Breath-Taking for Children

with Carole Freeman

$29 More Info

Yes, it’s true, your child is perfect - now.

Everything from the shape of your child’s skull and facial features to the function of their lungs is dramatically impacted by their habitual breathing patterns. It’s estimated that 85% of us have some degree of dysfunctional breathing. 

Much of this starts in childhood and has dramatic consequences on our health, our brain function, and our appearance over our lifetime. This is where you can make a dramatic difference in your child’s life by guiding them to optimal breathing. 

We’ll connect the dots between your child’s breathing pattern and their childhood development affecting their overall health.
