Deep breathing; also called diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing is a method of breathing where the diaphragm is utilized. The diaphragm relaxes during inhalation and the abdomen is allowed to expand to accommodate the increased air that has been taken into the expanded lungs.

During deep breathing the air taken in is made to fill the entire lung space thereby allowing maximum exposure to and utilization of the required oxygen in the air.

The air taken in is made to stay in the lungs as much as possible (most people count up to 10) before exhaling. The increased availability of the required Oxygen contributes to an optimal acid-base balance in the body which is essential for a healthy Immune System.

The process of concentrating on the breath tames the ‘monkey’ mind of man; while the increased exchange of the gases between the body and external environment has been associated with many benefits.
