Breathwork helps to regulate the nervous system, discharge trauma, reconnect us with our bodies, and provide deep inner connection and discovery. Untethered Therapy’s Melissa Babich, Registered Nurse and Somatic Breathwork Facilitator, provides holotropic breathwork sessions in our Bellevue office.
Holotropic breathwork is a therapeutic breathing practice for emotional healing and personal growth. Holotropic breathwork involves breathing at a fast rate, redirecting oxygen from the prefrontal cortex (or the “logical brain”) to the limbic brain (or “emotional brain”).
Through this technique, clients can release inhibition and judgment in order to access deep emotions and discharge trauma. With an experienced breathwork facilitator using somatic tracking techniques to ensure safety and comfort, clients control the pace of their sessions as they gently and slowly reconnect deep into their bodies and resolve disconnection.
