At Angelic Holistic Practice we use the Resperate as part of our Relaxation Therapy, Stress Management and Meditation Sessions. The Resperate is one of the pieces of equipment used at the end of our Relaxation Therapy Classes, for students to try out, that may benefit them to use at home. A half hour session is required to use this equipment.
What is RESPeRATE?
Breathing exercises have been known for centuries to have a beneficial impact on our health. Pranayama, Yoga breathing, meditation and other breathing techniques have been used for generations to calm the body and mind. Yet, while these breathing exercises can result in slowed respiration, scientific consensus does not support their use in treating hypertension. Because these exercises require effort and deep concentration, they can increase sympathetic nervous system activity, constrict blood vessels and actually increase blood pressure.
In contrast, RESPeRATE's patented technology does the work for you, enabling effortless therapeutic breathing to relax the muscles that surround your small blood vessels and significantly lower your blood pressure. By tapping the natural tendencies of your body to follow external musical rhythms, RESPeRATE creates a unique, device-guided breathing therapy that is easy to use and clinically proven to lower blood pressure.
Using a breathing sensor, headphones and a computerized unit, RESPeRATE analyzes your breathing and composes personalized guiding tones to change the pattern of your breathing and gradually reduce its rate. After each session, your breathing returns to normal, but the beneficial impact on your blood pressure accumulates. For best results, use RESPeRATE for 15 minutes at least 3-4 times per week.
RESPeRATE is a truly natural approach to lower your blood pressure with no side effects. Like the centuries-old breathing techniques that inspired it, RESPeRATE is safe and pleasant to use.
High blood pressure is generally caused by your blood vessels tightening up and narrowing; this then causes your heart to pump harder. RESPeRATE's unique breathing exercise relaxes constricted blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure.
How to Use the RESPeRATE.
When you use RESPeRATE, you put on headphones and attach a sensor around your chest.
RESPeRATE's breathing sensor automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones.
Simply listen to the melody through the headphones, and your body's natural tendency to follow external rhythms will enable you to easily synchronize your breathing to the tones.
By gradually prolonging the exhalation tone to slow your breathing, RESPeRATE leads you to the therapeutic zone of less than 10 breaths per minute.
Within a few minutes, the muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body relax, blood flows more freely, and your blood pressure is significantly reduced.
RESPeRATE's unique breathing exercise relaxes constricted blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure.
RESPeRATE is the only non-drug solution for lowering blood pressure with such an extensive amount of clinical support.
