What is Transformational Breath®?

Transformational Breath® is a gentle, simple technique that helps people to open up the full potential of their breathing system for better physical and emotional well-being. It teaches a pattern of conscious breathing that is natural, safe and healthy which can have many benefits, including increased energy, better immune response and increased ability to deal with stress in a healthy way.

Transformational Breath® was developed by Dr Judith Kravitz. Incorporating her knowledge of conscious breathing techniques and various other healing and spiritual principles, Transformational Breath® is a highly efficient and effective technique that has been used and found beneficial by many thousands of people world-wide for over thirty years.

Transformational Breath® is taught as a powerful self help tool, with the intention to give each person an understanding of how they can work with their own breath on an ongoing basis to create personal transformation. It can be used to great effect either on its own, or in combination with other types of therapy/treatment.

How does it help?

Our energy, our circulation, our life itself depends on the expansion and release of our breathing mechanism, the movement we create within our bodies and the constant exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. If our breathing becomes restricted we may limit the effectiveness of this process and this may show up in physical illness, general lack of energy, or feeling emotionally drained or upset.

Indeed restricted breathing can be caused by emotional upset. We hold our breath to prevent ourselves being overwhelmed by our feelings and when this becomes habitual we lose the ability to breathe deeply and connect to our spiritual well-being, our relationship to love and joy.

Transformational Breath® encourages a full diaphragmatic breath. This, in turn, massages all the organs that come into contact with, or are affected by, the movement of the diaphragm. I observe the breath and see physically where the breath is being held and where any blockages may be. I will then use simple techniques including adjusting the position of the body, gentle hands-on pressure, sound techniques and positive affirmations to help the breath to open up and flow more freely.

Because it encourages a constant, flowing, open breath, the specific breath pattern in Transformational Breath® can access blocked areas of emotion without usual holding habits. In this way, past emotional memories held in the body can surface and finally be integrated.

With regular, brief periods of practice the breath will begin to flow more freely at all times and it is common for people to report better health, mental clarity and emotional freedom. Transformational Breath® is simple to learn and suitable for people of all ages, from newborn to old age. A few sessions with a facilitator will enable you to use this technique for yourself as a lifelong tool.

Many have also found they experience expanded states of consciousness, or a stronger connection to spirit while cultivating a greater awareness of the breath and self. Your life can open up and become more fulfilling through the practice of Transformational Breath®.


"I have so far received two Transformation Breath treatments, with some exceptional and deep results for me personally. I was a little nervous about receiving this therapy at first (as it was something I was introduced to lightly and wanted to try), however Jane was completely communicative prior to the treatments (so I knew what to expect) and also supportive throughout the treatments themselves. The treatment facilitation and journey were both incredible experiences and very well orchestrated, handled and supported."
