in Breathing/Respiratory MusclesFAQ

PowerLung is specifically designed to help individuals learn deep breathing and to reinforce this action through muscle strength and muscle memory.

Once you can breathe more deeply you can better manage your breathing and thus possibly reduce hyperventilation.

Many music teachers use PowerLung with their beginning students to help them learn deep breathing. The same is true for coaches who want their athletes – young and old, beginner or expert – to breathe deeper and “control” or manage the way they use their air. Shallow breathing may promote breathing that is short and quick – almost like panting – which can contribute to hyperventilation. People who suffer “panic attacks” often describe this sensation and have reported excellent results with PowerLung helping them learn to breathe deep and not hyperventilate.
