Breathwork is proven method for relieving stress and inducing a sense of relaxation. Research confirms that breathing has a strong influence on heart rate variability. It has also been described as an interface for voluntary control of the autonomic nervous system. Because of this, breath regulation can be a useful tool for slowing one's heart rate and inducing a state of relaxation or deeper awareness.
Breath regulation can be achieved through conscious control or with the help of an external stimulus. Music is often used as an external stimulus in conjunction with breathwork, as music has also been scientifically proven as a useful tool for relieving stress and calming the heart rate. When coupled together, music and breath regulation can become a powerful tool for healing.
Music creators are intentionally working to craft the sounds that can assist listeners in utilizing their breath to cultivate personal healing. From magical sonic journeys to instructional rhythmic breathing tracks, creators from all over the world are using their creativity to foster health and well-being.
