Embodied Breathing Habits Article by Peter Litchfield, Ph.D. and Sandra Reamer  published in the Journal of Holistic Healthcare and Integrative Medicine.

Peter Litchfield says, “People everywhere use breathing techniques for meeting personal and professional objectives but are rarely informed as to the fundamentals of respiratory physiology and breathing psychology.  The consequence is misguided breathing practices, misinformed practitioners, and a prevailing popular pseudoscience. These articles introduce breathing science to readers from a psychophysiological perspective. Simply manipulating breathing physiology for well-intended purposes, without regard to its psychological nature, does not do justice to the richness and complexity of breathing.” (Litchfield & Reamer, 2022)
