Everyone has heard “take a deep breath and relax,” but there’s so much more to it than that.
As an unconscious behavior, changing breathing patterns is hard. As clinicians, we often need to teach our patients to bring attention and awareness to something they almost never think about. But it’s rare to find personalized rehabilitative breathing programs that effectively target movement and performance improvement.
So, we decided to change all that – and all it takes is 8 to 10 minutes of deliberate breathing practice per day to revolutionize your outcomes.
In this neuro-centric course, you’ll learn why breathing is Dr. Eric Cobb’s go-to recommendation after 20+ years of clinical practice. It is the single largest recommendation that can have a profound impact on the most people.
Pain relief, improved performance, lower stress, better sleep, and so much more… it’s all right here!
In this advanced skills training, you’ll learn how to get quick wins and powerful, long-lasting results for your patients with highly effective brain-based breathing strategies.
Learn how to:
- Improve cognitive and physical performance
- Reduce or eliminate pain
- Decrease the negative effects of stress
- Improve sleep, digestion, and blood pressure
- And so much more!
Blending emerging science with established protocols, we break down complex ideas into easy-to-understand concepts. We’ll show you how to immediately apply these strategies in your work.
Practice while you learn and reap all the benefits!
Through the lens of neurology, this course provides a step by step, practical approach to breathwork for all the patients you treat. Breathwork is about to become your absolute favorite tool in your arsenal.
Start thinking about your breath in a whole new way.
You’ll love these methods — practical and easy to learn — allowing you to create specific plans of action for your patients within minutes of completing the course.
