Awareness and proper repetition
We know we
can lose muscle mass but few
realize the average person reaches peak respiratory function in their mid 20's. Then they begin to lose
breathing capacity: between 10-27% for every decade
Unless we do something to maintain or
improve our breathing, it will decline, and with
it, our general health, life expectancy and personal power.

- Studies have shown that there is a high

worsening bronciectasis and a 25 year history compounded by
bad breathing most of his life came to my office bent over
and out of breath after walking the 50 feet to my door. He
left 11 days later 2 pounds heavier and walked the streets
of NYC for 90 minutes. I approached it as a dietary,
nutritional supplements, sleep, postural and immune system
issue as well as restoring his breathing mechanics including
spinal flexibility and training him in what to do at home.
|From Justin S: I am
inspired by new ideas and new concepts - I believe that breathing right
is one of the most important things in staying healthy - your web site is
filled with important and logical information...... it makes perfect
sense on what your saying about breathing properly-a lot of people
(including myself) are starting to look for answers in a non traditional
way. I always believe that the best way is the simplest, straightforward
approach, the way that makes the most sense - just breathing right.

introduced to the strapping exercise which really allows an opening and expanding
of lung capacity. - Phillip Madeley

Removing the blocks to self
realization and peak performance: breathing as a metaphor
"I spent four days in private sessions with Michael White. My breathing
was fast (23 to 28 breaths per minute) and I was having a very hard time
catching my breath without using muscles in my core and shoulders to
consciously draw in the inhale. My girlfriend tended to feel anxious
around me and wanted to break up. Decades of breathwork and other
somatic processes helped improve my confidence and joy in my life, but
the mechanics of my breathing had not improved. I went to North Carolina
with the following goals:
1. Improve breathing mechanism to catch my breath
and breath naturally and automatically.
2. Relieve "body armoring" from emotional traumas.
3. Have a deeper inner peacefulness.
4. Improve my relationship with my girlfriend.
5. Hike and run without inflammation in the lungs (chest) area.
6. Learn to sing in a way that sounds good and is enjoyable.
Mike made me feel very welcome and comfortable. We got right into some
baseline testing followed by a
wide variety of exercises and bodywork techniques. After four days, my
normal breath rate was down to 10 to 14 breaths per minute (from 23-28).
could take a full, satisfying breath most of the time. My inhale started
to occur automatically, without
using my core and shoulder muscles.
More important to me, is that my girlfriend is excited about the new me!
I backed off on my running a bit with the intention of adding it back
gradually being careful to avoid lung inflammation.
I bought a karaoke machine and have
been using it and enjoying it. I had considered
myself "tone deaf" and only sang (traumatized
myself) once in public as a child 40
I have to admit that it took me several days after returning home to
gradually add some of the Optimal Breathing exercises back into my
routine. I realize that it will be a process to fully transform my life
and breathing and heal my lungs. But thanks to Mike White, all of my six
goals have started to come to
