your activity levels does the same thing. Walking daily, swimming, running...whatever you do, you are increasing your breath and oxygen. Get moving, and enjoy it!  J
