Respiration is very important in our life. With the deep respiration the oxygen can reach all the parts of the body giving him vigor and obtains psychological and emotional calm. When we rest, we breathe between 12 and 15 times per minute, mobilizing some 6 litres of air. Our respiration increases with exercises to nourish with oxygen all the cells and the formation of necessary energy for the exercise.
Respiration can be:
- complete: at the same time diaphragmatic, intercostal, sub clavicle
To know how we breathe we have to put a hand on the abdomen and the other on the chest. If the respiration is deep, we will feel when we inhale, the abdomen swells, the chest zone enlarges and the clavicle zone ascends slightly. If our respiration is superficial, the chest zone only will swell. Learn to breathe, revitalize your body, active the energy, relax and balance advised therapies in the Institute of the Thalassotherapy El Palasiet.
