I am sending you feedback regarding the 60-day breathing program.
Plenty of issues began to appear after I had surgery five months ago. I managed to mitigate it using manual therapy. About a month ago, I started noticing problems with deep breathing. I felt like I had a lump under my sternum that wouldn’t release, and its tension was pulling all the way to my throat. The tension eased if I shifted slightly into flexion and relaxed the front line. I began looking for a solution to my problem, and I felt that your 60-day program would be useful.
I began feeling increased tension in the area between my chest and neck, usually when performing modules. The feeling was familiar, as if it reminded me of something that happened in my past.
If one cannot take a deep breath due to tension, one cannot develop strong emotions. And vice versa, if we don’t express our anger, we have to increase tension. However, increased tension leads to chronic rigidity. All this is the basis for the appearance of chronic pain.
During the program, I got confirmation of your explanation. In a situation where I subconsciously felt that a pattern of anger was awakening in me, a familiar feeling came to me distinctly and I became aware of what repressed anger means.
With modules, which are a part of the program, I improve my ability to inhale, especially while standing. The feeling of rigidity under the sternum is reduced by half. Not only subjectively, but also objectively, the tension of the fascia under the sternum is smaller. It’s easier for me to stand up straight without the rigidity in my throat.
I realized that I have plenty of energy trapped in the muscle-connective structures of the chest. Energy that I couldn’t, wouldn’t, didn’t know or shouldn’t release.
Getting to know yourself can be unpredictable.
