Exercise breathing depending on the purpose of the exercise to enhance health or restore, improve respiratory diseases. Therapeutic breathing exercises are often indicated in lung disease with the restrictive disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and mixed form, the purpose of restoring and improving lung function.
Regarding chronic respiratory diseases (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – COPD, bronchiectasis, bronchial asthma, emphysema …), breathing therapy plays a very important role. Due to the impact on the physiological and mechanical factors of the respiratory function, therapeutic breathing exercises help the patient expel secretions so that the ventilation is easy, control the breathing and create relaxation during dyspnea, increase air exchange by practicing effective breathing and maximizing chest relaxation.
4-time breathing with buttocks and lifting of legs: 4-time breathing with buttocks and leg raises is to practice the synthesis of nerves, gas, and blood, the focus is on nerve training, active inhibition and excitement to The purpose of breathing well, at the same time also make the blood circulation. Practice: Lie on your back with pillows on your buttocks, in a quiet place.
Time 1: Inhale, even, deep, maximum, chest enlarged, belly swollen and stiff. Time ¼ breath “breath in, belly open” 4 seconds or 6 seconds, “inhale, chest enlarges, belly stretch”.
Time 2: Hold air, diaphragm and chest muscles are all constricted, larynx open, legs raised. Time 1/4 breath, then let your foot down “hold breath more” 4 seconds or 6 seconds, “keep trying to breathe more”.
Time 3: let out freely, don’t hold back, don’t push; time ¼ “Uncontrolled breathing” breath 4 seconds or 6 seconds; “Breathe out, don’t hold back, don’t push”.
Time 4: Complete relaxation, feeling heavy and warm. Implicative autism: my limbs are heavy and warm, my whole body is heavy and warm. Time 1/4 of “heavy warm rest” 4 seconds or 6 seconds; “Off time; heavy, warm hands and feet ”.
Time 1: Inhale, even, deep, maximally to be active in the breathing flow evenly and ensure maximum breath in depth to the end of the alveoli in the basal lung areas maximally enlarged, maximal abdominal bulge parallel be stiff, meaning that the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles react back to the diaphragm to keep the viscera from falling. The positive pressure in the abdomen and the negative in the pleural space, the blood flows easily to the heart.
Time 2: Keeping breath is the most difficult and most complicated time because it increases breath performance, completes the exchange of O2 and CO2, enhances the active power of the body. The larynx must be open: To do that, after period 1, we have maximum breathing, the breathing muscles have contracted, then continue to contract more. The larynx was already open and kept open, the left neck was pulled down, and the necks were still hollow as before. The face does not change color, is not red, the throat does not bulge, the pressure does not increase in the lungs, no dizziness, no headache, no chest tightness, which is different from the case of confined air and gas.
At this time, there are raised legs about 20cm (as high as feet) and oscillating the feet to strengthen the contraction of the abdominal muscles, the hip muscles, and the pelvic muscles, making the abdomen stiffer, the diaphragm will contract more, inhale more. a little bit more to tighten my stomach. At the end of the 1/4 breath time, put your feet down to start period 3.
During this time it is also difficult to practice differentiation inhibition or differential relaxation: During periods 1 and 2 the breathing muscles contract to their fullest extent, often a diffuse euphoria occurs to other muscles such as muscles of arms, legs, lower jaw muscles, mouth muscles. It is necessary to focus on controlling the breathing muscles (maximum inhalation), not to spread to other muscles. The muscles that need to breathe will get excited, those muscles that don’t need to breathe will be suppressed, so there’s no waste of energy.
Time 3: Breath out, don’t hold back, don’t push: all the muscles are completely surrendered. Exhale is the weight and stretch of the chest and abdomen that deflates, so exhale only as close as possible (do not squeeze the abdomen and squeeze the chest to exhale more).
Time 4: Rest, relax completely so that the body feels heavy and warm. The autism one further implied, “My limbs are heavy and warm, my whole body is heavy and warm.
