School of MBM Chair Donald Moss Conducts Workshop on Breath Training at Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis Meeting in Berkeley10/21/2013
On October 3, Dr. Donald Moss, the Chair of the School of Mind-Body Medicine, provided a workshop on breath training for attendees at the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, in Berkeley, California.
Hypnosis and biofeedback practitioners regularly use paced breathing as a component in hypnosis induction and relaxation. Diaphragmatic and yogic breathing are familiar tools in meditative practice and in self-regulation training. Traditional Chinese Medicine has observed: “…the tranquillity of the mind regulates the breathing naturally and, in turn, regulated breathing brings on concentration of the mind naturally” (Xiangcai, 2000, p. 7).
