If you’re in New Plymouth, Taranaki, and looking to enhance your well-being through Pilates, Physiotherapy@Carefirst is your local and friendly professional destination. Discover the advantages of diaphragmatic breathing with our experienced team of experts.

Diaphragmatic breathing, often known as “belly breathing,” is a fundamental technique that can lead you to a state of relaxation and rejuvenation. It involves harnessing the power of your diaphragm, a crucial muscle located beneath your lungs at the base of your rib cage.

As you inhale, your diaphragm gracefully descends toward your hips, creating ample space for your lungs to expand. This action causes your stomach to gently rise, aptly earning it the name ‘belly breathing.’ When you exhale, your stomach naturally returns to its resting position as the diaphragm ascends to its usual spot directly below the lungs.

At Physiotherapy@Carefirst, we emphasize the importance of in-person instruction and practice of diaphragmatic breathing. Our professional team will guide you through this technique in a comfortable and supportive environment.

You can experience the benefits of diaphragmatic breathing as a vital component of our Pilates classes, enhancing body awareness, promoting relaxation, and aiding in meditation. If you’re eager to explore these advantages and embark on your Pilates journey, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Physiotherapy@Carefirst. We look forward to welcoming you to our facility in New Plymouth, where our friendly and experienced professionals are ready to support your well-being.
