“By increasing parasympathetic activity and decreasing sympathetic activity, Coherent Breathing balances and stabilizes the stress-response system, helping you to react more appropriately rather than with excess fear, anger, or feelings of helpless immobility. The increased parasympathetic activity calms the mind, slows the heart, lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, and strengthens stress resilience.”
