When Therapeutic Breathing Isn't Effective

Mary NurrieStearns, MSW, LCSW, RYT

You don't always have to know what's going on with your clients in order to help them...

I had a client that just didn't benefit from therapeutic breathing, so I tried something different.

Let me show you how I helped her in this short video.

Enjoy the video, and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Such a great example! I have so many trauma clients who do not like to do traditional deep breathing, but they respond well to being able to forcefully breath out. Love the idea of running in place!

Loved your intervention using the client's movement for clinical work. As a dance/movement therapist, this is how we work! You get it!!

Mary I loved your example of running in place and mirroring the client. Sounds like she was able to get grounded again. Would like to hear more about your work with clients...
