Keep your chest & shoulders still while breathing slowly into your lower abdomen on the inhale and contracting on the exhale.
Building up C02 levels in the blood through deliberate breath holds facilitates oxygen release to accerlerate cell recovery. Elevated C02 levels also enhance vagal nerve cardioinhibitory response, decreasing blood pressure and withdrawing overactive tones from your sympathetic nervous system.
This in turn paves way for the parasympathetic nervous system to establish dominance, relaxing the mind and relieving pain.
