Breathing: The Master Key to Self-Healing


Price :   $18
Publication Date :   1999
Test Questions :   15
CE Hours :   2
Learning Level :   Introductory


The breath is intrinsically linked to the nervous system and has a powerful effect on both the mind and body, yet has been largely overlooked as a mechanism of change within medicine and mental health. This course is based on an audio book by Andrew Weil, MD, Breathing: The Master Key to Self-Healing (1999), in which he describes the physiological mechanisms by which the breath affects the mind and body. After an introductory lecture, he teaches several calming, relaxing breathing techniques, as well as an energizing breathing technique. This audio book is a valuable resource for therapists and medical professionals to learn these techniques and to use with clients.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the history of breathwork, including its origins and more recent use
2. Identify physical and mental benefits of breathing techniques
3. Describe the physiological mechanisms by which breathing techniques affect the body and mind
4. Describe the benefits of breathing techniques relative to modern pharmaceutical interventions
5. Describe specific breathing techniques designed to promote health
