About Coherent Breathing:
Coherent Breathing is a formal breathing method developed by Stephen Elliott for the purpose of health well-being, longevity, and optimal performance. It accomplishes this by promoting optimal respiration, optimal blood flow, and its outcome, autonomic nervous system balance.
Coherent Breathing generates a phenomenon known as the respiratory arterial pressure wave which rises with exhalation and falls with inhalation. This wave is an outcome of the “thoracic pump” which, in combination with autonomic action, functions to draw blood
from the extremities via the right side of the heart during inhalation and impel blood to the extremities via the left side of the heart during exhalation.
Coherent Breathing has been demonstrated to affect many biometrics include including heart rate, blood pressure, brainwaves, muscle tension, skin conductivity, and hand temperature, as well as overall “bioenergetic potential” of the human organism. Often, dramatic changes in biometrics are seen within a single therapeutic session.
Coherent Breathing is presently used by a growing number of individuals and integrative health care professionals in >8 nations.
About Stephen Elliott:
Stephen Elliott is a long term student, practitioner, and teacher of Eastern yogic and martial arts and an avid life sciences researcher. He possesses a unique “systems view” resulting from the synthesis of diverse fields of knowledge including physiology, engineering, esoteric arts, and alternative medicine, as well as a deep understanding of yoga and meditation that can only be forged via direct experience. He is a prolific inventor with ~20 patents pending, many of which are in the area of life sciences. Stephen is the founder and life scientist behind COHERENCE. He and his colleagues continue to actively investigate the relationship of suboptimal breathing to today’s pandemic health challenges.
