This training makes it possible to acquire an efficient and correct style of breathing using an ideal respiration curve. The program first analyses the client's breathing pattern. It uses this to calculate an ideal respiration curve, allocating 30% of the time to inhalation, 60% to exhalation and 10% to a pause in breathing. Clients attempt to match their breathing to the curve.
Heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tone increase during inhalation and decrease during exhalation. When the exhalation phase is emphasized, as it is in the ideal curve, there is a reduction in the effect of the sympathetic nervous system and in the general level of activity.
To improve the effectiveness of training you can change the properties of the displayed curve, for example with regard to frequency, steepness of the curve and percentage contributions of inhalation and exhalation. After at the most five training sessions the client is usually able to reproduce the more beneficial breathing pattern, even without feedback.
