What is asthma?

Asthma is a lung disease which causes obstruction of the airways that can affect people of all ages. It is an over-reaction of the body's own immune system, usually caused be an exposure to an allergen. In an asthma attack, muscles spasm around the bronchi (small airways in the lungs), constricting the outward passage of air.

What are the symptoms of asthma

  • Starving of air
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing

What else can contribute to asthma?

  • Suppressing colds and flus with medications

  • General suppression of emotions

How can kinesiology help?

As kinesiologists we associate the Deltoid muscle with the lungs. Often the lung meridian has too much energy in cases of asthmatics. Balancing off these muscles with emotional support, identifying irritants such as dust, old carpets, cat hair, washing powders and ensuring the digestive system is working well will help the lungs to function better. We offer specific breathing techniques that will alter and train your breathing patters and strengthen your diaphragm.
