How can it help?
ANS is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions, for example, the heart rate and digestion. Dysregulation can be caused by Intrusive trauma such as in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or by loss leading to pathological grief reactions. Music Breathing may be also beneficial when experiencing chronic stress, for example, caused by physical diseases.
What happens in a session?
A session lasts approximately an hour. In the session, the client will focus on their own breathing to regulate the level of arousal, with the mental image of a small breathing volume, the Breathing Centre, first in silence, then with a suitable music. After music listening, the client draws a mandala representing the body images of Breathing Space and centre. Music for Music breathing is carefully selected to stimulate different activation states in the client, and to develop, change and transform experiences.
